Catavento / Wall tiles


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

The leading characteristic of the Catavento tiles is the movement of their lines and wavy volumes. They present a constant and light sinuousness that contrasts with the product's material, which is a plate of cement. The manufacture of all Solarium products is artisanal, in spite of being in series. The company has a chart of varied colors that allows the client to decide on the best option. Catavento was launched in March of 2011 and is already a champion in sales.

How to make a heavy material like cement visually light ? This challenge has a solution in the design of this very creative wall tile.
