BUILDTECH 2.0 By Floor Gres
Porcelain stoneware wall/floor tiles with concrete effect
“Buildtech/” by Floor Gres, a collection of fine porcelain stoneware surfaces capable of dialoguing directly with the architect, now evolves into “Buildtech/ 2.0”. The collection expands its range via a new line focusing on the vigorous partnership between the neutrality of concrete and the decided character of saturated colours, intended for the exteriors of buildings.
“Buildtech/ 2.0” combines the theme of bare concrete (the distinctive feature of the “Buildtech/” series and typical of the Brutalist movement) with that of colour, to acquire a more modern personality.
The four colours, White, Bone, Mud and Coal, in solid colour and gritted version, are completed by the same colours in concrete version in the 10 mm thickness, or 20 mm for outdoor use, and in the Magnum version in 6 mm thickness in the 60x120, 120x120 and 120x240 cm sizes.
The collection comprises a vast range of surfaces (natural R10, soft R9, R+PTV R10 class B and structured) as well as 10 particularly intense solid colours that enhance its "brutality" in 6 mm thickness and modular sizes from 60x120 to 160x320 cm.
The concrete-look variants are in fine porcelain stoneware and integrate with the sizes and thicknesses already in the range: traditional sizes of 60x120, 80x80, 40x80, 60x60 and 30x60 cm, large slabs of 120x240, 120x120 and 60x120, and 60x120 cm and 60x60 cm for the 20 mm thickness. The 10 mm decors also reference the existing range: 3x3-30x30 cm mosaic, 21x40 cm offset strip module and 7.5x15-30x30 cm brickwork tile. In addition, “Buildtech/ 2.0” features Magnum decors: 7.5x7.5-30x30 cm mosaic and 7.5x15-30x30 cm brickwork tile. The coloured tiles, on the other hand, are manufactured in large-size decorated porcelain stoneware: 160x320, 120x280, 120x240, 160x160, 120x120 and 60x120 cm.
