In September 2014, Bisazza, a popular brand for luxury glass tile mosaics, launched a new cement tile collection. Going parallel with the new trends of reviving traditional floor patterns and colors, they crafted several collections and collaborated with famous designers to come up with a spectacular collection. During iSaloni, they added to the collection a line designed by India Mahdavi. The original collection included designs by non other than Paola Navone , Jaime Hayon, & Carlo Da Bianco.
Handmade in Tunisia, where cement tiles have been made for generations, Bisazza runs its own production. “The colors are more refined and we worked on the texture of the tiles to make them softer than the traditional version,” Rossella tells us. “They are handmade so every tile is different from the next, which I think is a plus. It’s not like ceramics where all the tiles are exactly the same, this one has more life and the texture is fascinating because it’s not shiny it’s more silky to the touch.”
