Hexagon. The shape that’s already a trend.

Monday 15 December 2014

Following the minimalist look and the large sizes, interior design trends are now shifting in the direction of decorative elements and composition patterns, combinations reminiscent of vintage style, created around the theme of memory, with the shapes and details of the past weaving a material fabric replete with recollections and historical allure.

At the forefront of this beguiling retro pattern is undoubtedly the hexagon, a format set once again to play a role in every room in the house.
Created in porcelain stoneware, the hexagonal tile is inspired by the cement tiles: polychrome floor tiles, rigorously different, once laid throughout the home, illustrating a new, enthusiastic craftsmanship wave able to provide a real alternative to serial production of an industrial type.

Similar creative liberties are now being taken once again in the home, with walls and floors becoming a blank canvas that makes it possible to create combinations and colourful mix&match effects able to blend perfectly in with interior design elements to engage in an original new dialogue. Ceramic material is the means through which it is possible to characterise and alter the architectural landscape, both residential and public. The hexagon is the language used, expressing a creative approach that brings a style rooted in the past back into the present.

With the Xgone project by Mirage, the serial repetition of modules opens the door to endless composition and colour options.
The personalisation of surfaces opens up a multitude of colour and shape options, thus stimulating the creative spirit of architects and designers.
To inject life into this original ceramic concept, Mirage has developed 5 different sizes, with a colour palette ranging from sage to pearl grey. The laying schemes – offering over 70 different solutions – allow for the creation of varied patterns, from regular compositions to more random, complex solutions.
