Wall/floor tiles with resin effect
A collaboration between designer Marco Piva and Casalgrande Padana, Shades is a sophisticated decorative process stemming from the “material design” concept. Applied to ceramic surfaces, it enriches the Resina collection in Black, Grey and Tobacco and in the 90x180, 90x90, 45x90 and 45x45 cm formats. Shades experiments with different tones to create a sense of depth and volume on the flat surface of the ceramics. Marco Piva’s creative process – which in recent times has drawn on a mix of techniques including pencil, watercolour, tempera and acrylic – aims to use the surface of an artwork to create a new kind of material achieved by colour layering and interaction. Shades experiments with measured colour saturation and contrasts stemming from the material itself. Ultimately, the result is an elegant, artistic creation applied to a technically superior product. As with all that Casalgrande Padana produces, the Resina collection is an environmentally friendly line that guarantees both an original aesthetic and decorative appearance as well as technological attributes that ensure respect for the environment. The company has always worked hard to develop innovative technology capable of producing materials that combine high performance with low environmental impact, as confirmed by their ISO 14001 and Emas c ertifications.
