First Prize - Category Designers

Indoor flooring composed by a texture of modular tiles allowing different combinations and which highlight the movement of people within its space through the natural process of oxidation. The special treatment determines an initial status where the transparent protective paint is laid on the surface making the tile completely polished; time and usage let the tile oxidize where the paint is not present, highlighting the most trodden paths. The irony of the decoration is enclosed in the drawing of small insects and objects which usually are to be found in isolated and careless places.Reason for the prize: by a careful and sophisticated layout of principles currently on topic in the artistic debate, especially regarding life through time of material, the designers demonstrate their knowledge and ability to use and set off a specific potential of copper.
