Scarpa tile is derived from the name of an Italian architect: Carlo Scarpa (1906 - 1978). He is an architect influenced by the materials, landscape and history of Venetian and Japanese culture.
In 1957, Scarpa was commissioned by the Olivetti typewriter company to design their showroom in Venice, Italy. This gallery is considered a masterpiece of modern architecture, and is now a museum displaying his work.
The Scarpa tiles are made like a mosaic inspired by the works of Carlo Scarpa, their form resembles the keyboard of the typewriter itself.
