Starting from the earth to explore new territories, cotto has been reformulated and reinterpreted by a multitude of creative talents. Fornace Brioni establishes ties with various designers to bring new expressions to an ancient material.
The Socialite Family
The PARIS-MILANO collection stems from the collaboration between Cristina Celestino and The Socialite Family, for the creation of ceramic works steeped in imagery shared by France and Italy. The inspiration comes from the attempt to combine classic details from Italian and French architecture in everyday useful objects.
Forite is a collaborative research project conducted by Studio Plastique and Snøhetta, with the aim of exploring potential applications for recycled glass. Working with prototypes and variations, a process has been developed for the recycling of glass components from discarded electronic devices, leading to a product that takes advantage of the variable quality of the material.
Danish design meets Italian workmanship in the collaboration between Ferm Living and Fornace Brioni. The interchange stems from the desire to mix cultures and to leave crossover traces between Italy and Denmark.
The designer Giovanni Barbieri has collaborated with Fornace Brioni to develop a terracotta tile, the Piastrelle Segnate. The cladding, with three relief modules, creates an original material hieroglyph, with an archaic, minimal appearance. The warm earthy tones provide chromatic depth and character, creating surfaces that resonate with the history of the earth.
As an exclusive, Fornace Brioni has created a tile in traditional and glazed terracotta for Cle Tile, underscoring the crafted workmanship of the material. Casale Rustico has a block made with hand-cut Italian terracotta, covered with a glossy white glaze with a lightly rippled surface.
