THE TILE REPORT
Transform walls and floors with these large-scale tiles by Italian ceramics brand Cedit. The company has been quiet for almost two decades, having had its heyday in the mid-20th century when it collaborated with a host of esteemed design talent including Marco Zanuso, Ettore Sottsass and famous brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. But this year, two decades after its last collection launched, Cedit is releasing brand-new contemporary styles.
The new tile collection features six compositions designed by some of Italy’s hottest creatives. ‘Matrice’, pictured above, is a design by architecture duo Barbara Brondi & Marco Rainò: its subtle geometric pattern is reminiscent of a herringbone weave. Mounted on the wall, it creates instant artwork. Each of the six designs are made from hardwearing porcelain – so don’t be afraid of using them underfoot. From £90 per square metre, Florim (florim.it; ceditceramiche.it).
