This series is the result of a collaboration project between Inalco and architecture studio Bunch S.L., directed by the architect Sara de la Mata.
Handcraft symbolizes the origin of textures and the importance of careful craftsmanship.
The result of a collaborative initiative between Inalco and Bunch Architects’ Studio, headed by architect Sara de la Mata, the series is inspired by terracotta’s warm texture, the temperature of man’s handprint on terracotta and rudimentary means of creation. Handcraft is based on new research into the very essence of materials and the way in which they used to be worked in the past. As a material, terracotta is a traditional form of tactile expression now integrated into the modern world’s technological processes.
A porcelain tile series with a standard thickness, Handcraft comes in a choice of colours: Blanco, Gris and Negro. It comes with three complementary décors - Handcraft Deco, the Deco Gris version and Deco Rubik– that take us back to a still recent past, recapturing the beauty of encaustic cement floors and bringing them forward into the future with new innovative patterns. The collection also comes in a natural finishing in a standard thickness.
