Atlas Concorde presents Canone Inverso, the first collection designed by Piero Lissoni. The project is divided into four porcelain tile mosaics inspired by the world of cement and minimalist stones, in shades ranging from warm white to beige with traces of clay and dove gray, from grays in cooler and lighter tones to the darker anthracite and smoke.
This is how the designer summarizes the concept: “the four compositions of the Canone Inverso collection are the variants of a model, a scheme that is composed and recomposed to create a harmonious relationship that like in a musical score is formed by the assembly of different notes, or rather the forms that make it up”.
Canone Inverso reflects a combination of fluidity and materiality and interprets the design brief that Atlas Concorde had given Piero Lissoni: create decorative elements, mosaics, and cuts for wall and floor tiles. As the company notes, “we gave the designer our range to be freely mixed and matched, to create a ‘decor collection’ to be presented individually or to be used in combination with our different collections and surfaces.”
Each module of Canone Inverso’s four mosaics has its own particular geometry, in some cases deliberately asymmetrical to create new patterns. Each module also constitutes a color in the collection, obtained by mixing hues of similar shades selected from the Atlas Concorde range of minimalist cement-effect and stone-effect designs: Boost and Dwell (cement effect), Raw (cement plaster effect), Arkshade (minimalist cement effect), Kone (minimalist limestone effect).
