Meet Designer Daniel Ogassian: A Master Tile-Maker for All Surfaces
Click images to enlarge
There is an Italian fine art term – Sprezzatura – which describes a master painter’s technique for producing a painting which appears simple on the surface, but is actually a very difficult process to master. Apt description for Daniel Ogassian, Master Tile-Maker.
When designing with tile, we are seeing more elements being added to clean lines. Our designers are using (and seeing) more exotic designs…natural foliage-inspired patterns, metallic-washed elevated pieces, quilt-like tonals, intertwining multi colors, or basketweaves turned in various directions. We are also seeing asymmetry with cuts and curves giving the illusion of movement as shown in these designs by Daniel Ogassian.
Since 1995, Daniel Ogassian & Associates, Inc. has generated a continuous stream of products for the residential, commercial, and hospitality design industries. Ogassian says, “The tiles are beautifully clean, not modern, but not ornate. There are so many materials, holy-grail finishes, hyper-capable technologies and equipment, and these are all traditional elements which can bog you down and take you in different directions. Add CAD and the choices explode. But with the production knowledge as the foundation, I can concept while taking full advantage of everything…up-to-date, up-to-the-second.”
Widely available in top metropolitan areas by June 1, these tile designs will be rolled out in showrooms nationwide this summer. The tiles are available in concrete and ceramic and the high-chemistry glazes are rendered in earthy shades adding a depth and texture to wall surfaces and floors.
The entire line of Ogassian products is appropriate for indoor or outdoor use and can be specified in any of the matte or gloss glazes, as well as custom glazes formulated and designed by Daniel. With a Masters in Fine Arts in ceramics and 20 years of practice, his glazing expertise supplies the warmth and touch to the finished product. Great news for designers is that these designs can be scaled to accommodate any project, and his studio will work directly with designers to create custom installations and deliver your project within the tightest of lead times.
