The 1.618 series is the exactly reproduction of “golden rectangle” geometrical shape. The drawing of the golden ratio is not concealed, but rather enhanced by the manufacturing of the tile itself realised by imprinting the proportion drawing on it using a slight incision as a bassorilievo technique. All the possible compositions are equally excellent, from the most regular and symmetrical to the free ones made without rules, because generated by elements matched to each other. The tile, made by unglazed homogeneous porcelain stoneware, for its material and the natural palette of colours chosen, wants to refer to the untreated look of traditional floors made by cotto tile or concrete. The geometry of the “golden rectangle” determines the repetition of square shape which is recurrent in the distribution in different sizes, but always proportional to the biggest of them.
