GRÃO:the new life of end -of-line tiles*

GRÃO by Pedrita is a very interesting system. GRÃO aims to give new life to end-of-line, industrially produced tiles. It recovers discontinued production tiles and uses them as units of decorative cladding panels, destined both for architectural façades and for the refurbishment of other urban structures. The beauty of GRÃO is the different way of see it: when you are close, you can see the design of every tiles; when you are far, you can see the whole image that the tiles form.
For the first life-scale project, a "still life" composition demonstrating the GRÃO system was created and presented at the National Tile Museum in Lisbon from July 18th to October 25th 2007. To seeee!!!
