Mosaics history from Appiani

History

Appiani mosaics has actively promoted its products on the Italian and international markets since it was first founded in Treviso in 1873. After initially focusing on the production of friezes, pan tiles and bricks, widely acknowledged for their high standards of quality in Italy and abroad, it turned to the production of pressed powdered clay tiles at the turn of the 20th century and created new systems for processing and firing materials.

Its founder Graziano Appiani started production of the first coloured ceramic tiles in 1910 and built “Eden village” to provide housing for his workers in a village that had its own restaurant, cinema and theatre: the first example of a forward thinking style of business. Throughout the period of fascism in the Twenties, the company worked to deliver orders for floor tiles for barracks, hangars, hospitals and railway stations.

After the end of the war, it started to produce the “red stoneware” that the company became famous for during the period of reconstruction and the years of the economic boom. In 1960, the Appiani family embarked upon a policy of modernisation and started to work on projects with designers such as Giò Ponti and Pompeo Pianezzola. It completed the building of an innovative production plant the following decade to make glazed porcelain stoneware using exclusive “monopressocottura” technology – single pressing and firing. The company was taken over by the Bardelli family in the Nineties, a well-known name in the industry, who decided to focus on reinstating tradition and heritage by developing the production of ceramic mosaics. Its manufacturing plant was completely updated in 2000 with the introduction of the latest automated systems and complete computerisation.

Iconic, robust, flexible, timeless. Denim takes jeans out of context, in a surprising new form of expression. Subliming and updating the unique properties that have always made jeans a universal icon of style. The material is impressed with an innovative new finish suitable for floors and walls.

The essence of the yarn used to make jeans is represented in three patterns – Streaked/Striato, Wavy/Ondulato, Ruled/Sfilato – each developed in two different variants, with different patterns and colours. What changes is the inclinations, the relationship between warp and weft, the regularity of the stripes and weaves.

Collection Decors: Metrica

Metrica defines space with simple shapes and broken fragments capturing the essence of ever-changing geometry.

Metrica

It is apparently the periodic recurrence and regular, harmonious flow of geometric elements that dictates the rhythm of Metrica. But in actual fact, modulation is subtle, intermittent, and unforeseeable: the linearity of the geometry is interrupted and motion is added with beats and cadences of light and colour. The alternation of accents is guided by a scheme which generates and defines new compositions.

The 4 decorations of Metrica, available in 4 colour variants, take their simple, explicit names – Cerchi, Incroci, Trattini, Parallele – from the geometries naturally created by juxtaposing multiple modules. If the Cerchi modules are set side by side, we obtain a circumference; grids and intersections are generated by the Incrocimodule; while the Trattini and Parallele modules form the motion of straight and parallel lines and angles.

Sogni di Cristallo

Murano’s Art Glass Master

Sogni di Cristallo was born with the intention of unifying tradition and technology and exporting Venetian artisanal tradition all over the world

The history and tradition of murano’s glass

For centuries the handcrafting of glass has been an important economic reality for the city of Venice. The oldest document found related to the art of glass making dates back to 982. It describes a donation of glass and after the discovery of this

document, the 100th anniversary of glass blowing was celebrated in Venice in 1982. Many documents from the end of the 1200’s testify the foundation of glass factories along the so-called Rio dei Vetrai a Murano, where nowadays you can find the oldest glass laboratories. 
Starting in the year 1450, thanks to the intuitions and genius of Angelo Barovier, a member of an ancient

Murano family, there was an evolution in glass working techniques that would develop in the following two centuries. These changes brought about elevated creations and an incomparable purity in the glass. In the XVI century, Murano’s glass saw its brightest age: the techniques were perfected and the materials were fully developed thanks to the experiences of the fifteenth century.

Sogni di Cristallo for the new Grand Ryad Hotel Mogador in Casablanca

From then on, the glass masters dedicated themselves to perfecting the shape and the form. Blown glass became incredibly thin and pure, the shapes more essential and light. It was made to enrich the surfaces of European nobility. In those days there was also the presence of industrial espionage between the glass factories. Glass makers attempted to steal the secret techniques of the best producers in Murano.

The Venetian Republic acknowledged the artistic talents of those masters who introduced innovative methods in glass making. They also insisted on protecting their secrets, such as the invention of the techniques filigrana a ritortoli and the filigrana a reticello. These assigned “privileges” lasted for only a certain amount of time before the methods were used by all of the factories on the island.

The government also tried to limit the migration of the glass masters and their knowledge: in 1605 the Golden Book was written listing the names of noble families on the island of Murano, also known as the Glass Nobility.

In the 20th century, Murano’s masters followed contemporary artistic movements, dedicating themselves to a sophisticated craft and experimentation in their own art. They respected the millenary tradition that allows Murano glass to be a unique product, prestigious and incomparable.

The Work Process

Venetian glass is made out from silica, a particular sand that becomes glass only after a certain chemical reaction. Adding sodium lowers the temperature of this important reaction. The potassium, an alternative to sodium and typical substance from Nordic countries, generates a bright glass that is good for grinding and engraving (like the English lead glass), but not for the complex work, typical in the Venetian tradition. The first mixing of materials takes place at night, and this process lasts the entire evening.

