Frame-Up: a new porcelain tile collection from Refin
Italian porcelain tile manufacturer Refin has just launched its latest collections at 100% Design, London, and Cersaie, Bologna. Amongst the new ranges is Frame-Up, the latest collaboration between DesignTaleStudio, the company's design, production and experimental laboratory, and Studio FM Milano.
Frame-Up is an evolution of the Frame collection, a huge success for the brand and winner of a European Design Award 2013.
The Frame-Up collection comprises four new decorative designs: two geometric patterns inspired by the artistic avant-garde circles of the period between the two world wars and the early Sixties - Vanguard Circle and Vanguard Square – and two reminiscent of the sinuous graphic patterns found in majolica tiles from the Emilia region of Italy around the late 18th century - Emilia Flower and Emilia Tradition.
The fragmentation and deconstruction of the designs transform historical research into a new contemporary graphic language, creating a highly original, elegant product. Both designs can be used in a variety of ways to create either a regular, modular pattern, or a contemporary patchwork effect which is achieved by mixing pattern scales randomly.
Frame-Up is available in porcelain stoneware tiles measuring 60 by 60 centimetres, and represents a powerful creative tool for architects and interior designers aiming to innovate and enhance commercial projects, public areas and private residences.
