Ceramics has always been present throughout the history of mankind, but its functionality and advantages are made really tangible with the growth of large cities at the end of the 19th century. The need to facilitate the mobility of their population and make the growing traffic move more freely resulted in the first commuter trains. Hardness, cleanliness, brightness, and decorative potential were characteristics that made ceramics the perfect material for these public spaces. These advantages, coupled with its aesthetic beauty, meant that the metro stations in the world’s large cities adapted ceramics to these environments, and that later it would become part of the kitchens and bathrooms in the homes of the inhabitants of these cities. New York was the pioneer; Paris, London, and Madrid followed.
With the Manhattan series, we have managed to recreate these spaces, which are unalterable to the passage of time, and which are representative of the most traditional ceramics with a well-defined personality and character.
The Manhattan series achieves atmospheres and spaces of the past, but with the most modern functionality and designs. Adaptable to any project, it confers personality to any imaginable room: bathrooms, kitchens, coffee shops, or the facade of any building.
Black and white, beveled and smooth, matte, gloss, and marble are the hallmarks of the Manhattan series, which, together with materials such as wood, steel, brick, or cement, make up the ideal setting for any type of imaginable ambiance: retro, contemporary, or the most avant-garde of spaces.
