A reference point formodern surfaces with a deluxe, vintage feel, marble has recently revamped its aesthetic language, preserving the traditional appeal and feeling of luxury that it emanates in every space, large and small.
These new interpretations have been made possible by high-tech, high performance materials like porcelain, with innovative finishes and latest generation modular flexibility, like large sizes with a reduced thickness.
Maxi slabs and the need to customise spaces in the homehave produced solutions like tables, kitchen countertops and sink tops, shelves, doors, stairs, platforms and every other kind of surface or support.
Marble offers the feeling of strength and beauty in every space, and this is why it is once again amongst the best design solutions for 2019, still one of the most popular materials for new builds and for renovations both large and small.
Choosing a marble-effect floor or covering is always an attractive, hard-wearing solution, thanks to the inalterability over time of porcelain.

Why choose large slabs from the Ultra collection?
There are many reasons: with the Ultra 300x150 cm large size, just 6 mm thick, Ariostea slabs are a tangible example of "the high-tech revolution introduced by large sizes in the porcelain sector”. They offer excellent technical performance and are hard-wearing, high quality, waterproof, easy to maintain and fully customisable.
This combination of technical and aesthetic performance offers countless design possibilities, with new functions and uses.
For example, in bathrooms and kitchens: two of the most personal and most used spaces in the home, where top-of-the-range porcelain can really make a difference, also in terms of everyday practicality.
Their advantages do not end there: designers have the added possibility of using a "real porcelain" product that is adaptable and easy to manoeuvre, as it is only 6 mm thick.
Its imposing height, as well as being unique on the market as a result of its base measurement of 150 cm, makes it ideal for seamless solutions for furnishings, floors and walls.
Solutions like the book match, the mirrored composition effect that can be obtained with marble veining, is a captivating solution for designers.
Finally, Ultra slabs are the result of innovative technologies, protected by international patents and produced by Iris Ceramica Group know-how over fifty years, with a quality that ensures the Group retains its leadership of the international porcelain sector.
