Artistic Tile X Alison Rose
Winner of Interior Design’s 2019 Best of Year awards,
Zephyr is a collection born from a unique partnership
between well-known designer tile company, Artistic
Tile, and NYC-based interior designer and architect,
Alison Rose. This collection explores eternity, weaving
fibres into everlasting twists to produce something so
dimensional, it’s almost mesmerising.
This innovative and out-of-the box creativity synonymous with Alison’s style, combined with the design & business sensibilities of Nancy Epstein (CEO, Artistic Tile) and the skills of Orvi’s artisans allowed the fruition of this one-of-a-kind design. The Zephyr surface is inlaid with brass gracefully through the summit of an intricate, hand-carved ridge that effortlessly flows like a river across each patterned marble piece.
ORVI through a client-partner was introduced to
globally acclaimed UK-based interior designer, Kit
Kemp. A household name in design, hotel management,
and homewares, she was tapped as the lead designer
for an experiential flooring line in partnership with
C.P Hart in London. As her reputation for stylish and
story-forward design precedes her, Kit was aiming for
a celestial design that combined lavish marble with
sun, moon, and star-shaped inlays that were cleverly lit
up from beneath the surface.
By combining Kit’s design sensibilities with the craftsmanship of our expert artisans along with our mastery in inlay work, we helped Kit realize her design dream of creating a unique surface with an inlay of glass and stainless steel in natural stone.
Naba Milan 2020
ORVI partnered with one of Italy’s finest design
institutions, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA)
for a design-immersion & competition titled “The
Vision Beneath the Surface”. This partnership
provided a platform for design students at the school to
combine their creativity, nascent design thinking, and
educational lessons to research, plan, and design a new
furniture product and a fresh line of surfaces. ORVI
provided not only the crafting infrastructure but also
mentorship on design and techniques along with the
The 4-month project ended with two new experimental product lines (two winning designs) which ORVI will launch in the consumer market as décor solutions. This would allow the students to use this project as a backdrop for future opportunities in design and architecture.
