The Wall Project
- story by MaterialDistrict
The Wall Project by MAVC comes from the need of experimenting ideas of colour, texture and pattern using simple geometrical shapes in the tradition of both Portuguese and English monochromatic tiles. The works are produced in small scale, allowing the designer Maria Ana Vasco Costa to introduce handmade processes that result in a large range of pattern variations available for each project.
Normally, she uses low temperature red and white clay tiles for interiors and more resistant stoneware for external interventions. The tiles can be put together like a puzzle, with infinite possibilities on pattern making to make bespoke projects.
