If any further evidence was needed that worktop and furniture applications of XXL tiles will move centre stage at Cersaie 2018, Tile Addict draws readers attention to the Aqua Maximum collection by Fiandre Architectural Surfaces, a brand of the Iris Ceramica Group.
One of the leaders in the production of high-end full-body porcelain stoneware, Fiandre presented Aqua Maximum at the last Salone del Mobile in Milan. Billed as a revolution in the world of wellness, this range of customisable shower trays and washbasins perfectly matches Fiandre’s Maximum Extralite bathroom surfaces. So, Fiandre will be yet another powerful brand promoting the concept of a total look for bathrooms. By combining flooring, wall tiling, and bathroom furnishings, the goal is an environment with aesthetic continuity.
All the furniture items from the Aqua Maximum collection are unique pieces that are assembled manually in a process that oozes craftsmanship. Each type of washbasin, top or shower tray can be made in different standard sizes: from integrated single or double washbasins, including up and down waterfall versions, to pedestal washbasins, and single or double shower trays. These designs are perfect for both private homes and the luxury contract market.
In modern house design, bathrooms are increasingly seen as being among the most important rooms in the home. Havens of style, relaxation and peace, they are one place where self-indulgence is encouraged. They are also spaces that can project the personality and aspirations of the home owner. Aesthetics, functionality and practicality were thus central to the design of Aqua Maximum. The core of each element is made up of a high-density structure that ensures great rigidity and waterproofing, while all visible surfaces are lined with Maximum Extralite porcelain stoneware. Thanks to this technology, the pieces deliver all the aesthetic and technical qualities of stoneware, such as scratch resistance, unalterable surface colour, and ease of maintenance.
Taking the requested model as a starting point, the desired effect can be achieved by using a selected Maximum material: marble (Marmi Maximum), stone (Megalith Maximum or Quietstones Maximum), concrete (Aster Maximum), resin (Hq.Resin), fossilised wood (Eminent Wood), and monochrome (Datauni Maximum).
