REPLICA PRODUCTION

Specialized production

To respond to situations of gaps in tiles or other architectural ceramic pieces or dysfunctionality of original pieces, DDL has created a replication production and supply service, where traditional production techniques are privileged.

The reproductions seek to return the general reading of the panels or buildings, looking for the original aesthetic language, through the appropriate thickness and surface of the ceramics, the drawing, the colors, and the painting techniques, creating pieces that integrate and that do not disturb the visual perception of the ensemble.
