Baita was designed to pay homage to the traditional Stube, the rooms with wooden walls and floors typical of homes in the Alpine areas, inside which daily family life would take place. These traditional settings, which still play an important role today in homes and commercial premises in the mountains, are alluded to in the wood-like intertwined patterns that are the distinctive feature of this ceramic collection.
The particular characteristic of Baita are the colour variants it comes in, with each one recalling a different stage in the life cycle of larch wood, which evolves over the years as it ages and is exposed to light.
The colour range includes shades reminiscent of the freshly cut trunk (Fresh), the wood as it is used in natural settings (Natural) and the shades the essences take on when exposed to direct sunlight (Sun) or applied in shady areas (Shade).
The prestige of wood
The Mansion range is the result of painstaking research into the growing trend to recreate the aged appearance of antique wood in contemporary interiors.
The collection evokes the prestige and charm of hand-shaved wood, old floorboards restored using plaster and the worn appearance of wood, enhancing the vintage effect of this natural material with the most innovative techniques in ceramic production.
Mansion is aimed at more sophisticated, contemporary interiors and proposes a modern interpretation of high-class, antique parquet panels, in which the design of each single piece becomes part of a seamless flooring layout, enhancing the feeling of continuity and spaciousness.
