For this project Teamwork has developed together with the Hot Mess studio a unique cladding in terms of shapes and effects to cover the external facade of the Tengo Cafè in St Austell (UK).

We have created two 3D pieces with a rounded shape that refer directly to the concept of the studio. A concept that in the whitish-gold colors is inspired by the colors of the earth, in particular by the minerals present in the St Austell quarry, recalling to the enhancement of the beauty of the area.

The 3D tiles are meant to be used as pots for edible plants. Teamwork has therefore created custom-made holes in the 3D bespoke pieces, to facilitate the irrigation of the plants, which further embellish the uniqueness of the wall The natural flow of water made it necessary to create zero-absorption pieces: this is why high-quality clays fired at high temperatures were used, creating a zero-absorption porcelain material.
