HISTORY – For Matteo Brioni build with the earth is the experience of four generations matured into the brick factory of Gonzaga’s countryside, owned by the Brioni family since 1920. Work and passion met when Matteo has rediscovered the clay, a material not only sustainable and healthy, but also with a natural beauty. MattoBrioni SRL was founded in 2010 to devote itself exclusively to the earth products. EARTH – is one of the oldest construction materials: mixture of clays and natural aggregates, it is just left to air dry, without the need for cooking. Traditional material, is led by MatteoBrioni towards a contemporary use. Coming from a careful selection of clays, is free of pigment and expresses all the quality of the place of origin and high chromatic, tactile and hygroscopic qualities. A healthy and hypoallergenic material, able to regulate temperature and humidity, to create continuous surfaces and to sinuously adapt to any shape, with a versatility that allows bold experimentation. For Matteo Brioni, the respect of the material is the respect of the earth. His work blends three values: ethics, as consciousness of what is produced; aesthetics, as natural beauty of the material; ecology, as respect for the environment, from production to application process and product life. The company’s daily challenge is to bring the matter beyond its limits, through continuous research on its use in architecture: to create new perspectives in the lived space, giving three-dimensionality to the surfaces and transfering the natural sensorial charge typical of the earth in the spaces designed by man.
