Wall Tile of the year
Futura is a collection that portrays a strong visual impact. It is the evolution of multiple concepts. The idea was inspired from the main protagonists of the artistic and architectural currents of the first half of the 20th century. This collection takes the main focus of inspiration from the strong contemporary dynamics of both Bauhaus and the French architect Pierre Chareau.
Maison De Verre
Pierre Chareau curated the spectacular Maison de Verre, in Paris around 1932. Designed with three primary traits of; Honesty of materials, transparency of forms and juxtaposition. 41zero42 Futura collection has taken inspiration from the traits of the architect. With the 4 ‘drops’ and ‘grid’ tiles which emulate the Maison de Verre facure.
The Bauhaus movement was part of the German art school in 1919-1933. The school unified arts, crafts and technology. The ‘Futura’ uses the bauhaus movement as a source of inspiration for both modernism and Avant-garde style.
The collection consists of four variants in colours; White, black, rose and blue. However the main base colour is the typical cement grey. In turn the collection generates 8 different styling patterns to compliment the plain tiles. Each pattern is printed with HD printing technology.
