Hastings Tile & Bath has launched three new designs and additions to its classic Fornasetti design, all from Ceramica Bardelli.
The three collections that Hastings is unveiling are comprised of two new designs by Marcel Wanders and one from Robert Dawson.
Wanders’ two collections for Bardelli are called Sofia and Eve. Each is a collection of interior floor-and-wall, rectified, hand-painted porcelain tiles. Sofia is available in five color varieties with a matte finish. The designs are created with a laser-engraved silicone roller press, so that no two tiles are exactly alike. The Eve collection is produced using double firing techniques and hand painting on a matte background. The decorations are available in five color variations and as a solid color.
The third collection that Hastings is introducing is Arianna Oro, designed by Robert Dawson. Arianna Oro, a collection of hand-painted ceramic tiles, includes double-fired wall tiles in 12 mixed patterns, and four single patterns made with a pure gold silkscreen print on a background of matte white, glossy white or glossy black. All the patterns can be rotated and randomly combined, or arranged on the basis of an intentional sequence, permitting different laying solutions.
Hastings also introduced the Tangram collection designed by Atelier Bardelli, designer for Ceramica Bardelli. Atelier’s work is done by hand using freehand drawing, stenciling (the “spolvero” transfer technique) and decalcomania or mixed media for more specific detailing. The Tangram collection involves the random mixing and matching of geometric shapes that unexpectedly slash and punctuate the space.
