Authentic and characterful recreations of natural stone, granite and marble are delivered forcefully in the new Uniquestone range from Ceramiche Piemme. As with best of today’s stone-effect tiles, this range is designed to furnish interiors and outdoor environments with elegance, while at the same time providing a product that is easy to lay and maintain.
Previewed in the USA at Coverings, Uniquestone is fruit of Piemme’s continuous research into materials and digital technologies. The natural finish, for example, recreates in detail the textured effect of the various minerals that inspire it, while the polished version adds elegance and brilliance. The collection includes five colours – Silk, Sand, Silver, Titanium and Nite – spanning from the light Silk shade through to the darker Nite colour.
The through-body porcelain tiles are available in a variety of modular formats (300 by 600, 600 by 600, 800 by 800 and 600 by 1,200mm) and include the decorative element Chevron (100 by 530mm) designed to create a herringbone pattern.
The range also offers three 3D wall coverings that reproduce the effect of hand-processed stone: Level, a large tile (600 by 1,200mm) featuring the four textured effects that inspired Uniquestone; Iced which recreates the veined effect of stone with a fine polished surface, and Maya with a geometric design, available in ton-sur-ton or in a range of shades that can easily be matched.
