Words:

Strong geometries are in for tile manufacturer Domus, which last month launched Pittorica with Milan design atelier Studiopepe. It comprises 14 plain solid colours in three palettes with a silky matt finish; all available in three different shapes- triangle, square and brick-shaped. They’re suitable for both walls and floors and each tile is stamped with a textured canvas weave print, offering, the PR states ‘unique, subtle, almost imperceptible variation’.
