The Crochet collection is the transposition of typical geometrical embroideries from the ancient art of sicilian knitting into mutaforma circular glass ornaments. Precious trims born from the fast-moving hands of local women. ancient wise gestures turn into elegant decorative inserts for walls and floorings. contemporary surfaces enriched by sicilian tradition.
Circular designs made of extra clear glass squared picotesserae TILLA® with a 2,5 up to 7 mm side, decorated with colored and metallic nanolayers and applied on polymeric flexible base supports. touch and feel: glossy / embossed surface / vitreous.
Material’s edges: defined, not sharp.
“Crochet” products are suitable for decorative interior applications and sheltered exterior uses.
Mutaforma’s hypertechnological support modules guarantee optimized laying time thanks to the puzzle-like joints technology that permits to ease installers work.
Being only a few millimeters thick, mutaforma’s material can be laid directly on existing levelled surfaces.
The limited weight per square meter grants advantages in trasportation and handling costs and avoids vertical slip while laying
The perfect laying
1 - the substrate must be perfectly smooth, cohesive and well dried. avoid bumps and dips: mutaforma’s material behaves like a decorative wallpaper.
2 - spread the right quantity of glue using the specific mutaforma spatula. mutaforma’s material requires only a thin layer of glue.
3 - follow the enclosed manuals and data sheets.
Cuts can be made with diamond disc or water jet.
Use a soft cloth imbued with a domestic glass-cleaner or a mixture of hot water and alcohol. abrasive products may matt glass. Do not use acid or corrosive detergents.
Material brightness is enhanced by frontal lighting sources such as: windows, diffused lights, focused spotlight. avoid grazing lights.
