Available in 7 encoded colours and two complementary surface finishes – matt and glossy – the “Cromatica” collection brings out a sensitive and original reflection of colour gradient applied to the built environment.
Designed by young Italian design duo Studio Formafantasma, Andrea Trimarchi & Simone Farresin, based in Amsterdam created the large porcelain stoneware glazed sheets as fields where the chromatic quotient in pastel shades softly mix together, rich in variations of intensity, which comes through in infinite shades and gradients. In addition to being produced in large format, the sheet can also be cut down to smaller sizes, making it an open and versatile collection.
This work represents a reflection in colour, and above all a proposal on how to transfer the large number of shades typical of a hand-crafted piece into a project produced on a large scale. Formafantasma seem to have chosen a distinction between colour “in isolation” and “intangible” yet ever-present colour as the basis of their work giving form and consistency to the relationships that link objects to their users.
