TONALITE.STUDIO: passion opens to innovation
A brand with exclusive lines born from the cooperation between architects and designers.
Tonalite, thanks to its artisanal production and to its vocation to research and development of new products and solutions, is the ideal partner for architects and designers wanting to create exclusive ceramic floor - and wall - coverings, turning their ideas into a reality.
The research into shapes, lines, geometry belongs to the history of Tonalite Spa as to that of the architectural firm ARX by Paolo Di Nardo. In this encounter between two creative realities, one aimed towards the conceptualization and design of a project, the other to the pursuit of aesthetic taste through ceramics, thanks to the knowledge of the technological execution, a common project was created: the product line GEOMETRIA.
The first Series of the product Line Geometria is "Cerchio" (Circle)
It could only be the circle the first geometric figure of the product line Geometria, because it represents, more than any other geometric figure related to it, the perfection as the “origin” of things. But Circle, seen as “zero”, as the start number, it is also the symbol of the whole, the empty, the universe, the start of a Series. Compared to the other figures, this perfect shape, for symbolism and meaning, has the property to replicate itself without losing its role as the individual and recognizable element, thanks also to the use of color. This dual characteristic of being a free standing and part of a “whole”, allows to decline languages and uses of the ceramic coating with multiple compositional expressiveness. The Tonalite’s circle becomes flexible to any use or purpose of decoration.
The second product line of the product Line Geometria is “Quadrato” (Square)
This product immediately follows the “Circle” series: it represents the natural geometrical and symbolic evolution of this prime shape. The “Square” appears as a new chapter in the Tonalite production line, investigating the “simplicity” of this form as a complex geometrical system. The “Square” is strictly related and connected to the “Circle” since it ideally represents the divine perfection, the stabilized world, the uniqueness. This two shapes constantly recall one another: the “Square“ is a metaphor of “Space”, while the “Circle” of “Time”. The essentiality of this figure allows this product to be very flexible but, at the same time, highly recognizable: this line allows to obtain a product that is highly replicable without losing sight of the single element and, thanks to the use of color, it is also possible to realize various solutions, each one with its own unique feature.
