Design understood as research applied to ceramics; a choice of modernity; a 2D dimension that creates
highly characteristic domestic and non-domestic settings marked by a rigorous conception of space. The Ceramica Bardelli collections have been developed - with respect for tradition and a capacity for innovation - by many designers and artists, such as Giò Ponti, Piero Fornasetti, Marcel Wanders, Ronald Van Der Hilst, Ruben Toledo, Marco Ferreri, …
In its tiles, Ceramica Bardelli blends the best materials and Italian ceramic craftsmanship with artistic research and design.
Bardelli offers Italian-made designer products of exceptionally high quality, combining modern industrial processes with refined and painstaking traditional decoration techniques.
The Atelier collections, and many more besides, include a manual element in the production process. Numerous manual techniques are adopted to comply with the design required: from freehand drawings to stencils, and from pouncing to mixed techniques whenever painstaking attention to detail is required. Sometimes, over a dozen stages are necessary in order to decorate a single tile.
Only this combination of techniques and incredible know how allows artists' creations to be transferred faithfully onto tiles, making the Bardelli collections veritable examples of designer ceramics.
