After winning the prestigious #MetropolisLikes award, Affrescati also wins the Archiproducts Design Award 2021.
More than 750 projects viewed by a jury made up of over 60 creatives, designers, international architectural firms and photographers: the edition of the Archiproducts design awards 2021 has put the spotlight on world design by celebrating excellence from all over the world. The sections examined for the award included: furniture, bathroom, kitchen, office, lighting, décor, finishes, structures, coatings, components and lifestyle.
Affrescati – nominated in the category Finishes – has won over the jury for its concept and design.
The collection offers an original and eclectic interpretation of the Italian artistic heritage enclosed in the tradition of wall decorations. The multifaceted qualities of stoneware have made it possible, for the first time, to convey the charm of the fresco to the floor.
The story of Affrescati starts so long ago, from suggestions linked to the fascination of the frescoes of Pompeii, Amalfi Cathedral and the starry vault of the Scrovegni Chapel. It is intimately connected to the impressions gathered during a deep immersion in the Italian tradition of wall decorations, performed above all to search for new ways of conceiving spaces.
The result is a real fresco, created in the cutting-edge laboratory of Refin and transformed into an exclusive decorative ceramic surface, deeply textured and rich in colour contrasts.