Sogni Di Cristallo for Jamie’s Italian Restaurants, Rotterdam, Netherlands.

To the two principle materials, a stabilizer (similar to calcium carbonate) is added, and eventually the color and opaque formula. The reverberation oven melts the materials at a temperature of approximately 1400 °C, and in the morning the glass workers find the melted materials ready to be modelled. The glass mix remains workable until it reaches a temperature of 500 °C. Those who work on the glass are collectively called la piazza, a group composed of helpers who are coordinated by the glass master.

The product is worked on by expert grinders that then proceed with the smoothing of the glass and other finishing touches. The engraving process is completed in independent laboratories by very highly specialized decorators. If the final decoration requires color, the object is painted in another specific laboratory.

Techniques

Hand Blown glass

The glass blowing technique was discovered in the First century B.C on the oriental shores of the Mediterranean Sea. This endures as the most important event in glass history. Particularly in Venice, hand glass blowing remains a privileged technique that produces high quality products.

Murano’s masters have developed, starting in the Medieval Ages, an extraordinary ability to model and have invented new ways of making better shapes, always more and more sophisticated. Of all the techniques the most important is the filigree: in its both ways “retortoli” or “reticello”, which were born in the XVI Century, they recreate the effects of a net inside the glass itself.

Carving

This is used more often with translucent or slightly colored crystals in two ways: with a point of a diamond or wheel carving (realized with a small rotating metal wheel and provides a deeper cut than the diamond process).

Sogni di Cristallo: Delfi dei Dogi Venetian Chandeliers

Murrina

This ancient technique, even older than the glass blowing, was rediscovered in the XIX century after almost two thousand years of not being used. Using a pre determined drawing, single colored tiles or sections of colored glass sticks are combined in the oven. This process allows the worker to obtain really brightly colored glass.

Sogni di Cristallo: Dafne Tavolo The Levant Collection

Crystal work

Since the Medieval Ages glassware has been a typical product of Murano. Today, well known designers collaborate with factories to realize contemporary models.

Sogni di Cristallo: Van Gogh Poppies Artistic glass

Lamps

From Medieval Ages to the early XVIII century the so called cesendello was the most refined illumination system in houses and churches: it was a stretched out container, usually hung from the ceiling, filled with water and a layer of oil with a wick. A remarkable discovery in the XVIII century was the ciocca, a crystal lamp with arms that carried candle holders. This design included elements in blown glass and was decorated with colorful glass flowers and other pending elements: this model of a lamp is still highly produced today.

Sogni di Cristallo: Atena Lampshades

Sculpture

The difficulties in the techniques involved in modeling heavy masses of incandescent glass have been present for glass workers since the 1930’s. Today, sculptures occupy a fundamental position in the production of Murano’s glass.

Sogni di Cristallo: Teti Modern design

Mirrors

In the last centuries, glass sheets were handmade in Murano (by opening a blown cylinder) and then were elaborated by the mirror shops in Venice. This tradition has been preserved and expert mirror masters use the finest decorative techniques to equal the quality of the original masterpieces.

Glass Pearls

The most simplified pears are called conterie, pearls that can be rounded or with edges, created by extending hot glass tubes from the oven for up to ten meters. The manual skills are exalted in a so-called lume, a glass stick softened by the fire of a flame that is spooled around a metal tube. In this way, the pearl can assume every form the master desires and is later decorated with colored glass.

HISTORY OF BAZZI

The history of Bazzi is the history of a family of artisans with the passion for elegant and exclusive furniture and the desire to spread it around the world. This history begins with a deep knowledge and understanding of a noble material such as wood and a master workmanship in working it, guided by the intelligence of the hands and the foresight of the heart. Bazzi truly love wood, and we have come to know all of its secrets.

Bazzi select the raw materials and patiently wait for years until their natural seasoning. Only then we can begin our work, helped by today’s technology as well as our most time-honored tools: our hands.

Over the years the “workshop” has grown, and has now turned into a “factory of ideas”, where we are able to design and manufacture custom furniture for the varying demands of today’s clients, who are more attentive and demanding than ever. In our archives we have more than 1.200 original drawings of furnishings and hundreds of projects that have created the history of our company.  We jealously guard more than 1.000 samples of models, which are all available to our customers and clients.

Bazzi were born as furniture makers over forty years ago and we will always be furniture makers. Our production relies upon a network of professionals such as architects, carvers, carpenters, upholsterers, decorators and many other artisans who work with us in order to create our furniture pieces.

All our employees believe in the company and know that their work is vital for the company growth. They are aware that the quality that we offer our customers around the world comes from their work, their motivation and the unique atmosphere that only a strong and cohesive team can guarantee.

Production Cycle 
Historical research

Our identity and style are defined as an artistic contamination of the most important and elegant styles of the past. Thorough historical research has led the company to support and believe in challenging projects that convey experiences and emotions. We interpret interior design as a way of mixing the elegance and style of the past with the exigencies and tastes of today.

