Mediterranean Collection by Lapicida
The judges were impressed by the three ranges of patterned and plain tiles that make up Lapicida’s new Mediterranean Collection. Paying homage to traditional ceramic designs, each tile is handmade using a centuries-old technique, perfectly capturing the texture and imperfections of glazed terracotta.
“IT’S A FRESH COLLECTION THAT IS VERY USABLE AND DECORATIVE.”
Featuring a mix of patterned and plain tiles, the curation includes three coordinating ranges: Ibiza, Mallorca and Balearics. Each chosen for their exceptional quality, distinctive design and complementary colourways.
Mallorca comprises of five handmade tile designs – Inca, Palma, Sineu, Soller and Valledemossa – each available in two complementary colourways: sand and sky, in a 150 x 150 x 10mm tile size.
Ibiza offers four distinct handmade tile designs – Daltvilla, San Carlos, Sant Rafael and Vedra – which are suitable for interior walls. Each is available in one colourway, in a 152 x 152 x 12mm tile format.
Balearic features handmade tiles which have been glazed either on the front or reverse side of the surface making for a simple yet effective design. Balearic White has a smooth glazed surface whilst Balearic White Rustic has a textured finish. Both are available in a 152 x 152 x 10mm format. Balearic White Mixed includes a combination of front and reverse glazed tiles in a 100 x 100 x 10mm format.
“THE DEEP GLAZE CREATES A WONDERFUL TEXTURE.”
The entire Lapicida team is incredibly excited to receive this award from Homes & Gardens. The wonderful texture and imperfections of the glaze of the tiles in the Mediterranean Collection have received much admiration. The curation has been incredibly popular since its launch and we are extremely honoured to receive the “Best Hard Surface” Award in such a highly competitive category.
