Porcelain stoneware

Browsing through the new trends, we have identified a new type of wood being chosen by a large number of architects and interior designers: dead wood, which died on the tree.‎
This type of wood derives its appeal above all from the mystery of its origins, and also from its distinctive colouring.‎ We therefore started an investigation of the natural processes that dead wood undergoes to acquire all its complex colours and patterning.‎
Product:
The colouring of dead wood is created not by the type of wood and the way it is varnished but by oxidation, which creates completely original, unique shades.‎ Different oxidations produce different colours.‎
We therefore imagined a porcelain floor covering created by bringing together lots of different types of wood which had acquired the same colour shades by undergoing the same oxidation process.‎ In our slabs, we recreated the effects caused by rainwater seepage, the passing seasons, sun and salt spray.‎
We chose oak, sessile oak, frakè, olive, walnut, American walnut, chestnut and spruce trunks and under-bark spruce, all very different but united by the colour shades decreed by time.‎
Surface:
Part of the mysterious appeal of dead wood is also due to its raw, bare surface.‎ We have studied its details, and transferred it to a ceramic covering material, retaining its modern planed finish and raw tactile effect, while making it easily cleanable and convenient.‎
For Wood Talk, we have developed an immutable high-tech finish: the patterning is impressed directly onto the porcelain tile body and protected by a blend of carefully selected grits, specifically for zones with heavy traffic.‎
We have also decided to extend the assortment with a new modular size which is the combination of a large number of large and small sizes, as if we had put together all the pieces produced when the log was sawn, throwing nothing away.‎
Patterning:
For the various types of wood, we selected images from dozens of square metres of whole boards.‎
For the under-bark spruce, we took more than sixty photographs, combined to create a flat image of the circular log.‎
We hope that Wood Talk will inspire the same emotions as you as it has in us.‎
