The FOSSIL tile collection revisits the prehistorical imprints left by plants and animals in rock formations, designed as ornamental patterns destined for contemporary interiors.
The preliminary designs were particularly inspired by the signs left by the grooved shells of extinct ammonites.
The hand-drawn pattern gives it a unique appearance, similar to the imprints of primordial creatures impressed on the surface of the stone.
In our own imagination, each of us can see different figures in the subtle patterns.
The imprints break up and overlap just like the signs of time in archaeological digs.
Moving in different directions, the FOSSIL surface creates optical illusions of voids and other more densely patterned areas, producing a simple, natural and elegant atmosphere for indoor settings.
