Bouroullecs: Pico Collection


French design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have developed a series of textured tiles for Italian ceramics company Mutina

The Pico Collection comprises tiles with two surface reliefs: Down, with sunken dimples and Up with elevated dots. Composed of compressed sand and mixed minerals, the material’s slightly irregular texture and matte surface maintains the rawness of handmade cement and traditional earth floors. 

Available in neutral base shades of white, grey and sand, the tiles have additional blue or red dots applied to the hollows to enhance the relief of the surface.

Pico Collection will be presented during the Fair Cersaie – the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings – in Bologna, Italy from September 20 – 24, 2011.
