Sine of the times

The likes of 17th century Italian Baroque architect Borromini influenced Domus’ KAZA Concrete ‘Liquid Forms’ tiles; presumably more because it employs a complex range of carved and projecting curves in the architect’s signature style than the fact it was always in black and ended up committing suicide. Not at all; there’s 30 colours available here and not one inevitable but three possible finishes (matt, gloss or metallic), designed by architect Aybars Asci, founder of his ‘Efficiency Lab for Architecture’. Efficiency’s not a concept Borromini might have much of a grasp of; pervading melancholia had him walk away from a number of commissions.
