These properties include the material’s unique properties, the innovation of large sizes, and the variety of available effects and colours.
Let us take a closer look at these aspects, presenting the catalogue of FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti, a world-renowned ceramic coverings brand, recently expanded with the addition of 9 surfaces inspired by marble, already popular products for design in 2022.
These are the materials that are in nature compacted to form stone under the influence of plate tectonics and the heat of the upper layers of the earth’s crust.
In this case man-made materials are actually superior to the natural original in a number of ways, as all defects are eliminated (such as variations in hue, cracks and pores) while preserving their unique qualities of unrepeatability, calibre and consistency through three dimensions.
These manufacturing procedures are ecological, as sands, clays and minerals are obtained without damaging or destroying the environment they come from, on the basis of the conscientious, sensitive policies of the Iris Ceramica Group which owns the FMG brand.
A vast choice of sub-multiples allows the Maxfine collection to offer unrivalled visual continuity in homes and public places, for example by using the same flooring material inside and outside the building, or covering large walls with a single slab, limiting the need for grouting.
Moreover, Maxfine maxi-slabs are lightweight and easy to work with, permitting their use in customised furnishings, and even in curved surfaces.
This makes Maxfine ideal for use in tables, worktops, columns, bathroom and kitchen countertops, consoles, visible surfaces in interior decoration and custom architectural finishes, as revealed by the selection of images shown here.
The great variety of available effects and colours faithfully reproduces the best stones and most precious marbles, and even includes concrete, onyx and various metals.
The new product lines, highly various to offer a vast choice of styles and designs, are characterised by originality and a multitude of colours, reinterpreting ancient marbles with a long tradition of use in architecture with a contemporary twist to adapt them to the new demands of today.
