Italian brand Marazzi has presented five collections on Dezeen Showroom of state-of-the-art ceramic and porcelain tiles, including antibacterial tiles designed to resemble wood floorboards and high-gloss stone-effect tiles.
Marazzi has launched Oltre, a porcelain tile designed to appear as oak floorboards. The collection features an interlocking pattern system that emulate the look of grain on timber floorboards.
The tiles, which are available in four colours including white, natural, sand and caramel, are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors.
They come with an ultra-matt finish, a slip-resistant coating and an antibacterial treatment to enhance cleanliness.
Also suitable for indoor and outdoor use is the Carácter tile collection. The tiles are made of porcelain – 40 per cent of which has been recycled – but have an understated stone effect.
This is created through a mix of neutral-coloured pebbles in varying shapes and sizes.
Despite the luminous finish, the tiles all feature Marazzi’s StepWise coating, which creates an anti-slip surface. The collection is available in six colours, all ranging in shades of grey and beige.
Crogiolo Rice is a series of handmade modular tiles with a high-gloss finish and natural variation. The tiles are informed by traditional majolica tiles that often depict plant patterns and have a dense glaze.
Despite their irregular surfaces, the edges of the tiles are straight, which allows for a tessellated instalment.
Available in three sizes, the tiles can be arranged in complementary compositions or mixed up. They come in a palette of white and off-white hues, as well as three designs that feature blue nature-inspired motifs.
Also part of the wider Crogiolo tile collection is the Crogiolo Lume range, which is also modelled on the handmade majolica tiles native to the Mediterranean.
The glazed tiles are recommended for use on walls, but can also be used on floors in spaces with low-level traffic such as private residences.
The tiles, which are frostproof and resistant to abrasion, come in an array of vivid, mottled colours including green, blue, white, black, musk and greige.
Marazzi has updated its Grande Marble Look collection of porcelain slab tiles, which are designed to mimic the appearance of Venetian terrazzo and marble.
Like the rest of Marazzi’s recent collections featured on Dezeen Showroom, the tiles are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and are skid-resistant.
The tiles feature striking vein and shade variations and are available in a wide range of colours, including deep green and jet black with dark brown veining.
Established in 1935, Marazzi is an Italian ceramic tile manufacturer present in over 140 countries, with flagship stores in Milan, London, Paris, Warsaw and Lyon.
The company provides flooring and wall coverings for bathrooms, kitchens, living spaces, offices and the outdoors. These range in finishes that are designed to resemble wood, concrete, marble and stone effects.
