Unique pieces

Ceramic decorative trends are increasingly going further: new formats, exclusive details, new geometric combinations… Everything that makes them unique and able to inspire every room in our homes with personality and own style
Far from continuing with expected lines, flooring and wall ceramic tiles collections are committed to designs capable of taking center stage of the room that deviate from traditional.

Oversized geometrics
Some rare pieces, beyond the typical square or rectangle format, offer the possibility of combining the pieces together, playing with mix of various shades in order to create a three-dimensional effect. Optical illusions but with an elegant and timeless aesthetic.

Sensory ceramics
Ceramics is no longer understood as a simple canvas for static contemplation, but rather as a sensory experience for the user thanks to changing parameters that affects it; thus, the receive light, the position of the observer and / or the shades combination, shows as if ceramic pieces were made of different materials producing optical illusions.

Using the folding technique two different views appear depending on the direction from which the user approaches the workpiece, accordingly, the color, the texture, or even different parts of the piece will be perceived.

Luxury and timelessness of noble metals
The transfer of technology from other sectors makes possible to achieve special pieces such as metallic tiles obtained by the technique of physical vapor deposition (PVD) that gently incorporates a layer of titanium nanoparticles on the surface of the piece. The result: materials with a high aesthetic value, but that combine great functionality and technological advantages such as high resistance to abrasion and corrosion.

Randomness and dynamism
Digital printing techniques have simplified the way to create hyper-realistic decorations so it is difficult to find two pieces exactly alike. Decorative effects that can be achieved by randomly combining tiles with photographic images provide spaces an impressive personality.
