PLAIN By Ceramiche Refin
Porcelain stoneware wall/floor tiles with concrete effect
Used by the greatest masters of contemporary architecture, concrete is taking a new role, moving from being a construction material to being a surface finish for architectural projects. Plain stems from analysing concrete in this latter, newer function. The collection stands out for slight clouding and more or less marked patterns, light micro-cracks, that usually form when the concrete volume shrinks by effect of thermal excursion and small holes (pitting) formed by air bubbles trapped between the cast and the formwork.
The surface is rich with detailed marks and shades; from a distance it appears as a solid, consistent and compact space.
Concrete is versatile; it comes to life without any shape and because of it provides for countless formal options, from smooth finishes to rough surfaces, with a very diverse aesthetic. A careful research of the many characteristics of this material is the fil rouge to our three solutions, Block, Mold and Plain; these three collections feature different characteristics brought together in the Master Plan.
