Volumes & Stratigraphies

Volumes & Stratigraphies Collection

At Milan Design Week the story told by Matteo Brioni’s , through the 14 clays from the 2018 collection, is one of constant research for different bespoke applications that can be seen in the course of a journey in which interior decoration meets its highest expression. Following his substantial success with natural clay at the 2017 edition, Matteo Brioni – an architect engaged in continuous research for different uses of this eco-friendly material – returns to Milan Design Week.

Careful research and selection of earths by Matteo Brioni will materialize during Milan Design Week 2018, taking on the form of The Tower of Earths and Stratigraphies, designed by Studio Irvine. This piece represents 14 different types of clay developed over 14 boxes, each containing a different solid form and 14 Stratigraphies visualizing the natural material for excellence: natural clay. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional volumes are employed to describe Brioni’s finishes that are to be touched and moved, trying different color combinations and effects.

Two new shades for the 2018 – 2019 collection on the theme of pink, with different origins and nuances: the Cipra surface was chosen from Cagliari earths while Cammeo was selected from quarries in Piedmont.
