Metal-effect tiles by Italgraniti recreate in a surprising way the suggestive shine of oxidised metal sheets, together with its typical tone-on-tone shading and cloudiness. An unparalleled degree of realism, enhanced by the large dimensions of the available sizes, makes our metal-effect porcelain stoneware a perfect surface for all interior design projects that aim to recreate industrial-metropolitan atmospheres.
Metal-effect porcelain stoneware floors feature a unique appeal. Chroming, oxidation, dripping and polishing processes, sometimes combined with signs of wear, offer a range of visual effects that give the ceramic surface an unprecedented decorative strength, making it the absolute star of the room. It is therefore no coincidence that in recent years the metal-effect flooring has attracted increasing attention from planners and designers.
Metal-effect porcelain stoneware is now a fundamental design tool for creating private and public spaces with a post-industrial fascination, inspired by the lofts and open spaces typical of large cities: modern spaces essentially decorated, with simple, clean line furniture, which obviously prefer large sized tiles. These visually and tactilely evocative surfaces combine elegance and character, essentiality and avant-garde, offering architecture and home decoration porcelain stoneware collections that are innovative in terms of both design and technical content.
Metal-effect tiles by Italgraniti are the result of in-depth aesthetic research conducted on real metal sheets subjected to various chemical-physical treatments. They express the most sophisticated and exclusive identity of metal through vital design surfaces that seem to feature a constantly changing colour. In this way, our catalogue inspired by metal surfaces allows all the nuances of the urban-industrial look to be interpreted, both in residential settings and for creating public premises that will leave a lasting impression.
Not only for public areas
