Riad Damasco D-1
It all started on a journey of a couple of designers and friends, Alvaro Catalán de Ocón and Francesco Faccin. Both have known each other while studying Industrial Design in Milan and they have had a parallel career for many years; they have exhibited their work together in many occasions and shared travels and experiences building a strong friendship as for a common vision and approach to the profession of the Industrial Designer.
During a visit to Marrakesh in 2014, we run across a workshop of cement tiles and got fascinated by the manufacturing process and the strong visual expressiveness of this construction material.
The cement tile was born in South Mediterranean Europe at the beginning of the 20th century as an industrialized evolution of the old mosaic or marble floors. Even so, it is now considered a highly artisanal process and therefore nowadays, its production has mainly moved to Morocco due to Europe’s high costs of hand labour.
