Filigrane, seeing transparently and beyond
At first it deceives, then it surprises, and then it makes one smile and think. The decorative pattern of Filigrane, the latest decoration from Lea Ceramiche designed by Philippe Nigro, develops on the basis of a regular geometrical pattern of iridescent effects that extend outwards randomly like the characteristic veining of the most highly prized marbles.
Or rather, as the image of those veins. An incursion between the real and the fake and which is illusory and destabilising. A superimposition that is veiled, transparent, and obviously fake, yet which nevertheless creates the appearance of an authentic material even though it is not a material that can be found in nature and has been obtained thanks to an advanced technological process.
