To celebrate the 10th anniversary of their London Showroom and the launch of their debut Cementile collection by Tom Dixon, Bisazza hosted a thought-provoking talk with Tom Dixon and Suzanne Trocmé on '10 years of design'. Inspired by London’s red clay bricks, cracked pavements and pebble dash walls, the new Bisazza Cementiles collection provided a decorative backdrop for the evening’s event.
Surrounded by Bisazza’s stunning range of mosaics and Cementiles, Tom Dixon and Suzanne Trocmé took centre stage on the lower level of the showroom to discuss the last 10 years of design and the heritage of Bisazza, what led Tom and Bisazza to work together and his inspiration behind the new collection.
Tom Dixon shared an insightful account of working with Bisazza including how they had been waiting for the right moment to collaborate for some time. The reason why now felt so right was due to the introduction of Bisazza’s Cementile range in 2015 as it was a medium that Tom felt would suit his style well. Tom spoke on the intricacies of the Cementile process saying, “Tiling is an amazing science which brings together geometry and mathematics” and explained how this works so well as a vehicle for his designs. Tom also elucidated how London’s architectural landmarks (with a little help from Scalextric) have inspired his designs.
