FLEXIBLE ARCHITECTURE
BY PHILIPPE STARCK
FOR CERAMICA SANT’AGOSTINO
The Flexible Architecture collection of ceramic tiles does away with the traditional interpretation of the joint previously intended as something to conceal or reduce as much as possible, instead integrating it into the tile itself and thus transforming it into an original expressive element. Lightly emphasized in both pattern and dimensions, the joint, (or better, its ceramic reproduction) is created on one, two or four sides of the tile. The ability to freely match and the huge number of compositions available thanks to the three variations of tile allow the creation of infinite variations in the layout of the floor or walls, thus overcoming the traditionally perceived limits associated with the modular nature of tiles and dynamically interacting with the aesthetic quality of the architecture. This design theme can be emphasized through a wide range of available colours (grey, white, yellow and greige) to which the different surface finishes can be added (with or without structure, matte or gloss). A final element of variety for personalization is found in the different thicknesses available: 7 mm for the joint and 12 mm for the structural surface, created in two specific surface types – one with a rough finish for the joint and the other lightly uneven, which call to mind the classic handmade ceramics – and which allow a vast range of combinations.
