Rombini: an alphabet of shapes and colors
05/11/2015 -Studio Bouroullec’s projects always develop through a process, a tale of modules that make up a color consistency that is independent of the material that composes them. The “vibrations” are the true key style of the Studi vibrations that objects transmit to the final consumer, chromatic vibrations, vibrations of matter.
Rombini is a ceramic tale intended to convey these very vibrations. A research process that lasted more than two years. An exploration of the world of color that had to overcome many technical and manufacturing obstacles , before which Mutina and the Bouroullec brothers did not stop reaching the common goal: a project of vibration, all made of ceramics.
“Rombini is an alphabet of shapes and colors. The project consists of three models: tile, mosaic and relief elements. It is a collection that offers a complete solution, offering different combinations; rhythmic and colorful connections ranging from the tile to the mosaic, from the mosaic to the relief, from the relief to the tile” Bouroullec brothers say.
Rombini is ceramics vibration, told in the symbolic Bouroullecs’ colors - gray, blue, green, red and white, a master key to create infinite combinations with other colors - through different worlds. So the shape of the rhombus is told through elements in communication with each other, to become story and exchange. Rombini is a real interior design project, based on colour and composed by three elements: carré, losange and triangle.
Carré, 40x40 rectified slabs in glazed porcelain stoneware, are produced on a mould made of many little embossing diamonds on a matt surface which gives a strong ceramic identity to the collection. Carré is available in two versions: Uni, where colour is evenly distributed throughout the whole slab, and Light, where colour is used to underline the white diamonds outlines.
With Losange, the shape of the rhombus becomes bigger and turns into a chip of a mosaic. Made of double charge porcelain stoneware, each piece is installed on 27,5x25,7 cm sheets. The chromatic range results to be deep and intense, thanks to the matt surface which gives a natural character to the product. Even in this case the element is available in two versions, through the usage of matching or with contrasting grout, for a stronger vibration.
Thanks to Triangle, the shape of the rhombus is interpreted in its three-dimensional shape, in order to create games of lights and darkness on the surface: the elements, realized in Large and Small versions, seem to arise from the floor and to carry on the wall covering.
