Abitare la Terra (living the earth), designed by Maria Luisa Brighenti, is a new range that inaugurates the Cerasarda Design section.
Abitare la Terra draws inspiration from the warm, rich and generous earth of Sardinia, to breathe life into an unprecedented collection characterised by great materiality, chromatic colours enriched by contrasts (Accento), and exclusive decorative textures.
An original ceramic material which marries craftsmanship - the artist’s handmade work fits perfectly into the tradition of Cerasarda production - with the avantgarde technologies of the Romani Group. Available in a large number of modular sizes, the collection enables an infinite range of solutions for tiling floors and walls.
Abitare la Terra is intended to satisfy the requirements of an international audience of designers, interior architects and private users looking for authentic materials for their contemporary living designs.
Accento is a line of saturated, brilliant colours, characterised by the contrast between a thick coloured glass surface and a satin-finish tonal base. It provides accent colours in rooms furnished with the chromatic tones of Abitare la Terra or as a collection in its own right for designing surfaces with a strong, bold character.
Abitare la Terra is a porcelain stoneware range; while the Accento decors are split and tumbled glazed porcelain stoneware pieces.
Abitare la Terra is available in Barbagia - six tones of green; Ogliastra - six tones of blue; Bosa - six tones of clay; Sulcis - two blacks and four tones of grey; and three whites. Accento decors are available in Bianco, Mimosa, Mandarino, Arancione, Lavanda, Celeste, Indaco, Blu, Verde, and Nero. Rodo and Tracce decors are also available.
Abitare la Terra is offered in a wide range of modular formats: 800 by 800, 400 by 800, 400 by 400, 200 by 800, 65 by 800, and 65 by 400mm; plus 65 by 65mm mosaic on a 200 by 200mm mesh backing. The double-fired white body wall tiles come in 200 by 200mm and 65 by 200mm; plus 65 by 65mm mosaic on a 200 by 200mm mesh backing.
