Product> Por qué? Parquet!

A modern twist on a centuries-old tradition, geometric patterns are all the rage in updated materials and color options. Biscuit Patricia Urquiola for Listone Giordano

A completely reimagined parquet flooring system, Biscuit uses six modern rounded shapes in different sizes to allow for endless opportunities of new patterns inspired by classic herringbone that is available in a variety of stains.

Liaison Kelly Wearstler for Ann Sacks

Kelly Wearstler is known for her particular aesthetic of combining raw natural materials with more refined pieces. This collection plays up her love for stone and includes made-to-order tile rugs, which may also be used in custom backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, and showers, in addition to five small- and large-tile off-the-shelf patterns.

Labyrinth Refin Ceramiche

Labyrinth is parquet 2.0—inspired by M. C. Escher drawings, the collection of two patterns, Mirror and Angle, can be rearranged to create endless, mazelike configurations that are meant to evoke the works of Josef and Anni Albers.

Wood Bisazza

Composed of a four-millimeter top layer of European oak mounted on phenolic multilayer laminated birch wood, these wood tiles are incredibly versatile and, given their size and shape (one square, one hexagonal), can easily be paired with other cement tiles.

Etic Pro Atlas Concorde

Restyle Marca Corona

Inspired by age-old wooden tavelle, these ceramic wood tiles truly resemble hardwood. Each tile, available in three color collections, contains a variety of patterns that makes every slab unique. These tiles are highly versatile and, in addition to being ecofriendly, are antislip and resistant to salts, chemicals, and frost.

Shadewood Ceramica Sant’Agostino

This porcelain tile collection comes in six gray hues, including a multicolor diagonal stripe that creates a herringbone pattern. The tiles can withstand quite a bit of wear and are suitable in residential and commercial spaces, indoors and out.

Bring underground mood to your interior

  Ceramiche Refin S.p.A. pulls from the raw, urban street conditions around us to define their 'District' collection - a series of porcelain tiles that translates the textured and crude surfaces that we see outside, for appreciation indoors. Porcelain tiles with finishes reminiscent of asphalt (Road) that combine with the metallic-style vintage materials typical of old-style shops (Garage), as well as distressed woods inspired by velodrome surfaces and the small brickwork found on indoor walls (Track). Collectively, ‘District’ is an expression of urban lifestyle that is evident in the busiest of the world’s metropolis’s — from london to new york — taking on the rugged, industrial and underground mood that is projected in these places, and refining them for enhancing your desired space. The result is a complex porcelain tiles collection ideal for bringing a wealth of personal touches to residential settings, or for tiling commercial settings throughout in order to create up-to-the-minute atmospheres with a dynamic personality.

Product> Finds From the Floor at Cersaie 2013

Despite the economic freeze gripping much of Italy, more than 100,000 attendees—50 percent of whom came from outside the country—converged on Bologna for the 2013 edition of Cersaie, the world's largest ceramic tile fair. In addition to daily educational sessions and a keynote from Pritzker Prize winner Rafael Moneo, 900 product exhibitors filled the halls with the newest iterations of stone and tile looks on porcelain and ceramic. Textile-influenced surfaces were particularly prevalent, as were recreations of hand-crafted, custom-made tiles thanks to more affordable production methods. Charme Naturel Cerim Though nearly every company exhibiting at Cersaie 2013 boasted some kind of wood look, Cerim's (above) stood out for its realistic color and graining, and authentically placed embossing. Available in five tones on three differently sized planks, the collection also comes in two finishes for indoor and outdoor flooring applications. Meltin FAP Ceramiche The deeply textured white body wall tile carries movement seamlessly from section to section with a proprietary tone-on-tone grouting system for larger applications like feature walls. A satin finish enhances the curves. Meltin comes in four neutral colorways. Type 32 Lea Cermiche Reminiscent of a traditional herringbone, Type 32 is available in four patterns with cold or warm color accents on four different bases. Its zig-zag pattern can be installed in layouts that enhance its graphic print, or highlight a more traditional wood floor. Patterning is digitally printed on thin, 2-inch-thick long planks that measure 7.8 by 78 inches. Matrix Ceramica Bardelli Matrix was one of several textile-inspired new collections at the fair. Sporting a Chilewich-style weave, the glazed floor tiles measure 20- by 20-inches at approximately a 1/2-inch thickness. Fourteen matte colors play nicely with most wall finishes, and coordinating base trim is also available. Stone Mix Ital Graniti As its name indicates, this collection digitally blends quartzite, slate, travertine, and limestone patterns for a unique stone look across six colorways. Seven rectified and two non-rectified sizes are finished in matte and anti-slip finishes for wall, floor, and outdoor applications. Noor Mirage Noor replicates a unique stone found in the Italian town of Gré, just off the shores of Lake Iséré. From digital scans, Mirage replicated the stone in three shades across nine formats for walls, indoor flooring, raised floors, and outdoor pavers. For added wear, Noor features through-body color and patterns that differ only slightly from the surface pattern. Basic Naxos Bolstering a trend at the show toward customization, the Basic collection of wall tile appears hand textured in the fashion of Japanese raku ceramics but is extruded along a factory line. Available in six colors on a 13- by 38-inch tile, a line of coordinating decorative panels and mosaics is also available. Creative Concrete Imola Ceramica Delicate texture evokes a combination of concrete treatments, all realized simultaneously on a porcelain tile. Rectified formats come in five different sizes, as well as a non rectified 17-inch tile. Five neutral colors are available in a natural or more deeply textured surface finish. Frame Up Refin Following up to its Frame collection with Studio FM Milano is a collection of even larger graphics for tile. For Vanguard Circle and Square, 18th century Emilia majolica tiles receive a Midcentury avant-garde twist in interchangeably large and small patterns. Both patterns come on a 24-inch porcelain format. Unique Collection Novabell Group Smooth texture over solid tones produces a suede-effect on the Unique Collection. Designed to coordinate with bas relief and patterned designs within the collection, 10- by 30-inch tiles can also be combined with trim and mosaic components. Levitas Cerdisa At 40 by 120 inches and only 5.6 mm in thickness, this large format, thin porcelain tile clads outdoor decking, facades, and more with the fortification of a fiberglass sheet. Available in six neutral colorways, the collection can be specified in a natural or lappato finish for interiors, or an anti-slip finish for outdoors. Custom Hexagonal Tiles Tagina Developed for Misericordia di Terranuova Bracciolini in central Italy, Tagina worked with architect Marco Casamonti over a three-month period for a custom facade treatment. The hand-pressed hexagonal tiles will be finished with an ochre glaze that naturally resists fading in the harsh Tuscan sun.
