Not just floors: Cotto d'Este and the architectural space

Architectural spaces, like sculptures, are three-dimensional. In both cases, in order to observe the work in its entirety, the observer has to change position a number of times.

As it is impossible to see the whole of a building simultaneously, including all of the interior and exterior, we rely on our memory to “reconstruct” a complete image using the different perspectives we have recorded.

Consequently, the interaction between inside and outside and between two- and three-dimensional surfaces becomes the key to understanding the entire structure.

This is where the possibilities of using ceramic material both for interiors and exteriors of the building, for claddings and flat surfaces and on volumes, makes it particularly suitable for a wide range of design purposes.

On the other hand, the different finishes and colours also permit designs with strong contrasts or with tone-in-tone shades. The marble effect, for example, can be boldly combined with oxidized metal finishes, or - in a more classic style - with neutral surfaces and black and white backgrounds.

In the discussion concerning architectural design, therefore, the role of surfaces is a crucial element, playing a decisive role in how the observer perceives the whole and the component parts.

The result is a special bond between Cotto d'Este and the world of design, positive interaction where the innovation of one corresponds to the evolution in the modus operandi of the other.
