Seamless wall tiling of large spaces, accents for specific areas and color mixing and tone-on-tone matching are all features of Materika and Essenziale Marazzi’s two new collections that offer multiple composition options, starting from the large (40x120 m), thin (6 mm) wall tiles that can be integrated, based on the design, into 3D structures and décor. 

Materika won the Ceramics Design Award 2015 from Association for Industrial Design (ADI) at the latest edition of Cersaie. It is a re-interpretation of concrete on a satin finish surface, with five color options: Off White, Beige, Grigio, Fango, and Antracite. Dune and Spatula are 3D structures created using digital technology, drawing inspiration from the undulating flow of sand dunes and the “patterns” created by the manual application of concrete using a trowel. Both are available in all the colors and are laid horizontally along walls. Two further motifs complete the collection: Cementine, which draws inspiration from the typical patterns of Cementine tiles, is available in two versions that can be combined with warm and cold colors; the other is mosaic with square tesserae available in all the color options and with tesserae processed with precious metals, gold and platinum, for an oxidized effect. Essenziale is about absolute white either for a total white look or for lively combinations with colorful tiles or materials such as wood, marble or stone. 

Available in polished and satin finishes, the collection also has two 3D structures: Dune reproduces the same texture as the Materika equivalent and is available in polished and satin versions; Natura is only available in satin, but has stylized patterns of a natural element, like a petal or leaf. 

Materika and Essenziale were originally designed for home bathrooms, but the array of compositions also makes them an excellent choice in bathrooms and other sections in restaurants, offices, hotels and wellness centers.
