CEDIT’s Archeologie collection has been designed in collaboration with Italian painter Franco Guerzoni. The artist uses large ceramic surfaces as a medium for his pictorial language that is inspired by the idea that “a wall is like a book to be opened”. Disused locations, industrial spaces, and archaic and ruined dwellings re-emerge from the painted surface.

Combining different textures on tiles provides new ideas that have come from the long running concrete-effect trend that still has reserves of energy. International correspondent, Joe Simpson writes “Brutalist architecture, as well as softer forms of concrete, continue to inspire and energise tile designers, in everything from XXL panels seeking out fresh opportunities in the countertop and cladding market, through to smaller format tiles for both commercial and domestic applications.”
