Here ceramics is not used as a finish, but as a full-fledged architectural material in its own right, a participant in the composition.
The Black ceramics, in the 60x60cm polished size, chosen among GranitiFiandre’s sophisticated, innovative products, forms the ventilated façade with a concealed system to give the gallery a distinctive architectural identity.
The material is subtle in the filigree that marks the joints, a supporting actor; strong in presenting clear, elegant color, it marvelously represents the theme of the Galleria Ferrari contents, a virtual emblem of strength, precision and elegance. It makes a bright and beautiful presence. The black of the ceramic slabs and Ferrari’s trademark red dialogue and play off each other in a successful color balance born of contrast and expressivity.
Rather than a “skin”, it is a component of the structure, which presents its eye-catching, beautiful qualities both on the inside and the outside. It gives visitors a foretaste of the thrills that await them inside. These values transcend pure material.
They draw on instinctive choices of the architect who selects ceramics, a product exploding in technological and color development, and enters into the project’s sensibility to experience the excitement of compositional design.
