Architecture and design have always intersected and expanded by invading and sharing spaces and projects. But architecture and design would not mean much without the hand of generations that make and produce.
This is make, the new product line by S.Anselmo, aimed at satisfying alternative design requirements through the proposal of emotional materials and products. Make is the expression of a timeless architecture that even though is contemporary, is able to transversely connect production methods and emotional designs both from a time and a space perspective.
Make supplies the conceptual idea and it pushes it until it becomes a limitless invention. It also represents the product that can be “made” in every sense as it’s not yet complete but it’s realised through handmade techniques passed over generations and time.
Terracotta, through make, is projected towards other frontiers highlighting the characteristics of simplicity and naturalness that become the exclusive look of our new collection.

Comfortable, relaxed, pleasing: this is the translation of the Japanese term raku, the technique used to make karak tiles and there could not be a better description for these clay tiles that express harmony through their simplicity and naturalness in shape.
Each karak tile is a piece of art completely handmade and based on ancient manufacturing and cooking techniques.
Colours, sometimes iridescent and brilliant, and sometimes opaque and pale, contrasted with natural blacks obtained in the cooking process and embedded in original shapes, are characteristic signs of a product that has been transformed into cladding and decorative materials offering elegant and alternative solutions.
“Breaking” the sun and creating interesting shadows and geometric divisors. Light filters penetrating the space: these are our sunbreaks gelosie. p>
Terracotta finds the perfect combination in these products because if left raw it highlights the naturalness of the raw material, while if glazed it becomes a sophisticated and special design element. The ingenuity and creativity of designers and architects is stimulated by our sunbreaks gelosie to design both indoor environments and external installations.
Our louvers offer a facade option that allows the creation of uncluttered and minimalist lines.
Our range of colours, inspired by a typical earthy palette, provides a distinctive and at the same time perfect harmony with most building material.
The natural clay cladding system offers architects and builders more than a striking good aesthetic, it’s also very flexible and easy to install and guarantees a unique and timeless design.
Terracotta returns to take on the flooring and paving function and with the help of traditional shapes and colours expresses a new style that reflects our time.
Profiles and finishes become part of the design and adapt to the architectural needs dictated by the new geometric style.
Terracotta represents a collection that offers a fresh way of living the raw material and places it within timeless architectures that come back from he past to be contemporary..
Bricks become precious through the transformation that sees glass becoming raw material: glass bricks are born. The fine manufacturing process applied to the glass, and through which it’s possible to achieve finishes of particular beauty, emphasizes and contrasts at the same time a material that can be cleverly combined with terracotta, the typical material for bricks.
It is up to the skills and creativity of architects to imagine how to use it to highlight its noble and precious characters.

It is up to the skills and creativity of architects to imagine how to use it to highlight its noble and precious characters. Glass bricks , in their new cladding function, add that extra dimension of transparent contours to the casing by playing with the intriguing “now you see me, now you don’t” effect.
