Ceramica Globo previewed its new 2016 collection inside a museum-concept exhibition in the Showroom of Corso Monforte 15, where the ” Display” collection was literally “on display”
Ceramica Globo collaborated with the Italian – Danish duo GamFratesi two of the most acclaimed and renowned young designers in recent years, who presented dedicated spaces, where the products essential geometries were combined with different patterns and colours like the scenery of a theatre.
Geometric patterns, warm colours, shadings, decorations, the nine structures recreate just as many environments with different styles, becoming the stage for the various models of the collection, highlighting their versatility and the attitude to fit inside the most diverse atmospheres.
Display, is a collection of four spacious square – shaped washbasins with clean lines.
The Display Collection includes both ultra-compact and large-scale designs, streamlined pieces with careful detailing like the built-in storage tray.
The four washbasins each have a different size and include a set of built – in ceramic tops alongside the tub for a functional and harmonious solution. The result is a monolithic object that incorporates a game of different heights, of wet and dry, where nothing is left to chance and everything is in place and within reach.
Display is a personal, intimate collection with a richly detailed profile whose combination of vertical and horizontal lines is inspired by neoplastic aesthetics.
Alongside the displays, a trail made of frames and images will accompany visitors along the path covering both floors of the showroom .
From the walls to the ceiling, photos and images recount the collection and its protagonists, designers, company and especially, the new products.
