A collaboration between ABK and Studio Otto – Paola Navone has resulted in Poetry House a project that explores creative experiences, materials and graphic designs inspired by her most iconic and representative works. Navone, a Milanese designer, architect and art director, is renowned for her eclectic personality, free spirit and interest in different cultures.

Poetry House is the first step in a collaboration that will see ABK strengthen its presence in the world of design and is destined to continue in the future, the company said. The project consist of two collections of ceramic surfaces inspired by two different materials, wood and stone. 

Poetry Wood evokes the poetry of wood, a natural-looking surface with an elegant patina created by the passage of time. Available in four soft colors, the series comes in classic plank formats complemented by a 20x20 cm modular element. It offers an irresistible range of artisanal style decorations including a hand-painted plaster look that enhances the wood texture and an iridescent metallic effect. 

Poetry Stone is a poetic composition inspired by stone. It features a wide range of patterns, textures and decorative motifs that vary according to the size of the tile, from 60x120 cm up to large format slabs. It has a clean, essential and vaguely tribal look in keeping with the visual style of Studio Otto - Paola Navone.
