Variegated Cotto

Designer: Fornace Brioni

Dimensions: Custom

Variegated Cotto, designed by Fornace Brioni, is steeped in a sophisticated history of its own. Between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, it was one of the most popular materials for flooring in many churches and historic mansions in the Po Valley. Its unusual marbled surface is obtained by expert hand-crafting techniques. Clays with different compositions are first mixed individually, then together, creating a very graphic pattern of layers that is never the same. Once they have been fired, the different types of clay maintain and intensify their chromatic diversity to define a marbled effect that is very vivid and reminiscent of certain rocks and ornamental stones.
