When Gino Paoli sang Il cielo in una stanza, he did not imagine that his wonderful poetic image would become reality thanks to the new capsule collection R (E) VOLUTION TILES born from Seletti’s ironic, innovative, light-hearted creativity combined with entrepreneurial vision and excellence. technique and product and the formal and aesthetic research of Ceramiche Bardelli.
Presented to the press in Milan in the Seletti Show Room in Corso Garibaldi, a magical and energetic place, which transports us to the dreamlike dimensions evoked by Lewis Carrol in Alice in Wonderland, the R (R) VOLUTION TILES collection consists of surfaces for floors and coatings with proposals with a strong aesthetic impact designed for the home, contract and hotel industry that radically transform the interior spaces, completely overturning their perception.
A strange collection, a new point of view, an important challenge, an innovative language.
Here is a summary of the new capsule collection by Seletti 4 Ceramiche Bardelli, a 2D collection with typically 3D aesthetics and design.
R (E) VOLUTION TILES, made with materials of the highest level, consists of five lines – Distortion, Diamond, Black & White, Elements 1 – Clouds and Elements 2 – Water
Let’s start with the fundamental elements recalled by the Elements line: Earth, Fire, Water inherent in the very concept of ceramics and Air.
A series that sees nature and its elements as the undisputed protagonist, in which the dream of walking on a blue sky dotted with soft clouds becomes possible!
In this case the revolution consists in having used elements such as primary sky and water but never used before. Because? We asked ourselves
Gianmaria Bardelli CEO of Ceramiche Bardelli and Stefano Seletti artistic director of Seletti tell us
Let’s turn our point of view upside down! It was our answer. We express our idea of freedom: being able to “walk on the clouds”! A very strong, very powerful feeling!
The Black & White series – a mono pressure mosaic with a glossy and matt finish – expresses the consolidated expertise of Ceramica Bardelli, while the Diamond series in monoporous ceramic available with a glossy finish – in white, black, orange, mustard and red – and in glass with mirror finish in the Mirror version, makes it possible to imagine a retro aesthetic and vintage atmospheres in addition to current creations.
But it is certainly in the Distortion series – a porcelain stoneware tile – with a super-matt finish thanks to the no-reflex glazes – that in the motifs and geometries reinterprets the iconic black and white pattern of Seletti, drawing inspiration from the imagination of Maurits Cornelis Escher, that the revolutionary scope of the optical “distortion” effect is fully expressed
The meeting with Seletti taught us to change our point of view towards ceramics! With them we made a dream come true
confides Gianmaria Bardelli
The meeting with Bardelli represented a real challenge accepted and won!” Adds Stefano Seletti
I discovered that the world of upholstery, due to the possibilities it offers, close to those of art, has something magical!
In our collections we want to give lightness and positivity with the weapons of emotions and amazement
The only weapons the world desperately needs these days!
