M+ Design Quilt


Quilt is a stoneware mosaic in which the modules can be installed uniformly, for a geometrical effect, or at random, in an uneven layout that recalls antique Venetian Seminato pavings.‎ As for the stitching, the grout creates the pattern.‎

With Quilt, the traditional mosaic chip is expanded in size to create contemporary visual effects which can be personalised every time, just like a hand-stitched piece.‎ The different colours and textures available enhance this potential.‎

The project is produced as a 9×9 cm square of through-body porcelain stoneware scored so that a segment can be broken off from the rest of the material after grouting.‎

The project runs on three basic tones: Chalk, Clay and Mud.‎ Every different colour is available in both smooth and textured version (RAW).‎ Starting from the three basic colours, more tone are added and each clove comes in a different range depending on the belonging chip: 3 variants on Chalk (Ocher, Cameo, Sugar Paper), one on Clay (Mud) and one on Mud (Slate).‎

The tiles, realized in porcelain stoneware, can be laid in a regular pattern, to create a sequence of geometrical figures, or unevenly.‎ The grout is 3 mm thick.‎
