New Town is a contemporary meeting of Modern Italy with Classical Britain
Inspired by the elegant but bold use of pure geometries that defined the urban planning of Georgian Bath and Edinburgh’s New Town, as well as the controlled irregularity of simple forms carefully arranged in Carlo Scarpa’s exquisite Fondazione Querini Stampalia paving, New Town is a playful and sophisticated coming together of the very best craft traditions from modern Venice, with a contemporary take on the greatest era of British classical design.
Handmade in Nove in Italy's Veneto, the tiles are available in any colour combination, in either smooth-surface finish that emphasises the clarity of the interconnected geometries, or with delicate grooves cast into the tile surfaces that both hint at the layout of city streets, and also act to catch light in a dramatic manner, celebrating the depth and patina of Botteganove’s hand applied glazes, or in a mixture of the two, New Town always creates a wall surface that is dynamic and bold, as well as subtle and restrained.
Whether deployed in rich, deep colourways that recall the most sensuous of tropical modernisms, or gleaming in simple white or a milky and diaphanous pearlescence, the geometry of New Town creates a surface that is at once classic, and modern, a delight of pure form.
