Ceramica Colli di Sassuolo is the latest Italian tile brand to feature in Tile Addict’s curated coverage of would-be Coverings exhibitors. We have picked out three ranges from this stylish brand: Kyushu, Blake, and Studio.
One quick glance tells you that Kyushu is absolutely on-trend. It has three of the most sought after attributes in wall tiles today: characterful gloss glazes, harmonious colours, and an elegant strip format. These 8mm thick single fired white body wall tiles come in a 50 by 250mm format. Matt and gloss surface options are available, both with irregular edges.
With its basic shapes and lines Kyushu emphasises light and shadow. The four soft and natural shades seamlessly combine the luxe and matt finishes. This format also offers various laying possibilities. All in all, it’s a very cool range indeed.
An unusually adaptable stone-effect range, Blake offers a choice of basic colours that have the ability of being transformed thanks to different sizes and graphics. This coloured-body porcelain range features the same surface rich in veins or dense in solid colours. The rectified tiles have a natural finish and are available in 600 by 1,200, 800 by 800, 600 by 600, 300 by 600, and 75 by 300mm formats; plus 300 by 300mm mosaic sheets. There is also a 10.5mm thick option in 800 by 800mm.
The Studio range is defined by clean and rigorous lines, and strong decorative nature. This rectified coloured-body porcelain range is available in 900 by 900, 600 by 600, 300 by 600, and 200 by 2300mm; plus 300 by 300mm mosaic sheets. The Studio range reflects the tile market’s continued thirst for Cementine looks: a timeless aesthetic that is finding fresh fans every month.
