Crono by Giugiaro Design
The third dimension of mosaic: an intuition that will surprise you
The meeting between Giugiaro Design and the world of mosaics is unprecedented: it is an exclusive
partnership with Mosaico+ that has created ideas, inspirations, new and fascinating perspectives. Colour, 3D,
high-end technology, and industrial design come together and are brought to life in Cronus. It is the epitome
of the beauty and originality of a Made in Italy project.
The Giugiaro point of viewis completely pure, free from the classic approachet to mosaic. And its first results are truly surprising. Brilliant surfaces, designed by starting at the basic element of a tile, breathe life intocompositions that are agile but at the same time moderate and refined. They are suitable for residential and public spaces, and express the energy of contemporary living.
These are three-dimensional mosaics made of sintered glass with sophisticated textures.
Light refraction gives off changing visual effects. The surfaces are tilted at a variety of angles depending on
each design and tile thickness. Colour density and geometry are the two features of the collection’s 2 basic
modules: Pulsar and Nova. The sleek and rounded design of Pulsar creates trajectories and soft weaves. The faceted geometry of Nova suggests different planes depending on the perspective. The common denominators of the two compositions are their 3D natures and their movement.
The sintered glass that is featured in the the collection designed by Giugiaro Design is highly resistant.
It is obtained by the grinding and compression of recycled glass, via a production system that has a low
environmental impact. Crono is available in 10 solid colours. The patterns and geometries are completely customizable in order to fulfill your creative needs.
Pulsar has 4 layouts. The tiles are arranged on a sheet according to different geometric patterns. The sintered-glass mosaic consists of 6 mm-thick tiles in the 21.5 x 10.5 mm format. They are mounted on a glass fibre net to from different-sized sheets depending on the layout: 312x312 mm / 323x323 mm / 316x327mm. The tiles have singular joints, making grouting unnecessary.
Nova is presented in 4 layouts. The tiles are arranged on a sheet according to different geometric patterns. The sintered-glass mosaic consists of 3.5/7 mm-thick tiles in the 38x38 mm format. They are mounted on paper to form 312x312 mm sheets. Tiles have an approximate 3 mm distancing. Grouting is necessary only in some layouts.
