Marazzi’s latest research in the area of industrial craftsmanship has led to the rediscovery of the beauty of authentic, colourful, decorated ceramics in collections with a hand-made flavour, created by combining craft skills with industrial technology. Crogiolo represents unique levels of quality and aesthetics, reflecting Marazzi’s constant research and technological innovation together with a return to a human “feel” and human workmanship, and the care and attention typical of hand-made pieces. These materials give spaces vibrancy and a warm, welcoming mood, beyond styles and beyond time.
The name Crogiolo is particularly important in Marazzi’s history, since it is the name of the industrial building where Marazzi was born, in the 1930s, between the railway and the Modena canal, and the place where, in the 1980s, the ‘Il Crogiolo’ research and experimentation hub was founded. It was there that architects, designers, artists and photographers were asked to interpret ceramics with freedom, leading to a fertile season of pure research, and the Marazzi ‘Sperimentazioni’, designer tiles by Roger Capron, Amleto Dalla Costa, Original Designers, Saruka Nagasawa and Robert Gligorov, with photographs by Luigi Ghirri, Cuchi White and Charles Traub.
The ‘Il Crogiolo’ series of booklets documents the brand’s history and 112 projects involving new applications and decorative techniques, with illustrations, original sketches, photographs and comments by the designers and potters, which are still a source of inspiration of the company’s product development today.
This is the spirit behind the new Crogiolo collections, D_Segni Blend, Scenario, Lume and Zellige, which now join D_Segni, D_Segni Scaglie and Colore, all perfectly reconciling a love of “hand-made” pieces and authentic ceramics with the continual research and innovation central to Marazzi for over eight years.
