Mar, Mediterranean inspirations for new Sartoria’s collection
For this summer Sartoria, a Terratinta Group brand, is launching Mar, the new collection of ceramic wall tiles that holds in its name the origin of this evocative decorative project: Mar, or Maioliche Antiche di Recupero (Ancient Recovered Majolica), is a tribute to the majolica floor tiles of the Mediterranean tradition, a sort of “memory of the past” to be integrated into contemporary space.
The graphic line painted on the 20×20 tiles (with a 10 mm thickness) evokes places linked to the territory of southern Italy: from Molo Sant’Antonio, one of Bari’s symbolic places, to Villa Dragonetti, a 16th-century hunting lodge whose coffered ceiling decorations inspired the motif; from the famous Apulian “masserie”, once simple rural buildings, now historical monuments, to the watercolour blue that characterises Casino Tarricone.
Eight versions for eight locations with a single objective: to recreate a real experience rooted in the territory where this type of decoration originates, reproducing the aristocratic charm of a kaleidoscope of colours that are the reflection of an overwhelming, blooming, sun-kissed nature under a cloudless blue sky.
In fact, Mar‘s colour palette consists of warm tones, delicate decorations, simple geometries and elaborate embroidery, for floors and walls.
Finally, Mar is complementary to Biancone, Ceramica Magica’s collection inspired by the symbolic stone of Puglia, for a surprising contamination of styles.
