Milan Design Week: Marazzi presents the new Grande 2018 collection @ The Tile Club
Wednesday 11 April 2018
For Milan Design Week 2018, Marazzi presents The Tile Club, a temporary space designed by Matteo Cibic with Studio Blanco for the launch of the new Grande 2018 collection of slabs.
Inspired by London's Gentleman’s Clubs, The Tile Club is open to anyone interested in ceramics as an artistic and architectural form and has been designed throughout using the new slabs in the Marazzi Grande 2018 collection: new sizes – 160x320 cm and 162x324 cm – new thickness of 12 mm as alternative to 6 mm, new looks inspired by the finest marbles, the tactile personality of concrete and the mineral allure of metal, are all now presented alongside Grand Carpet, the collection signed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, which provides the complete wall coverings for the café and wunderkammer, two of the Club's five rooms.
A lobby, an open central lounge and a bistro complete The Tile Club, a space created by Marazzi together with the designers as a unique experience, rich in inspirations, special performances and live ceramic decoration sessions, open to the public until June 2018.
