Dallas — Marazzi USA announced it has launched six new collections exuding international influence: Caicos glass mosaics, Treverkchic, Fontanella and Lounge14 color body porcelain, San Savino porcelain and Livigno ceramic tiles.
Concrete, glass, wood and woven textures are seen throughout the collections as stand-alone or even mixed mediums, offering a range of sizes from large format planks to detailed mosaics, presenting fresh and unique options for customers.
“Like our brand, these collections reflect old-world European roots with a uniquely American twist,” said Marianne Cox, director of brand marketing, Marazzi USA. “We are always looking for ways to surprise and delight our customers with original and on-trend choices and we believe these deliver.”
Caicos glass mosaic tiles feature brilliant mottled colors of sand and sea. Inspired by traditional art glass, the dynamic colors are introduced while the glass is in a molten state, so they are swirled, not static. Six color combinations are included in the series: Baby Beach (olive), Blue Beach (teal), Crane Beach (blue/brown), Eagle Beach (tiger’s eye), Grace Beach (gray/blue) and Shoal Bay (beige/taupe). The collection is available in 1 x 1 and 1 x 4 interlocking glass combinations.
Fontanella color body porcelain draws on the growing trend of blended mediums on a single surface, a mix of stone and wood seamlessly integrates the finest characteristics of each medium into a variable landscape. Tiles feature stone, wood or mixed visuals – no two installations will be the same, according to the company. Color choices are Brianza (beige), Milan (gray) and Monza (white). The collection includes sizes of 20 x 20 slabs and 18 x 36 planks. These tiles contain 21% recycled content and has a low life-cycle cost. The collection also meets DCOF minimum 0.42 Wet criteria for slip resistance, making it suitable for interior and exterior applications.
Livigno ceramics capture the look of primal weathered stone in modern, easy-to-install, easy-to-clean ceramic tile engineered for interior residential installations. The visual depicts the natural fractures and fissures of natural stone. The collection is available in three colors: Grigio (grey), Oro (golden brown) and Noce (walnut). Available in 12 x 12 and 18 x 18, the collection is accompanied by a 2 x 2 mesh-mounted mosaic sheet and 3 x 12 bullnose trim.
Lounge14 color body porcelain conveys the sense of old-world textiles with contemporary color body porcelain via 3–D digital print technology. Four colors are available: Cosmopolitan (beige), Martini (black), Sidecar (gray), and Spritzer (white).
Sizes for this collection include: 9 x 36, 18 x 36 and 12 x 24 field tile, 12 x 12 mosaics (comprised of 2 x 2 squares), 12 x 24 random strip mosaics, 3 x 24 bullnose trim, 6 x 12 cove base and 1 x 6 out angles. A 12 x 24 decorative inlay features right-angle graphic combinations for each color in the series.
San Savino porcelain proves the growing sentiment that stone is not the only option when it comes to tile options. Available in three shade ranges: Greve (gray), Pienza (beige) and Volterra (charcoal) and in large planks (12 x 24 and 18 x 36) and squares (20 x 20), as well as mesh-mounted 2 x 2 mosaics. Bullnose, cove base and out angle trims are also available.
Treverkchic color body porcelain takes authentic visuals and textures and long plank sizes translate the warmth of handcrafted wood. These close-grain natural walnut and teak looks were developed with 3-D digital print technology ensuring no two tiles would be the same. Three widths and an impressive 48-inch plank length elevate the collection above current wood-look offerings. Colors include: Africa, Americano, Francese, and Italiano available in wide-plank sizes of 6 x 48, 9 x 48 and 12 x 48.