Briefing, design, and creation.

Through all our history we have been constantly focusing on the design and creation of customized furnishings, where the customer can select not only sizes and finishing, but style, shape and design as well. We offer our project customer a precise work approach: after an initial briefing the concept of the Villa or the Apartment comes to life. Once approved, we move on to the working project and the drafting of detailed estimates that include inspections, the coordination work, the artistic direction, the installation and the final testing.

Bazzi: living in shanghai

From design to creation, with a single partner

We also produce furnishings starting from third party project design; our mastery as craftsmen makes sure that all the pieces of furniture that come out of our factory are “art that lives in time”, creations of cosy, refined, and elegant interiors, where you can recognize and express yourself as an individual, customized environments that mirror the lifestyle of those who live there. Thanks to years of experience, we carefully select the best wood from around the world, and patiently let it season three to five years. Wood, a noble material par excellence, once in our hands takes shape and becomes the artistic motif expressing the highest level of the art of furniture making.

Unparalleled finishes

We can realize exclusive finishes that are capable of giving the furniture a particular “antique flavor” that otherwise only time can give to things; this is possible thanks to special processes and unique workmanship, performed manually, which make the furniture both glamorous and elegant. Different finishes in gold and silver leaf may offer varying degree of antiquity, depending on the style of the furniture, but always make a difference.

The art of design

Most of our best selling items are now available for 3D renders. We can also prepare exclusive 3D renders for our customers, so that they can have a very clear and detailed idea of how their future home will look like. Everything you see in our render, from furniture to tapestry, from doors to lighting, from parquets to carpets, is purchasable directly from us.

Finishing flexibility

Flexibility is our strength. We think of it as an ability to figure out different interpretations of the same environment and to realize it according to the customer’s tastes and wishes.

Furniture

Noon Coffee Table : Bringing lightness and balance to a collection of rich, cohesive materials. Graphic in nature, the Noon Tables offer striking material combinations confined within an outer ring. The top is contained within half-milled legs creating a tension and lightness between the surfaces.

The Noon Tables are available in two sizes, 500mm DIA x 450mm high and 1000mm DIA x 350mm high. The top surfaces are available in a variety of finishes including timber veneer, marble, laminate and mirror framed all with a 3mm MS solid edge. The table frame is available in black textured or white powder-coat with alternate colours available upon request. The table series is also available in the Noon Tri-Cut finish of marble, black mirror and walnut. The Tri-Cut configuration is referenced throughout the Noon Collection, showcasing different finishes seamlessly in unity. Made in Melbourne.

Noon Lounge Residential Lounge : Noon is a modular collection of upholstered products which softly arc at the edges. Noon’s arm allows the cushion to flow over the arc, creating an extra level of comfort and softness to the product. There is a tension created between the stitching detail on the inner and outer surface which run in parallel, framing and outlining the product.

The composition of materials balanced with an understated aesthetic creates a harmony within the elements of the Noon Collection. The collection is designed specifically for residential spaces with a commercial cross over and features the modular lounges, armchair, two coffee tables, an accompanying mirror and a rug in three colour ways. Made in Melbourne.

Lighting

Glaze Pendant Light : Glaze is a stoneware pendant light. The understated form of the shade highlights the beauty of its glazed surface. Each shade is hand crafted giving the product a shared yet unique appearance.

The product is available in a range of standard and metallic glazes with custom glazing available on request. Glaze comes with a black ceiling canopy to suit the hanging and a standard 2m of black cloth cable. The product comes standard with a dimmable 9W LED globe. Made in Melbourne.

Hemera Desk Lamp : Just like the brutalist architecture from 60 years ago that it references, the Hemera desk lamp is powerful in its simplicity of form.

Designed for the New Volumes™ collection, the two solid circular volumes intersect with no overtly visible light source, creating a striking desktop monolith and a lighting device of refined functionality.

Interior

The Ross Gardam™ Studio brings 15 years experience in bespoke interior design dovetailed with a unique understanding of furniture and lighting. We work on a select number of projects a year and collaborate with like minded clients who share our passion for original object and space design.

Service

The studio is underpinned by an innovative use of materials and manufacturing processes cumulating in spaces built for purpose. The service offers complete design, documentation and implementation phases. Clients are able to access the existing furniture and lighting collections along with bespoke designed pieces. The studio collaborates with a number of manufacturers and suppliers on-hand to ensure each space is built to the highest level.

Delivery

Typically we explore a wide and diverse range of ideas, scenarios and systems, improving on what has been before. The value of this process ensures nothing is overlooked in the design phase, before culminating in delivery of an exceptional space. Ross Gardam™ provide strategy, visualisation, technical documentation, CAD/CAM modeling and detailing that allows a clear path to production. We collaborate with a range of manufacturers and industry specialists to stream-line the delivery process. Our outcomes are both strategically and ethically considered, meeting time-line and budget constraints.
