To draw a shape with repetition as its purpose. Samir Mazer is an artist who has chosen Moroccan clay tiles, their irregular and sensual surfaces, to create rhythmic patterns. “The repetition of shape and color upon a zellige tile is a musical exercise. It is like drawing a pixel, creating a module and then sampling it to make a track”. An exercise that remains all too difficult and too discrete to be saved from frequent copies by big brands and creators lacking the foresight and mental skill to plan out the sequence of shapes in space.

LELIEVRE RIVIERA

Since 2013, Ateliers Zelij has built a bridge between traditional Moroccan zellige tile-work and contemporary architecture. The geometric rigor of patterns combined with the soft irregularity of surfaces and shades of color have made of these antique glazed and chiseled clay tiles a must-have in decoration. The zellige tile-work installation, which Hermes chose to put on display at their art de vivre stand in Milan, is but one example. Artist and designer, Samir Mazer born in Tetouan Morocco, reinvents new patterns and new formats on a daily basis with Delphine Laporte from within their Toulouse based studio. A complementary partnership, both at work and at home, has made this a duo key figure of the zellige revival. Lire la suite…
