Grão, 2008

Grão is a visual composition and reproduction system that first of all aims to give a new life to end-of-theline, industrially produced tiles. It also aspires to become an innovative option for the rehabilitation of the urban built heritage. It recovers discontinued production tiles, using them as units of decorative cladding panels, destined both to architectural façades and to the (re)furbishment of other urban elements. Made up of hundreds, or even thousands of tiles—the “grains” that build an image of monumental presence—these panels aim to be part of the urban landscape in a both determined and surprising way.
