Alaska is a selection of eight wood types, each featuring a different dominant colour and specific grain, leading to wide, versatile design options.
The soft, elegant finish of some versions contrasts with the rustic, more worn finish of others to make Alaska ideal for interpreting the varying stylistic demands of contemporary design, thanks also to the 65 by 400mm sestino format, the exclusive new CIR concept that offers extraordinary versatility.
Kentucky narrates the colour and worn patina of aged wood in ceramic, with a decidedly vintage style. It is offered by CIR in four colour systems, ready to take on the challenges of living in contemporary style in the big city. The originality of Kentucky is enhanced by the vast range of laying solutions made possible by its three tile sizes: the very modern and versatile 65 by 400mm sestino, the larger 150 by 900mm slat, and the original 300 by 400mm mesh-backed mosaic.
