Francesca Buonincontri’s project: Pytagoras
Example of laying simulation.
“The philosophy of the project refers to the history and culture of Italy: Pytagoras is inspired by the geometric designs of the traditional Neapolitan “riggiole”; however, with a leap in the scale, it produces many different textures. The drawing originates from a portion of a circle line and straight line. The minimalist design is complemented by a limited number of colours in order to highlight the essentiality of the tile in its multiple possible combinations. Randomly assembled and/or arranged in geometric, repetitive, diagonal, and rotated ways, the variations allow for countless different combinations of a dynamic and intentionally three-dimensional texture.”
