WIDE&STYLE By ABK
Indoor porcelain stoneware wall tiles
WIDE&STYLE is the new on-demand collection from ABK Ceramiche bringing together the qualities of large panels and high-resolution digital decoration. Its unique blend of innovative technologies and creativity lends a distinctive, personal look to any project.
ABK underscores its Style with offerings spanning geometries, floral patterns and the world of luxury. To emphasise the decorative potential and practicality of ceramic surfaces, the ABK Style Department has created a series of graphic designs to be coloured on the tiles inspired by the viral phenomenon of Colouring Books.
The WIDE&STYLE collection features a kaleidoscope of graphic effects that stand out for their taste, style and inspiration. Based on the creativity of young graphic artists, illustrators and product designers, these surfaces are capable of transforming spaces with an artistic and original touch. In particular, the designers from Officinarkitettura drew inspiration from the history of Italian architecture and reinterpreted the details in a contemporary style. The style of Margherita Leonardi recreates the traditions of far-off locations in an utterly contemporary mood; the neo-minimalism of Riccardo Palazzi stands out for its two-dimensionality and creative use of colour; and an original reinterpretation of the patterns of classical architecture underpins the work of Marco Taietta.
WIDE&STYLE is part of the large-format tile collection produced by ABK using CONTINUA+ technology in sizes up to a record 160x320 cm. The revolutionary dry pressing system produces high-quality soft-touch porcelain surfaces with exceptional technical performance. In particular, these tiles are tough, lightweight (thanks to their thickness of just 7 mm) and easy to work with. The WIDE&STYLE panels can be produced either in the cold-pressed Digit version or in the Digit+ version which includes a firing process to make them resistant to chemicals and UV radiation, ideal for use in any kind of residential or commercial space, from bathrooms through to exterior façades.
Along with the material’s technical qualities, ABK adds all the exclusivity of a new on-demand service. Customers intending to personalise their interior design projects will receive a computer rendering based on the submitted dimensions along with the instructions for cutting and correctly installing the ceramic panels. WIDE&STYLE solutions can also be easily combined with ABK floor tiles to complete any project flawlessly.
