The world of ceramic coverings has in recent years amplified its offer for the market with formerly unthinkable effects and textures.
This technical and aesthetic evolution has offered a variety of styles ranging from the classic to the contemporary, permitting creation of customised spaces.
High-tech ceramic, the most versatile of materials, facilitates new constructions and renovations, and is perfect for use in furnishings and objects for the home.
But ceramics’ contribution to interior design is not limited to these important changes.
Floors with porcelain maxi-slabs define new architectural idioms with visual continuity, offering attractive, innovative looks appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use.
In this dynamic scenario, there are some materials which have evolved and been renewed more successfully than others, while always maintaining the classic aesthetic tradition.
One of the most obvious examples is stone, a material that maintains its ancestral attraction unchanged, suiting a variety of interior design styles ranging from the most minimalist to the most refined.
And so stone is seeing a time of renewed popularity, conveying its usual sense of compactness, strength and warmth.
’s research has focused on stone effect solutions
in large sizes, such as Ultra Pietre
, recently implemented with new textures.

The three new products Infinity Black, Galaxy Grey
and White Ocean

which are essentially neutral, creating a colour palette emphasising intermediate hues of grey and beige
In addition to its bold yet elegant hues, the beauty of these surfaces is underlined by "subtle veining effects and smooth tones".
The 300x150 cm maxi-slab size
and the texture of the soft finish means these new products are highly versatile for a great variety of uses and also appropriate for making designer furnishings and objects
This gives free rein to creativity and freedom of design to customise spaces in homes, offices, businesses, restaurants and outdoor spaces of refined elegance.
