When working on new projects we are always curious and willing to find new products that fit to our design proposals. Especially when it comes to basic elements like flooring, wall coverings and materials that simply create the base for all the rest like furniture, bathrooms, kitchens, rugs etc.
For one of our latest projects, a renovation of an ancient stone building in the old town of Grado, we were looking for cement tiles, often used in this kind of buildings in the past and were really surprised when it turned out that in a country like Italy they wouldn’t be easy to find (if not thinking of the all new stylish designs like of Mutina, Lea or classic ones like Cerasarda).
By wondering around in various architecture mags and by roaming the web we were even more surprised to find a couple from Sweden, Inga-Lill and PA Ovin who started their business Marrakech Design back in 2006. They discovered the beauty of cement tiles in earnest on their first trips to Morocco and fell in love with the country itself. They spent much time there working on adding new tiles to their collection by creating new patterns and color combinations. Various collaborations with designers like Stockholm based architects Claesson Koivisto Rune brought up fantastic new collections.
They received numerous international awards and want you to get inspired by their work here. Hope you like our catch of the week!
