PICO by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
This collection is dedicated to pure matter: powder and compressed minerals, which are the very essence of ceramic tiles.
Pico comes in three different base colours made of special mixtures that give the surfaces an effect of surprising depth and sensuality when touched. They are then embellished in delicate tones with natural finishing. During development of this collection, the focus was on defining a structure that combined regularity with irregularity. The result was the two types of relief surface: Down with sunken dots and Up with raised dots. Two colours, red and blue, were chosen to add a dynamic touch, either as dots on the base or as a base colour. The chromatic play underlines the relief effect, creating delicate shadows and giving a colder or warmer feel to the tiles. The collection is suitable for public spaces, such as airports and restaurants, as well as domestic internal or external environments.
