Shades of Grey
EXPLORING THE UNIVERSAL COLOUR
Considering the notion of Non-lieux (Non place) as theorised by Marc Augé in 1992, in the extent of public spaces as “containers” (“spaces of transience where the human beings remain anonymous”), one can find a concept of neutrality as a design feature. A “blank” space that “does not hold enough significance”, made to be “filled” by commercial activities or, sometimes, not be filled at all.
The Artigo collection comprises many ideas of grey, the universal colour: from the monochromatic surfaces to all the products featuring micro-granules and fibres. Each project can be characterised with some micro-texture. As in the case of Gimpo Airport International Terminal in Seoul, where our Zeus rubber flooring is features in four shades (one of which is a custom-made, grey with brown granules version).
The Concrete effect
The cafeteria of the Antioch High School features our exclusive rubber flooring Screed, with painted concrete look. The result is a dynamic, fluid composition that brings excitement in the students’ favorite place to relax and take a break.
Produced with our water-jet technology, the design is a mix of our Nd/Uni in the U108 yellow and Screed in two different shades of grey. One of the many “interpretations of grey” brought to life thanks to the Artigo collection.
