Think Projects is an architecture and interior design association from Turin.
We design apartments by focussing on the dialogue between the colours and shapes of materials in the space.
What where your objectives when you chose the materials to be used for your floor or wall coverings?
We wanted a space that echoed tradition but was also playful and whimsical. The bathroom is part of an 18th century apartment, the tobacco colour of the tiles interacts with the original parquet floor and the colour of the vaulted ceiling. We made the floor stand out by using a contrasting effect with the white wall covering.
What made you chose the Tonalite products?
We thought it was the right product because it recalls the historic cement tiles in the atriums and under the porticoes of traditional buildings in Turin (e.g. there were special pieces, the right sizes, a particular colour or texture…).
What colours and combinations did you chose and how did you use them?
We used a mixture of tobacco, sand and beige hexagonal Examatt tredi tiles for the bathroom floor (e.g. small glossy white tiles combined with a wine-coloured rounded border).
