Biscuit | Listone Giordano

Biscuit emerged from a collaboration with Patricia Urquiola. The collection returns to the natural decorative vocation of wooden flooring and gives the material a more sinuous design. “Biscuit is a project that develops around a concept of softness. It is characterized by a composition of lines and free forms,” the designer explained. Both for flooring and panels, we are faced with a new idea of parquet.
