BRAND Marazzi
DESIGNER Project office

The Crogiolo collection represents for Marazzi unique levels of quality and aesthetics, as well as the company's desire to put human workmanship, care and attention typical of handmade pieces at the center. Crogiolo comes from the name of the industrial building where Marazzi was born, in the 1930s, and the place where, in the 1980s, the homonymous research and experimentation center was founded: here designers, architects, artists and photographers were asked to interpret ceramics in full freedom. A season that led to the creations of Roger Capron, Amleto Dalla Costa, Original Designers, Saruka Nagasawa and Robert Gligorov, and to the shots of Luigi Ghirri, Cuchi White and Charles Traub. Among Crogiolo's creations, inspired by the art of combining technology and craftsmanship, roots and innovation, Lume is the one that focuses on research in the field of glazes and color, returning a porcelain stoneware collection that is a tribute to ultra-gloss. The dense enamelling and the small defects, the smudges, the irregularities, the pitting and the variations of shades and patterns make each piece unique and the wall compositions always different. The original size, 6x24 cm, with exceptionally straight edges allows installation without joints but with a “hand-made” flavor. Lume is available in twelve colors: the brand new Off White, Turquoise, Forest, China, Beige, Pink and the more traditional White, Green, Blue, Black, Musk and Greige. The collection is ideal for wall cladding in both residential and contract projects. Floor installation is only suitable for private homes with little traffic.
