In 1904 Antoni Gaudí designed a hexagonal hydraulic mosaic to pave the floor of the casa Batlló. However the mosaics weren’t produced in time and they ended up paving the floors of the service rooms in his posterior work: casa Milà, known as “La Pedrera”.
In order to be true to its origins, at Mosaics Martí we created a scaled reproduction of the original 1904 iron mold with smaller dimensions, and we produce the mosaics using the same technique as at the beginning of the 20th century, achieving, through the blend of primary materials (cement, marble dust and natural pigments) the same surface finish as the original pieces.
With the clear intention of highlighting the Mosaic, here at Eva Gutenberg we have created a sobre presentation package with minimalist graphics and a very conceptual design that interacts with the mosaic without taking the spotlight away from it.
In the process of creating the name, and having gone through several options as is always the case with naming, we decided that this was one of those occasions when simpler is better. Throughout the process of the creation and communication of our products we referred to them this way: the Petit and the Clàssic. And we decided that was the way it should stay.
