The Italian manufacturer SICIS revolutionised mosaic tile production by significantly simplifying the steps it takes to create a unique surface. With its expansion into the furniture and interior sector, this tile manufacturer brand offers its customers a truly holistic living experience.
For the past 25 years, Italian tile brand Sicis has been pioneering innovation in its chosen field: the ancient art of mosaic tiles. Its approach to industrialising mosaic tile production, whilst maintaining its artisanal quality, sets it apart in the contemporary market, and is the reason its mosaic tile products are favoured by the world’s leading architects and interior designers.
In 1989, Sicis founder Maurizio Placuzzi developed a more efficient way to achieve stunning mosaic tile designs using the latest technologies. His patented invention, known as the “double indirect method” allows tiles to be pre-assembled on a backing mesh of varying sizes, which then combine to form the final mosaic tile display. Needless to say, it revolutionised the mosaic tile industry. The process made it possible to produce mosaics on a larger scale and at a more affordable price point, enabling the company to expand and collaborate with clients around the world.
Sicis is based in the town of Ravenna, which is the historic centre of Italian mosaic tile production. It employs local artisans and graduates from the town’s Mosaic Art School, who are trained in the ancient skills of mosaic tile production. Sicis is also dedicated to furthering the evolution of mosaic to ensure its continued relevance in the 21st century. This approach has resulted in groundbreaking products including iridescent mosaic tile, metal mosaic tile, mosaic-covered mannequins.
Sicis mosaic tile includes:
DIAMOND: The introduction of SICIS mosaic tile rhombus-shaped tesserae unlocks new opportunities for geometric patterns. Araldica, 3 dimensional inserts made of transparent crystal glass and opalescent glass paste create an additional layer and enrich the design possibilities.
FLOWER POWER: Sicis Flower Power mosaic tile collection distinguishes itself for its chromatics and its decisive approach, as well as for its background painting of huge flowers, representing sunflowers, narcissuses, daisies, noble roses, water-lilies, anemones, lilies, tulips, etc. The range of subjects plays with the knowledgeable compositions following the muses of Murano Smalto, Glimmer and Waterglass collections. The differing material consistencies and perspectives of the three collections together give a variety of reflections and coloration that make the chosen floral theme even more vivacious
ORIENTALE: Sicis Orientale mosaic tile collection is a long journey, starting at the center of your room and heading towards far-off destinations like the depth of your inner self. The results are incredibly accurate, microscopic, precious combinations inspired by the forms and designs of the Far East vases from the 18th and 19th century, long admired and loved in Europe.
