ODYSSEY Odyssey is a new collection of limited edition decorations and accessories, conceived, planned and made by NCB ARCHITETTURA as art director of SCENE MEDITERRANEE, in cooperation with MADE A MANO. Passion and awareness guide the authors through a shared growth, where the aim is to value the tradition of the local Sicilian handicraft and its know-how, with a new language. Following the Sicilian ancient process to work ceramic and relying on a deep familiarity with lava stone, the authors made a series of architectural tiles that lead you across Ulysses poem to meet the strong culture of Mediterranean places and their great beauty. This hero is a benchmark for whoever wants to challenge the boundaries of human knowledge, and always keeps going, searching for new horizons, pushing himself beyond common places. It’s this true inspiration that guided craftsmen and designers through the project: the exclusive collection of tiles and decorations preserve the Mediterranean ar tisan erudition and historic values, but also aims to encourage and suppor t a new concept of contemporary Italian quality, beyond ordinary boundaries. Two series of tiles talk about this journey across the “Mare Nostrum”: Ulysses, Nausicaa, Calypso, Circe And Polyphemus are drawn with the typical Hellenic colours and simple, geometrical and evocative lines. Penelope, Aeolus, Argos and the Sirens are defined by lively colours which remind the Magna Graecia ancient temples, and they can be used as decoration for unique furnitures.

LAVASTONE A raw stone sourced from Sicily’s Mount Etna. The oldest recorded active volcano in the world. “ It undergoes a special process called “majolica” to transform it into ceramics. The result is amazing. The glazed lavastone is resistant to frost, heat and stains. It can be processed as polished, sawed, fluted or aged, and it is suitable for almost any interior and exterior use.

HANDMADE All the tiles are made with the technique of Graffito (from italian graffiato), that consists in scratiching the enamel to reveal the lava stone beneath it. “ Rosario Parrinello and us had the idea to stage the epic journey of Odysseus through the Mare Nostrum and give life to its characters. They are symbolized with signs and graphics clearly referring to the Hellenic culture and the ancient Mediterranean people.
