The decor panache of SICIS :

 

Since its beginning in Ravenna in 1986, SICIS has been on a mission to merge the art of the ancients in the craft of mosaics, with modern industrial techniques. Incorporating SICIS’s diverse glass mosaic collections, which include transparent, iridescent, mirrored, and textured materials, it has flourished to become a premier mosaic innovator. Flamboyant, exuberant and fearless in the implementation of ideas has been an enduring feature of Italian design, especially since the post war modernist resurgence. Sicis is continuing this adventurous tradition, offering modern mosaic concepts that capture a contemporary realm of design, taking the rich, classical Italian mosaic art of the past to new captivating levels. SICIS is a factory of artists, mosaic innovators, interior designers and glass makers who research, create, interpret and revitalize. They cater for a diverse range of clients producing monumental murals, bathroom and living space wall panels, mosaic sculptures, mosaic floors/rugs, mosaic jewellry and furnishings.
The city of Ravenna is filled with exquisite works that adorn the monuments, historic buildings and interiors of Ravenna’s churches, dating back over 1500 years. The mosaic medium made a considerable addition to the arts that reflect the might of Christian rule within the Roman empire. In the 5th – 6th century AD there were notable contributions from the Byzantine rulers and Theodoric, who decorated the holy buildings of Ravenna in glittering mosaics.

Manufacturing its own “tesserae” directly in Ravenna has given SICIS a lot of flexibility with colour, texture and styles to develop innumerable patterns and palettes in their custom designs of figurative and abstract murals and floors. SICIS has also made a foray into the design of furniture, lighting fixtures and other interior design accessories to support their philosophy of ‘elementi decorativi’ to create integrated outcomes. The longevity of Ravennas steep history in the mosaic arts. is guaranteed with the inventive, pioneering flair and dedication of SICIS.
