tom dixon designs for bisazza

we have already featured the work of tom dixon as well as the work of italian tile company bisazza. this time it is their coopration we had an eye on…

british designer tom dixon hasdeveloped a collection of tiles for italian brand bisazza, featuring graphic and trompe-l’oeil patterns based on architectural features including bricks and pebble-dash walls.

dixon based his designs on colours and textures found across london’s built environment, which he translated into simplified graphic patterns applied to the surfaces of the cement tiles.

the broke tiles feature a design that resembles the surfaces of cracked paving slabs, while the void and wall designs recall traditional brickwork.

skew, flip and block feature patterns that resemble three-dimensional representations of basic building blocks.

vents, ducts and pipes are referenced in a series of two-toned linear patterns, while the grit design recalls pebbledash walls and other aggregate surfaces.

dixon’s designs were developed to mark the tenth anniversary of bisazza’s london showroom and join the firm’s 2016 portfolio, which includes a mosaic collection by studio job that features patterns depicting bones and animal skeletons.
