How New Ravenna Paid Homage to Miami in Its Latest Collection

Design professionals and connoisseurs know few tile and mosaic companies can rival the superior craftsmanship and attention to detail that New Ravenna brings to the craft. That tradition continues with the brand’s new fall collection Glazed Basalto, a line largely inspired by water and marked by earth tones, jewel colors and silver with 24K gold infused into the glaze.

“It’s more than a pretty face; it holds on to its brilliant color no matter which finish you apply and can withstand a huge amount of wear and tear without losing its vibrancy,” says Creative Director Cean Irminger. “The hand­glazing process creates a shifting color palette that gives incredible depth to the material, and the natural geode inclusions catch that glaze and add a wonderful, organic unexpected texture.”

The collection, which includes nine new designs and 17 reinterpreted patterns, was inspired by “Arabian Nights, textiles, quilting and nature,” as Irminger puts it, as well as by a style much closer to home. The Miami Bryce model echoes the midcentury-modern graphics and art deco influences that are so common in South Beach architecture. “With Miami Bryce, we wanted the pattern to shine and evoke the gorgeous deco architectural pieces that are found in the city,” says Irminger. “We also bisected the diamond so we had a three-color canvas to capture the iconic pastel Miami deco palette.”

Versatile as they can be, the Glazed Basalto mosaics can be installed on walls and floors, indoors and out. “It is truly the unicorn of the stone world,” adds Irminger. And we all know Miami can certainly get behind that.
