Gabbianelli new tile collections- Note di colore, TRACCIA.

Gabbianelli has been making ceramic tiles for over 60 years, creating products whose superlative originality and style have made them a success all over the world. It all started in a simple atelier where architects and designers came together with the founder of the company to try out their ideas and designs on a ceramic medium. These were the years the building boom reached its peak: the main thing was to build fast and to build a lot. Gabbianelli had the intuition that there was not just the question of production volume, there was also the product’s aesthetics to consider, paving the way for a manufacturing method that would become widespread throughout the industry in the decades to come. The factory’s location at Milan and its close contacts with the growing design “industry” were unquestionably decisive factors in Gabbianelli’s recipe for success: how to take tiles from being a mere wall covering known for its simplicity and practicality, to a product used by interior designers. This is how ceramic tiles became a surface used in designer projects. The traditional decorative patterns of the old style of ceramics were abandoned in favour of original and contemporary designs, interpreting the new concept of the home. These experiences led to products that have become outand- out international success stories and have contributed to the history of design in ceramics: “Serie Elementare” (1968), “Traccia” (1979: the first three-dimensional pattern), the elegant reworking of florals by Carolyn Quartermaine with her “Roses” and “Stanza dei fiori” (2001/02), and coloured textures created by using various techniques of application and which are still a distinctive element featuring in the company’s catalogue today. Today, the scope of the company still stretches from industrial manufacturing with the production of its range of plain colours, to hand-crafted work in the laboratory, where the skills of artists and experts are combined to make unique pieces or series of elegant decorations. After becoming part of Altaeco group, Gabbianelli can now count on a modern industrial system using the latest technology, safeguarding the same supreme levels of quality of its products. The company has worked with many designers over the years, including:

Ezio Didone “Zig Zag” – Raul Dufy “Willow” – Annabelle d’Huart “Wien”, “Ring”, “Quadrat” – Sergio Calatroni “Wave”, “Village”, “Piedigrotta” – “Lapis”, “Intuizione” – Renato Toso “Vibration”, “Messico” – Bruno Munari “Tuttotondo Tuttoquadro” – Enzo Mari “Serie Elementare”, “Traccia”, “Trama e Colonna” – Italo Lupi “Stellina” – De Pas D’Urbino “Segni” – David Palterer “Punto” – Maria Belgioioso “Bolli e quadri” – Pace Gritti Morlacchi “Grandecoro bosco” – Alfonso Pizzo Greco “Ameba” – Sergio Asti “Farfalla” – Anna Maglienti “Dama”, “Armonia” – Tullio Pericoli “Block notes”, “Espresso”, “Fantasia” – Julia Binfield “Vasi e Fiori”, “Caffelatte” – “Le città del mondo” – Carolyn Quartermaine “Roses”, “Stanza dei fiori” – Mario Piazza XY “Astratto” – Wouter Dolk “Cornici” – Piero Crida “Hibiscus”

Note di colore 20×60

A collection of tiles in 14 different plain colours in the new size 20×60 cm, adding to Gabbianelli’s wide product range Note di Colore. The distinctive features of the product are: the special glazing process and the shiny drip effect crystalline surface, which enhances the brilliance and depth of colour. The new rectangular size 20×60 cm, refined and elegant, further enhances the exciting effect of the material and the purity of its shapes. A matching listel tile measuring 7,5×60 cm is also available.



“…the ten-year collaboration with Enzo Mari marked some essential stages in the development of the production of Gabbianelli…” This is what our catalogue stated a few years ago, and to confirm the respect and passion of Gabbianelli for the work of Enzo Mari, we now proudly present the revised version of TRACCIA, in the size 13×26 cm in 13 different glossy colours plus one with a satin finish. With its rigid markings, achieved thanks to the use of a structured support, and its three-dimensional form, TRACCIA creates a modern, dynamic light and shade effect.

Ceramiche Refin presents Circus collection: the Italian concept of luxury tiles .

Ceramiche Refin presents its brand-new collection Circus, with its innovative 3D texture, in keeping with cutting-edge interior design trends.
Circus has many defining characteristics, all which, once again, underline the strong attention to research, which has always been synonymous with Ceramiche Refin: the texture of the tile has circles in relief which create a dynamic effect on the four colours of the backdrop: white, beige, purple and black; the flamboyant baroque decors, enriched with glossy and matt glazes recall the damask patterns, made precious thanks to the use of glass grits and golden powders.
The hand-decorated frame containing pure gold glazes completes the collection, enhancing its luxury and prestige.
