06/02/2020 - Daniel Libeskind and Casalgrande Padana have joined forces to create Fractile, a unique collection of porcelain stoneware tiles that embodies the magic of fractal mathematics, where the whole looks the same as each of its parts, beyond the borders of mathematics and imagination.

These exclusive three-dimensional porcelain stoneware tiles, designed by Daniel Libeskind and manufactured by Casalgrande Padana, are the result of a sophisticated industrial procedure, which includes glazing and firing processes at 1250 °C, using select mixtures of clays, quartzes and feldspars, which provide a colour-changing effect while ensuring the highest quality, resistance and durability.

A geometric relief pattern and a metalescent surface finish provide the tile with an unexpected sense of movement under the light. This deconstruction and reconstruction of luminous reflexes enhances the whole architectural envelope.

The Fractile tiles made their debut in 2013 at Bologna Water Design, where these special threedimensional tiles were used to clad Pinnacle, an installation placed in the 16th century Cortile del Priore at former maternity hospital to pay tribute to the verticality of medieval Bologna, its towers and historical buildings.

The partnership between Daniel Libeskind and Casalgrande Padana continued with the revolutionary ceramic envelope for the Vanke Pavilion at Expo 2015.

Again in 2015, these three-dimensional fractal tiles were used to clad the imposing landmark designed by Daniel Libeskind located in the Reggio Emilia countryside, near the Casalgrande Padana production plant: Casalgrande Ceramic Crown.

Sapphire, also designed by Daniel Libeskind, is the perfect continuation of this journey through experimentation. This multi-storey building features surprising and complex volumes and a ventilated façade clad with Fractile porcelain stoneware tiles with Bios Self Cleaning technology.
