cutting [ceramic] edge
study of building materials, tile cutters and workshop of excellence

After an initial analysis of the state of the art of raw materials, trend, and products for cutting tiles, the research team has identified a series of guidelines and intervention areas for the promotion of innovative products in the world of tilers.

These guidelines were fundamental for the creation of a collaborative workshop between the Company and young designers, recreating a highly educational moment devoted to the pursuit of innovation. Thanks to the focus on material selection criteria and CMF principles, it was also possible to identify new communicative-functional strategies for the product category analyzed.
