Haiku by Botteganove

The name Haiku comes from a short japanese poetic compositions typology by three verses, as the collection is composed by three different shapes, that match each other to create different patterns. The third dimension of the shapes play and change with light, creating new surfaces continuously. Inspired by Carlo Scarpa’s work, and the three-dimensional rhythm of his concrete architecture.

Plumage by Botteganove

The collection Plumage, designed by Cristina Celestino, starts from and thoroughly explores both the artisans’ traditional ceramic, porcelain mosaic and the artistic pottery. The collection, born from the comparison of the two artisans’ traditions, has resulted in a line with tridimensional tiles with ribs, to which you can apply endless decoration types. So a product of artisans’ excellence that, although it can be produced in big quantities, allows a total personalisation in the nuances, colour and matching.

The collection comes from a strongly evocative scenario, inspired by the birds’ feathers, leading us through a subtle interplay between contemporary vision and traditional work. The research on plumage in nature gets interpreted into the tiles in the overlapping of patterns, shapes and decoration, which give the tiled wall the perception of the single feather and of the global plumage in the meantime.  The collection has two different lines of tiles, handmade and inspired by two feather patterns.

The two collections can be both in ceramic with handmade decoration and in Limoges porcelain dyed in the clay.The possible patterns in the walls with these mosaic tiles are endless and generate fascinating ambience, crowded with natural geometries like those of feathers that draw graphic forms and unexpected lines thanks to their decoration.

Rose by Botteganove

The collection Rose is a homage by the designer Cristina Celestino to the town of Nove and to the hands of the women in the district who have been modelling the small flowers decorating the artistic pottery of the place for years. We apply roses in different dimensions to the traditional mosaic square tesserae. The flowers are modelled raw clay and then immersed in colour: small seductive and evocative wonders in ceramic. The selected colours range from smooth pastel to velvety hues. The application of the roses as three-dimensional objects highlights the solid vibration game created by the slight shades on the regular surface of the mosaic. The complete freedom in the arrangement of the flowers makes the tiling extremely apt to meet the customer’s needs.

Flora by Botteganove

A collection designed in refractory clays, in which the culture of researched imperfection and the handcrafted work lead to the uniqueness of the product. Chiara Andreatti has created a project for BottegaNove making  a clear reference to the primordial world. She has used raw materials like clay and sand for a natural-looking coating and a surface finish that require manual application of colourful glazes and crystallines to get unprecedented chromatic effects. The red thread of the new collection  by Chiara Andreatti for BottegaNove is Nature seen in macro. It is a stylised nature, rich in meanings. Details of leaves, veins and hues are reinterpreted, drawn and impressed into the material in order to breathe new life into  a handmade coating with no equivalent anywhere else.

Micromosaic- Botteganove Studio

The micromosaic is one of the most ancient and elaborated techniques in jewellery craftsmanship, which had its apex in the 18th century and particularly in Rome where it was used to create luxurious souvenirs, apart from jewels, with themes with neoclassical appearance. The micromosaic effect on the mosaic tiles of BottegaNove is obtained by using a covering glaze called “craquelé”, literally “crackled”. Historically used in Nove to obtain particular aesthetic effects, it is, in fact, the outcome of a technical mistake: you can get it by using a glaze with a so-called coefficient of expansion, which is different from the one of the clay and therefore creates surface tensions able to generate the web effect on the surface. The right dosing during the spraying with the airbrush and the precise firing temperature are the only ways to obtain a perfect “crackle”. The following step is the application of precious colourful lustres with another firing in order to melt them with the glaze. The outcome is a Micromosaic with an extraordinary range ton sur ton which you can see by looking the modules at a short distance. Our colour range broadens from pastel to precious hues made in pure gold and silver. The collection is presented in square tiles with a micro-pattern that is different in each tile thus making it a “unique micromosaic”.

Diamantino by Botteganove

The basic tile of this mosaic pattern is a cultured object full of quotations. A lengthened diamond, three-dimensionally modelled, which immediately reminds us of ceramic tiling but also of the graphics by Gio Ponti. A mosaic speaking a Mediterranean and Italian language, a Harlequin’s language with his patched Venetian Carnival costume and the three-dimensionality of kinetic art. The walls become then the loom for a tiling that gives them solid vibrations through light, shadow and colour waves. The facets of the diamond in its four dimensions are apt to diverse decorations and colours. The laying gives you further possibilities: beyond the classical harlequin-styled composition, you can also have a more original angular arrangement of the tiles.
