In 2013 we made a mural in the “Womens VIP area” at the Mall Shoe District in Dubai. The project consisted in the creation of three-dimensional special pieces in a hexagonal shape and two other relief tiles that recall the shape of a flower. The hexagonal piece is characterized by two different heights thus generating an inclined upper surface. The tile characterized by curves and variable heights was developed by creating a model with the latest generation techniques. The aesthetic result of the product arises from the subsequent glazing and has been combined with the performance requirements given by the porcelain stoneware. The pieces, arranged according to the pattern desired by the designers, create shapes and colors that enhance the surrounding environment.
Hexagonal in shape, but with a silver finish, is the piece we created for the reception of the Sheraton Hotel in Edinburgh. The cladding creates a reflective wall which takes advantage of the shape and method of laying the piece, bringing out five deer silhouettes.
Our collaboration with Giles Miller continues with a particular piece with a rhomboidal shape created by the designer himself, with glossy, matt and metallic surface effects depending on the designer’s design idea. Also in this case, the combination of the effects of the surface and the laying pattern specially studied by the designers create unique and personalized surfaces, thus enhancing the surrounding environment.
In 2014 we created three-dimensional rhombuses for the cladding of a column in the Mall Shoe District in Dubai. The diamond shapes, designed by Giles Miller, are finished with a matte white enamel and gold enamel.
