Some call Gaudí a great artist and others, a great technician…

Posted onMay 11, 2012

Born in 1852 in Reus (Camp de Tarragona) and son of a copper maker from Riudoms,

from childhood Gaudí was an attentive observer of nature and felt attracted to its forms,

colours and geometry. In 1868, he decided to study architecture in Barcelona,

in a college dominated by neo-classical and romantic trends. Thus,

his first architectural pruduction swung between a reinterpretation

of historical canons with oriental influence and the recovery of medieval events. 1

Despite his youth he received the first assignments from the ecclesiastic world and the bourgeoisie,

who would always be his main clients. Among these,

the Association of Devotees of Saint Joseph stands out as they commissioned him

with the Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Família (the cathedral of the modern Barcelona).

Of equal importance was the industrialist Eusebi Güell, the best client and essential patron,

who entrusted him with the construction of a palace, the curch for an industrial colony,

some pavilions for his summer residence and a city-garden.

After his death in 1926, he and his work entered a period of ostracismm until

the avant-gardist trends and the international movement recuperated

his figure while presenting him as an example of modernisation

and renewal of 20th century architecture.

Turquoise, red and orange offer all sorts of design possibilities and our customers are enjoying the option of dabbling in accent colours or adventurously creating tiled surfaces full of colour.

As far as size is concern, there appears to be no return to smaller tiles anywhere on the radar with larger tiles now very much in demand.

There are many variations of large tiles:800x800mm and 900x450mm tiles. They’re beautiful and very practical.

Because of the sheer size of these tiles, installation is quick and easy, maintenance is a breeze and they are versatile – oversized tiles present beautifully on floors or as feature walls – inside and out.

Ceramiche Refin presents Circus collection: the Italian concept of luxury tiles .

Ceramiche Refin presents its brand-new collection Circus, with its innovative 3D texture, in keeping with cutting-edge interior design trends.
Circus has many defining characteristics, all which, once again, underline the strong attention to research, which has always been synonymous with Ceramiche Refin: the texture of the tile has circles in relief which create a dynamic effect on the four colours of the backdrop: white, beige, purple and black; the flamboyant baroque decors, enriched with glossy and matt glazes recall the damask patterns, made precious thanks to the use of glass grits and golden powders.
The hand-decorated frame containing pure gold glazes completes the collection, enhancing its luxury and prestige.
