The force of nature

Raging, then becoming calm, gurgling quietly and flowing rapidly again, water is a primordial element that at the same time conveys energy and creates harmony. Its regenerating power enters everyday life, creating a dialogue between the natural universe and the interior dimension, in a continuous contamination of environments and perceptions. The materials become vibrant, the light draws delicate alternations of chiaroscuro and reflections, the spaces are enlivened with a renewed ancestral strength.

The collection is inspired by the erosive action of water: where the stone emerges, the effect remains textured and structured; where it is submerged, it is smoothed and softened in contrasts, acquiring a more delicate and elegant appearance. The surfaces feature the typical characteristics of different stone materials, from stone to marble, whose originality comes from observation of selected and synthesised natural phenomena, to translate them into graphic signs that give depth and dynamism to the texture. The palette interprets the mineral world: Natural is the medium shade, most reminiscent of waterlogged river stones; Beige is a light shade tending towards ash; White is a cooler, more contemporary white; Grey is the medium, neutral grey; Graphite the darker, more intense colour. There is a plurality of sizes: 120×120, 60×120, 80×80, 40×80 available in all colours and finishes – Matt, Glossy and Soft. In addition, the 90×90 OUT2.0 size (2 cm thick for outdoor use) is available in a number of colours. The Chevron and Muretto 3D decorations complete the range.

Glossy > Submerged stone, constantly polished by water: the surface is reflective, with a unique appearance that conveys a feeling of elegance.
Soft > Stone lapped by water: the structure is textured but remains quite delicate, with a perception of soft balance and natural appeal.
Matt > The emerging stone: the texture becomes rougher. This finishing is also suitable for flooring in collective premises.

Chevron, with its classic shape emphasised by the glossy finish, translates the refined essence of the material with the elegant fishbone application that is back in the spotlight in certain contexts, especially commercial premises. The 3D Muretto, in which shiny and protruding tiles alternate with matte and recessed tiles, accentuates the perception of dynamism and materiality, recalling the contrasts generated by the action of nature. Both decorations are available in all colours. The Matt finishing guarantees considerable anti-slip resistance, allowing the product to be chosen also for public and commercial contexts that require high technical performance.

The collection presents an average colour shading, with significant graphic and chromatic transitions between one tile and the next, while still maintaining an overall balance of the installed surface.
