The MATIRIA project was inspired by Bruno Rosa's desire to blend the art of ceramics with heat technology as applied to carbon fibre. Bruno's father is Otello Rosa, a painter and sculptor much renowned for his works of art in Venice in the 50s. Bruno genes saw to it that he become a creator and designer who uses art to transform materials into unique objects of furniture to enhance the sense of well-being in the home.

All Matiria ceramic coverings stem from collaboration of Bruno Rosa with the most important ceramic specialists in Nove di Bassano which has been renowned since the 18th century for the production of artistic ceramic works. This town is a global point of reference for works of rare beauty and one company that stands out for its excellence is “Ceramiche Zanolli” where unique ceramics are created with almost fanatical attention to detail.
