Ceramica Bardelli took part as a design partner in the Club Unseen project of the Studiopepe firm. On this occasion it gave a world première of Pittorica, the new collection of tiles created with the collaboration of Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto. Pittorica expresses the universe of colour through a very modern colour palette, available in multiple finishes and shapes, which can harmoniously communicate with each other to suggest new uses for colour in interior decorations.
The silky finishes of Pittorica enhance the collection’s domestic dimension, whereas the brilliant versions - characterised by patterned textures and surfaces - represent colour accents that can make every surface more precious with the materiality and depth of the glazing. The decorative properties of Pittorica are enhanced by the new rectified formats, which guarantee laying solutions with minimal joints that bring out the full, modern spirit of colour expressiveness. The innovative triangular formats that complete the collection guarantee original decorative capacities to characterise the surfaces and volumes of interiors.
Studiopepe is a design agency founded in Milan in 2006 by Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto. Studiopepe focuses on design and research with a multidisciplinary approach, offering creative consulting services. Studiopepe develops creative concepts for fashion and design brands, plans interiors for private and retail clients and designs product collections for both companies and art galleries, drawing on a stratified, eclectic design idiom that combines poetic vision with rigorous design. Art, installations, study of formal archetypes, experimentation with materials and dialogue among opposites are only a few of the themes developed by the studio. Studiopepe’s design projects are known for their bold iconographic identity based on experimentation, constant study of colours and materials and cross-contamination among different contemporary idioms to achieve a special result reflecting each client’s individuality. Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto, both designers with a background in fine art and design gained following university studies in Italy and abroad, are the creative directors of Studiopepe and coordinate a team of architects, interior designers, product designers and stylists. Together they come up with concepts and designs of great emotional power.
