Practice Practice Practice: Graphic 3D Ceramic Tiles by Zaven

Zaven, a multidisciplinary studio located in Venice, Italy, ventured into ceramic as a medium after discovering the work of Italian artist Nino Caruso a few years ago. In this project, entitled Practice Practice Practice, the pair gives nod to Caruso’s work by exploring scale and repetition in three-dimensional tiles that aim to “animate interiors”.

Using clay, Zaven was able to bring a bold, graphic element to a product that’s often got a flat exterior. The tiles play with positive and negative space through the mix of concave and convex surfaces. The result is three different modules that can be installed in different variations for a curated look.

Zaven debuted the Practice Practice Practice tiles at the London Design Fair as part of Brompton Design District.
