Porcelain stoneware wall/floor tiles with granite effect
Elegant and sophisticated, the NATIVE collection from ABK is inspired by the primordial appeal of porphyry quarried from the mountains of Italy’s Trentino region. It is an agglomerate-effect stone with a distinctive colour that stands out for its subtle, homogeneous texture.
The collection is part of a broader trend towards interior design applications involving the use of fine-grained stones such as granites, including varieties that are most commonly used in outdoor applications. ABK’s research efforts have led to the development of a textured but soft-touch surface that is also available in a honed finish for original and contemporary compositional solutions on both floors and walls.
The NATIVE range comes in five colours. The first, RED, reproduces the warm amber shades of Trentino porphyry and is ideal for use in many different architectural contexts. The collection is also available in various shades of grey: FOREST, an intense colour with woody green notes; ASH, the lightest and most luminous shade; and FOG, a mid-grey tone with mottled rust-coloured effects. EBONY is the darkest colour in the range with a warm, elegant intensity.
The collection is complemented by the MARK decorated wall tile available in 30x120 cm and 60x120 cm sizes and the colours Ebony and Fog and characterised by a three-dimensional effect texture over a smooth surface. To allow for seamless aesthetic continuity between interiors and exteriors, ABK has also created a 20 mm thick Grip R11 version available in the new 90x90 cm size.
