FILO, designed by Italian architects and brothers Alessandro and Francesco Mendini as an out-of-competition entry in the “Create your Tile” competition run by DesignTaleStudio, trademark Ceramiche Refin.
The porcelain tiles are 75×75 cm (about 30×30 inches) and come in four different colorways and one pattern in two different densities. It’s like having op-art on your floor! You can change the pattern and feel of the floor just by changing the ways that the tiles are laid out. I bet it would be create an even more dramatic look if you were to combine multiple colors together!
Our decorative patterns originate from a range of references: nature, history, symbols, geometry. In the case of FiLo for DesignTaleStudio, the strained weave of the lines comes from the three-dimensional movement of a grid; waves are created in its geometries, changing their measurements. The hypothesis is to obtain a vaguely electrical optical result, drawing attention to the floor as we walk on it. –Alessandro and Francesco Mendini
