Plumage is a stunning collection of delicate three-dimensional ceramic and porcelain mosaic tiles in the form of bird’s feathers. The project is signed by Cristina Celestino’s design studio Attico for Italian brand BottegaNove.
And again Cristina, you make the magic happen. Thank you for sharing.
About – Plumage starts from and thoroughly explores both the artisans’ traditional ceramic, porcelain mosaic and the artistic pottery.
The collection, born from the comparison of the two artisans’ traditions, has resulted in a line with tridimensional tiles with ribs, to which you can apply endless decoration types. So a product of artisans’ excellence that, although it can be produced in big quantities, allows a total personalisation in the nuances, colour and matching.
Plumage comes from a strongly evocative scenario, inspired by the birds’ feathers, leading us through a subtle interplay between contemporary vision and traditional work. The research on plumage in nature gets interpreted into the tiles in the overlapping of patterns, shapes and decoration, which give the tiled wall the perception of the single feather and of the global plumage in the meantime.
The collection has two different lines of tiles, handmade and inspired by two feather patterns. The two collections can be both in ceramic with handmade decoration and in Limoges porcelain dyed in the clay. The possible patterns in the walls with these mosaic tiles are endless and generate fascinating ambience, crowded with natural geometries like those of feathers that draw graphic forms and unexpected lines thanks to their decoration.
