Architect@Work UK, the event dedicated to architects and interior designers, will be held in London from 30th to 31st of January 2019.
Ceramiche Refin will be At the event to show you the Vetri and Masterplan collection.

VETRI: Glass is a material that offers intrinsic clarity and harmony, distinguished by its very own duplicity: transparent and matt, fragile and at the same time sturdy. A study of this material led to the creation of the Vetri ceramic tile collection. Backed by the most sophisticated manufacturing technologies, Ceramiche Refin has developed its own research which is expressed in the creation of original surfaces with a notable innovative personality. Vetri is a collection with a strong identity: the delicate colour variations that mark the edges create a surface with an unprecedented depth and an elegant geometrical mesh. The glossy finishing reflects and emphasises light, lending its surroundings a brightness with evergreen charm.

MASTERPLAN: Concrete is among the most used material in today’s construction; it all started in the first half of the XX century with the work of such visionary architects as Auguste Perret, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Kenzo Tange and Alvar Aalto, whose contribution paved the way to the architectural vague of the XX century. The most important member of this current, called Modernist movement, was La Corbusier, who gave rise to Brutalist architecture (from the French expression “Beton Brut”) and lifted this material to unprecedented prestige, effectively turning it into a mass construction material. Concrete is versatile; it comes to life without any shape and because of it provides for countless formal options, from smooth finishes to rough surfaces, with a very diverse aesthetic. A careful research of the many characteristics of this material is the fil rouge to our three solutions, BLOCK, MOLD and PLAIN; these three collections feature different characteristics brought together in the Master Plan. A broad range of different materials inspired by reinforced concrete in its modern version, an homage to the determined charm of industrial concrete.
