welcome to the new era of cotto... from fornace brioni....

bibiena pairs the whitest terracotta with fornace brioni's signature "variegato" clay. the combination is one of clé's boldest and more dynamic terracotta floors  designed by italian architect, cristina celestino, creative director of fornace brioni.

cristina's inspiration derives from the pathways and hedges of old italian formal gardens and is an exploration of natural cotto molded into geometric, modern shapes.

cotto is given a more contemporary feel with the design. each tile is made by hand in the fornace brioni pottery using artisan-crafted wooden molds.

about this collection

what is fornace brioni?

Non-vitreous terracotta tiles, which are hand formed, and fired. These are primarily unglazed tiles, we offer one glazed option (Cotto tivoli bundle -glossy green, matte rose, matte crema-4.5” X 15.5”).


Color and Texture Variation

  • Fornace Brioni tiles are rated V2 - V4 / T1 - T3

Due to the handmade craftsmanship of many of our tiles and the variety of materials used, there are degrees of variation in our tiles color, shade and texture. These differences are more pronounced in certain types of tiles than others, especially in tiles from separate production lots, or “batches”.  

The following is a guide for the different degrees of variation that we have assigned our tiles:
