Milan 2014 – Atelier Mendini for Refin

By EM on April 17, 2014 in Exhibitions, Industry Publicity, Launches

Architects and design maestros Alessandro and Francesco Mendini previewed a new tile collection for Refin during the Salone. The brothers participated in a Q&A session at the Refin Studio, Milan.

The FILO  collection is based on a traditional orthogonal grid, albeit redesigned, distorted and resized. On a neutral base, the thin line weaves and runs through to form a chequerboard, almost a three-dimensional optical illusion, producing a geometric yet  abstract effect that instantly recalls the OP Art movement.  The full FILO collection will be launched at Cersaie in September 2014.
