Cotto d’Este, custom-made floors and covering
Colors, finishes and materials make the customization of Floors and covering by Cotto d’Este possible. All for a highly thick porcelain stoneware
- also available in the 20 mm version – to be combined with the ultra-thin slabs in Kerlite, an exclusive material able to provide an astonishing visual impact. The final result is not only an aesthetically valuable one, but also one of high performance, since floors by Cotto d’Este feature excellent physical and technical properties, able to grant high durability over time. Among all covering
by this brand, some are utterly groundbreaking like Wonderwall
, a collection of ultra-thin laminated porcelain tiles in Kerlite that also contain fiberglass. This is an exclusive covering, thin, mimicking a wallpaper but with a better material performance that also withstands moisture, making of it a great product also for external spaces such as the garden or patio. Bluestone Evolution – Rockstone
is an amazingly beautiful floor, suitable for residential purposes and public spaces such as bars and restaurants alike. Its pattern stems from the Pierre Bleu, a stone typically found in Belgium with its characteristic crinoids and veins. This product embodies the usual lightness by Cotto d’Este next to a great resistance thanks to the fiberglass that is added to and strengthens the Kerlite. Its 20 mm thickness makes this product also very sturdy and durable.
The Vanity line
was specifically conceived by Cotto d’Este for wall covering
, in the Bianco Statuario color. This ceramic surface perfectly simulates marble bringing a touch of elegance into any environment. Naturally antimicrobial, this covering recalls the classical culture and is ideal for prestigious and authoritative ambiances.
Cotto d’Este, porcelain stoneware since 1993
Cotto d’Este was established in 1993 in Sassuolo, at the initiative of Paolo Mussini, the company founder and CEO. As a person born and raised in the productive district of this area, Mussini had no hesitance in finding out his vocation. Also thanks to the support of his father Giulio, who founded Panaria Industrie Ceramiche
in 1974, Paolo started off his entrepreneurial adventure already with a rich knowledge that led him to enter the international market of covering and porcelain stoneware floors
. Mussini’s vision stems from the concept that his products have to be beautiful, of a high quality and never standard. He has a true vocation that is to offer customers floors and covering that enhance the space, play a protagonist role and define the personality of the people living in the house. This is made possible by a choice of excellent raw materials, worked with the newest technologies to find novel chromatic effects.
As of today and as a member of the Panaria group, Cotto d’Este is a reference for architects and designers who, from everywhere in world, seek a product of the Made in Italy excellence for their customers. An example of this is Lithos Desert
, a stone-effect floor covering that carries all the features that ensure health and cleanness thanks to a special treatment that makes it antibacterial.
