PIETRE DI PARAGONE
Porcelain stoneware wall/floor tiles with stone effect
The Pietre Native collection is inspired by the rarest and most precious natural stone, faithfully reproducing its surfaces, veining and colours. Nature and culture meet up in this collection, able to satisfy the international taste and fulfil the most up to the minute requirements for resistance, performance and ease of maintenance. Produced in porcelain stoneware, the line is the result of avant-garde production technology enhanced by a search for aesthetics and stylistic innovation, guaranteeing perfect synthesis between structural and aesthetic quality. Its high performance and huge layout possibilities make the Pietre Native series the ideal solution for floorings and wall coverings, for both interiors and exteriors in all sectors: from residential building to commercial architecture, to urban furnishing and renovation works.
The uniqueness of each stone as a point of reference, the exclusive identity of each block as a source of inspiration, the colours and one-off images created by each slab as a tool for design and composition. The Old Continent provides the conceptual foundations and splendour of Pietre di Paragone, the collection of porcelain stoneware tiles that evoke the natural world, a world untouched by urbanisation. A world of unique materials that carry within them the traces of ancient memory, of history that can never be repeated but that must be handed down and brought up to date with contemporary flair.
Today, thanks to Pietre di Paragone, our gaze returns to our land, to stones that are often forgotten or barely known, yet no less fine than precious marble or exotic materials.
An ever-present in architecture over the centuries, the materials providing the inspiration for the collection have changed the appearances of our cities - let alone of our buildings - and made a notable contribution to raising the qualitative bar of common architecture, as well as grand projects.
This elegant and versatile collection provides a precious medium for designers and architects to create flooring and cladding of great charm and aesthetic value, with all of the top-quality technological attributes indicative of Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware: high resistance to use, clashes, slipping, stains and sudden temperature changes, even in the most extreme situations and circumstances.
Available in a wide range of colours and a choice of three finishes (natural, lapped and outdoor), the tiles are also available in large 60x120 and 60x60 cm formats, enabling you to create infinite combinations to decorate interior and exterior flooring and cladding, raised walkways, ventilated walls or tile façades.
The Pietre di Paragone collection is also available in Bios Antibacterial, with certified antibacterial properties, and Bios Self-Cleaning®, which features impressive self-cleaning properties and reduces pollutants.
