Embraced geometries and optical irreverence, exotic allure and oblique dynamism: Manuel Barbieri designed Scandola Marmi band-new flooring collections reinterpreting marble with a less statuary yet refined attitude.
Italian Designer Manuel Barbieri art director at Scandola Marmi gave shaped to an innovative collection of floor and wall coverings for the Verona based company. Profile flooring comes in hexagon tiles composed by two black and white embracing geometries that can be assembled in countless patterns. Boomerang is an irreverent flooring design inspired by Milan historic herringbone patterned floors. By combining different marble colors and textures, the collection features an extremely modern design as well as a quite psychedelic, optical look. With the Marrakech collection, Barbieri fell victim of the Moroccoan city’s exotic allure and created a collection that emphasizes shapes and colors. Marrakech features tiles made with six different marbles that come in warm and cool tones. Reinterpretating classic parquet floor with marble matter, Industry makes use of three different lengths, a particular cut and contrasting colours to create oblique and dynamic geometries. The rectangular strip is beveled at 45 degrees, a simple gesture that makes the Industry collection stylish and ideal for multiple uses. Verona based Scandola Marmi has been operating for over 50 years in the marble-processing sector both in Italy and abroad. While maintaining its imprint as a family-run business and its focus on artisanal production, the company has expanded its organization with a substantial new facility, state-of-the-art equipment and research on new processing methods… All while offering services and staying competitive in the marketplace. www.scandolamarmi.it Photos: courtesy of Scandola Marmi.
