KOTTO XL TERRA
Porcelain stoneware wall/floor tiles
Kotto is the outcome of a simple idea, rooted in tradition and the origin of the material and transformed to create new interiors with a modern flavour and attractive design.
In every size, Kotto highlights the variation that originates from the transformed clay, the skilful hand-crafting of the tile, the mould and the firing process, conserving the material’s most intimate structure.
Subtle shades with the warm hues of the natural clay, or the pigmented or whitewashed material, give a warm, elegant, timeless vibrancy.
In the large sizes (80x80, 60x60) of the XL collection, the variation and the signs of the hand-crafting and the firing of the clay are dispersed across the surface to form gentle, fluid patterning. Ideal for design schemes where tradition and modernity merge in fresh harmonies.
The collection also includes the brick format for a bare brick wall covering. The long side of each brick retains the distinctive signs of hand-forging and the residues of sand from the mould. On the short side it conserves the marks left by extraction from the mould. This allows bare brick walls to be constructed with the bricks end-on or side-on, conserving the intrinsic nature of the material.
The brick series also includes the “whitewashed brick” shade for building the type of whitened wall typical of urban architecture.
