Italian Ceramic Tiles - Technology and design for all purposes

Edited By Redazione The Plan - 5 May 2010

Thanks to high-grade manufacturing processes and constant research into technology and design, Italy’s ceramic tiles continue to shine throughout the world as a by-word for ‘made in Italy’. One quality feature about Italian ceramic-ware is the trouble the producers take to suit the end-users’ requirements. This drives continuous technological and aesthetic development of ceramic products as they adapt to changes in style and design and fit in with alternative applications. The high aesthetic potential of ceramic-ware is also exploited to make surface textures and colouring that resemble natural materials like stone and wood.
Natural/1.0 by Floor Gres takes its cue from pietra piasentina, a rock that is common in north-eastern Italy. It picks up the colour shades in its range of five colour schemes matching any type of furnishings.
The colours of another stone, pietra basaltina, form the inspiration for Mauk by Lea. Here the peculiarity lies in the modular potential of the format: by making compositions in various colours one achieves a sense of visual 3-D.
Marble Hill by Naxos is a series of wall and floor tiles on a white biscuit, available in two rectified formats and imbued with the classical elegance of marble. For its part, MDstone by Momo Design proposes present-day lines, cold colours and stylized geometrical motifs.
Wood is the material that Marazzi have imitated with Treverk, an indoor collection in large formats, soft colours and delicate contrasts.
Special attention to surface texture is the hallmark of Filo by Laminam; it comes in four colour schemes recalling metals - with a surprising three-dimensional effect.
Painterly ornamentation and a damask effect are the new ideas from Mirage with their Atelier collection; while Sant’Agostino’s Green Power - a collection for indoors and out of doors - draws on digital technology printing systems specially researched for the tile industry.
An eye to toughness, allied with an essential colour scheme, is the watchword with Sherpa, a project from Leonardo Ceramica; here the high resistance to loads and to the wear and tear of passing feet makes it suitable for all kinds of environment.
