For the inaugural introduction from her namesake studio, young Italian designer Elisa Passino cleverly links the age-old Portuguese tradition of azulejos, or patterned ceramic tile, with the vibrant architecture of Luis Barragán, Ricardo Bofill, and Le Corbusier. The suite’s nine designs are named after Italian architecture terms, Arco and Capitello among them. Geometrie Componibili—handmade in Portugal from terra-cotta clay and screen-printed with a mash-up of geometric shapes—suits most interior and exterior applications, including walls, countertops, showers, and swimming pools. Each pattern also comes in 10 colorways that can be swapped with any combination of the studio’s 18 Miami art deco-inspired shades—like Green Salt and Flamenco Red. Passino can also develop custom glazes and compositions.
