Svan, the gemstone from Venis
One of Venis‘ bets is the textures and shapes captured in the ceramics with the aim of turning the spaces into something singular and distinctive of each person. We design with relief and volume to highlight areas, create contrasts, break with uniformity… In this line, we presented at Cersaie – international ceramic exhibition in Bologna – the Svan wall decoration in pure black and 45×120 cm format.
This material is inspired in the cutting of gemstones, a process that causes the same piece to have more and less marked sparkles. The darkest black contrasts with the silver shines.
It should be borne in mind that, depending on the incidence of light, this disparity will be accentuated to a greater or lesser degree. In a place where the sun’s rays are pointing towards Svan, the brightness will not attract as much attention as if they were coming from the side.
Venis | How to combine Svan?
Considering what we have said about light, we recommend using this wall covering in those spaces where you have a window or access to the outside so that it looks enough and does not generate a feeling of darkness.
In addition, it is better to use it in large environments because due to its black color and rough texture, if we place it in a small bathroom (for example) will recharge too much.
However, there is no written rule for combining Svan. It is a product that can be combined with other materials and furniture of different styles. Our first move has been to mix Svan with Persa Dark, another new Venis collection with a stone finish. The furniture and the washbasin were also chosen in black and dark brown because we wanted a very elegant space, knowing that the large window allows a lot of light to enter and counteract the darkness.
Venis | Svan combined with ceramic wood
Another way to combine it is to use Starwood ceramic wood on the floor. We chose the Vancouver Moka model because of its light color and naturalness. Unlike the previous case, with this design we got a lot of contrast.
In both cases Svan reproduces small prisms with an irregular relief that guarantees amazing spaces.
