in the exhibition space in via Marco Polo 9, designed by Benedetta Tagliabue – EMBT, the history and products of Ceramiche Ragno, a tribute to the company's first brand, in a story that links past, present and future

“Ceramics is an ancient, natural material used in construction since the origins of humanity. We played with the theme of the spider and the web, rediscovering the history of the Ragno brand" explains Benedetta Tagliabue about the project for the first flagship store of Ceramiche Ragno, in the Porta Nuova in Milan, inaugurated in 2022.

The leitmotif of the spider's web is expressed right from the windows, where stoneware slabs alternate with decorated ceramics, in a balance given by the system of tie rods that recalls the geometries of the spider's web.

Entering the showroom, the exhibition itinerary is marked by large wooden structures whose shape derives from the succession of arches that act as displays for the ceramic and stoneware collections.

An exhibition method with which to best convey the multiplicity of ceramic materials available to designers and individuals, suggesting unprecedented combinations between the different surfaces in the range.

“The floor is the other decidedly interesting aspect of this project - Tagliabue explains again describing the project - a single large mosaic, a real polychrome work of art that it shows the super power of stoneware to make glossy and matt collections dialogue with each other from different material inspirations, from wood to marble, from concrete to stone, in an absolutely harmonious and natural way".

The mosaic theme returns, in one of the rooms overlooking the internal courtyard, with an unexpected homage to Giorgio De Chirico: the small and highly colored tiles from the Storie collection reinterpret one of the metaphysical paintings taken from the anthology The squares of Italy.

On display, among others, the new Glacé collection, a reinterpretation of artisan ceramics in a small format characterized by slight imperfections and irregular edges, the result of processes typical of the tradition of handmade ceramics.

Inedito is the first collection wood effect by Ragno made with the innovative 3D Ink and Sublime Sync technologies, capable of return a perfect joint between different 3D graphics and structures in each single piece.

The Richmond collection of floors and wall tiles is inspired by Limestone. 3D Ink technology, the latest digital evolution applied to porcelain stoneware, enhances its texture making each individual piece different.
