Product description

“Kasai, "fire", is inspired by Shou Sugi Ban or Yakisugi, the traditional Japanese artisanal technique that works through burning wood, usually cedar, carbonising it in order to protect and conserve it. The collection pays homage to Japanese design culture, expressing in porcelain stoneware the same visual and tactile characteristics as achieved on the slats: refined and elegant, celebrating the convergence of different worlds, bringing together tradition and innovation. Kasai is available in the 25x150 size in the shades of Carta (Paper), Fumo (Smoke) and Notte (Night).

The collection features decorations that reflect the imagination of the Rising Sun: Sakura cherry blossoms, Koi carp, Take bamboo, Kanji ideographs, a Samurai abstract composition that includes multiple elements. In addition to these, the particular decoration Kintsugi made using the "third fire" ceramic technique is comprised of a composition of three tiles having a golden "crack", recalling the method that consists in the use of valuable materials to repair ceramic objects.”
