Domus introduces Pittorica, a new porcelain tile collection designed by Studiopepe

Launching in February, exclusively at Domus, Pittorica is a new colourful glazed porcelain stoneware collection suitable for interior walls and floors, designed by Milan's Studiopepe.

Research by the two creative directors, Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara di Pinto, led to the creation of a range comprised of 14 plain solid colours in three palettes – neutral, background and bold colours, and available in three different shapes, a triangle, a square and a brick shape.

Complete with a silky matt finish, the tiles are mutually compatible and can be used singularly or coordinated to create interesting decorative layouts, bringing out a full, modern theme in expressive colour.

With a retro feel, the colours span from dark shades to soft greys and neutrals along with pink, blues, green and terracotta shades, expressing the universe of colour though an extremely current palette, offering elegance and modernity to any interior space.

"Suitable for both walls and floors, the decorative ability of Pittorica is enhanced by the rectified formats which guarantee layouts and installation with minimum grout lines where the colour stands out," Domus tells Material Source. "The statement triangular shape formats are a key feature statement in the collection and guarantee a decorative capacity to characterise interior surfaces. The solid matt colours give the collection a silky consistency, which is further enriched with a textured canvas weave print which is stamped into each tile. Each tile has a unique, subtle, almost imperceptible variation."

Studiopepe proudly describes their collection, saying, "the mystery of colour in the game of perception and illusion. Pittorica is the poetry of the imagination, rhymes of graphic patterns and hues of colour put together in freedom and fun."
