Piemme collaborates with Gordon Guillaumier at Fuorisalone 2018

February 2018

Period inspiration, colour and movement characterise Shades; the new ceramic tile collection from Ceramiche Piemme.  Here the ethereal beauty of watercolour painting is recreated on ceramics using the most advanced digital technologies.  Shades is the product of a fruitful collaboration between Ceramiche Piemme and designer Gordon Guillaumier; who is noted for his delicate painted motifs.

Shades will be previewed at Fuorisalone 2018, which will run from 17th to 22nd April at Via Palermo 8, Milan, Italy.  This collection of porcelain stoneware tiles and slabs reproduces the brushstroke effect by replicating the brushstrokes and manual skills of the designer.

"For this collection I have drawn inspiration from hand-decorated ceramics, such as the historic ceramics of Caltagirone, to name but one," explains Guillaumier.  "Starting from my watercolours, I wanted to go against linearity and geometry to give the idea of a hand-decorated surface."

The five basic concrete-effect shades are combined with four types of decoration; each expressed in five hues ranging from blue to light blue, white, golden and mid blue.  The resulting tiles recreate the colour movement typical of the watercolour technique.
