Ceramica Sant’Agostino presented a new line of tiles by Philippe Starck. Called Flexible Architecture, the tiles blur the line between architecture and surface decoration by playing with surfaces, depth and extended joints. The tiles mark Starck’s first foray into ceramics. The collection is composed of tiles of different thickness, surface finishes, joints and colors that allow a variety of different designs to be created. The tiles are available in thicknesses of 8 mm and 12 mm, and are realized in two textures – one rough, and the other slightly wavy, recalling handmade Italian ceramics.
Ceramica Sant’Agostino was set up in 1964 near Ferrara, an area far from Emilia where most of the Italian ceramic factories are situated.
