DOLPHIN

Porcelain stoneware wall/floor tiles

Manufacturer ABK Industrie Ceramiche

The DOLPHIN collection by ABK continues the company’s research into wood-effect products inspired by timeworn, visually-striking materials with unusual origins. In this case the source of inspiration is the famous Venetian “briccole”, the mooring posts or so-called “dolphins” used in the lagoon, which need to be replaced periodically once the submerged portions have been damaged due to exposure to salt water.
These posts, named after the dolphins which guide boats into the harbour, are cut into planks with characteristic long, thin cracks caused by the prolonged action of the waves and traces of colour produced by contact with the salty water. These unique details are reproduced with a high degree of realism in porcelain, creating a surface with an original personality that is ideal for highly decorative floors and walls.
DOLPHIN comes in 6 colours (Milk, Clay, Oak, Moon, Grey, Coal) and in the three sizes 40x170 cm, 20x170 cm and 20x120 cm. The creativity and experimentation underpinning this collection can also be used to create customised surfaces consisting of slats and decorative insets with a multicoloured brushed effect. The range also includes the special 20x120 cm aged strip with an antiqued R11 nonslip texture that is particularly suitable for exterior floors, as well as the original 7x28 cm rectified “sestino” format for installation in a herringbone pattern.
The DOLPHIN collection planks from ABK are produced using Auto-Leveling technology. A very small degree of convexity guarantees maximum bonding to the substrate after installation as the tiles self-level under their own weight, ensuring perfect flatness even in the case of dry-set installation.
The DOLPHIN collection boasts a 40% content of recycled material, demonstrating ABK’s continuous focus on sustainable building and its commitment to meeting the requirements of the LEED international rating system (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), which promotes the use of materials with low environmental impact and sustainable building design.
