TISSÉ by NEW RAVENNA
Tissé by New Ravenna is a collection of 23 mosaic designs inspired by international weaving techniques and textiles.
Tissé, which means “to weave” in French, explores the structure of the raw materials and techniques of heritage designs used in textiles and upholstery. Traditional fibers like Rattan, Jute and Esparto are interpreted in stone colors that represent the original plant strands. Woven designs like Tweed, Gingham Chevron, Cabin Weave, Wicker and Twill Ombre were designed first by separating fabric threads to understand how the textile was created. For the Cardigan and Cable Knit mosaics, individual stitches were photographed and enlarged to recreate the intricate permuting patterns. Thomeas, Corduroy and Cane Weave emulate the three-dimensional quality of heavily textured materials and are suitable for vertical installations. Either subtle or dramatic contrasting color patterns are the highlight of Maya, Perseid, Indira and Ziggurat. Individual stone pieces were then hand cut, tumbled or given a Venetian (pillowed) effect to soften the stone with a more rounded finish. Darker grout was applied to create shadows and depth between each piece of stone, glass, and shell.
USAGE: Each pattern can be fully customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project. Some shell, brass and glass elements not recommended for exterior usage, heavy traffic floors and wet areas, please check with our representative.
