TRANSITION for Mirage®
Porcelain stoneware tile collection
Red Dot Product Design Award 2016
Research, experimentation, design.
A journey of sensations, memories and experiences, called transition.
Transition is a collection born from the collaboration of Lanzavecchia + Wai with Mirage, an international business working and travelling between Italy and Singapore: a meeting and a creative path linked to the concept of landscape, change, real and metaphorical transition from one place to another, a journey that becomes experience.
No reference or imitation: Transition goes beyond the canons of imitation, defining a new, timeless and contemporary nature of porcelain stoneware whose roots lie in italian culture and tradition.
Transition refers to the world of italian-made handicrafts: an ancient skill, known and handed down through time, blends with the technology of industrial production. Naturally irregular, the texture is enriched with overlaid colours, creating the ideal photograph of a journey.
An itinerary that crosses italy, collecting colours and shades and re-interpreting them in a contemporary key.
The colours of the landscape are interpreted and synthesised in neutral, natural nuances that give off a rare sensation of peace and lightness.
Delicate shades and soft colour passages become refined proposals for a contemporary lifestyle
