Superfície-Marca / Ceramic tile

Superfície-Marca
Superfície-Marca

Being important elements of Brazilian’s architectonic identity, tiles are often underused, in spite being the most indicated wall covering method for humid climates. A project methodology has been developed in order to allow the construction of patterns using one single type of tile. Such modules relate visually with the ones surrounding each piece - regardless its position and rotation on the set – increasing the liberty with which each item can be arranged in relation to the whole structure, turning the ellaboration of the surface into a ludic practice, thus minimizing potential applicational errors and decreasing the possibility of waste.
