Casalgrande Padana at Cersaie 2022
Sept. 26, 2022
Casalgrande Padana will be at Cersaie, the world’s largest international exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings, from 26 - 30 September, Pavilion 29, stand A46-C45 at the Bologna Exhibition Centre.
Supreme: the natural shine of salt crystals
Supreme tiles result from Casalgrande Padana’s research. They draw inspiration from rock salt crystallisation, replicating its colours, texture, and shine. Nature’s precious masterpieces from sedimentary rocks from around the world are recreated in the porcelain stoneware tiles from the new Supreme collection. A fascinating journey to the centre of the earth to discover the colours and tactile features of rock crystal, an element used since ancient times for its many benefits. The Supreme collection comes in four colours (Grey, Dark, Sand, and Taupe) and various formats and finishes. The 30x60 cm format is 9 mm thick and features a natural or Grip finish. The 60x60 cm and 60x120 cm formats come with a natural, polished, or Grip finish, while the 120x120 m format has a natural or polished finish as the large 120x278 cm format (6 mm thick). The polished finish further emphasises the latter’s appearance.
Desaturated veining, harmonious crystal lattices, delicate transparencies, and refined details come to life in an elegant palette. The colours range from light shades of the prestigious Fleur de Sel from the Algarve, Portugal, to the greys of Grey Brittany Salt and the black of the Kala Namak South Asian salt rock.
Fusion metal-effect tiles for industrial chic spaces
The new Fusion collection results from Casalgrande Padana’s aesthetic research and technological innovation. It replicates the effects of metal oxidation, chrome plating, and other processes, creating stunning colours and finishes. Fusion comes in six colours (Black, Copper, Graphite, Green, Grey, and White), with a natural finish, and in various formats and thicknesses. The 60x60 cm, 60x120 cm, and 120x120 cm formats are 9 mm thick, while the large 120x278 cm format is 6 mm thick. In addition to their sophisticated colours, Fusion tiles stand out for the typical shine of oxidised metal.
Iridescent accents, modern metal effects, and porcelain stoneware’s outstanding technical features allow these tiles to be used on the floors and walls of any domestic space. They are also perfect for tiling furnishings, countertops, partition walls, and accent walls. Fusion tiles have a great visual impact. As a result, they are ideal for those who love a minimalist interior design style full of character. For example, they are perfect for modern open space living rooms and metropolitan or industrial chic lofts. These beautiful tiles feature pleasant tactile qualities and metal’s aesthetic properties, making them ideal for contemporary projects in the contract furnishing, hospitality, hotel, and retail sectors.
English Wood: the natural elegance of oak-effect porcelain stoneware tiles
Oak wood is synonymous with quality and elegance and has been used since ancient times. Now, the wood obtained from majestic European, American, and Japanese oak trees comes to life in Casalgrande Padana’s new English Wood tile collection. Accentuated veining and a palette of soft, bright colours create a contemporary idea of living and appealing architectural solutions.
The new English Wood collection comes in six colours (Cheshire, Dean, Epping, Galloway, Highland, and Snowdonia) and two formats. The 20x120 cm format is 9 mm thick and has a natural and anti-slip finish. The 40x120 cm format is 20 mm thick and features a Grip finish. This format is only available in the Cheshire, Galloway, and Snowdonia colours.
These tiles’ outstanding technical features and texture that replicates that of pickled oak with its natural, contrasting veining allow for endless creative possibilities. They are perfect for any use and interior design style, classic, modern, glam, you name it. English Wood is the perfect collection for large surfaces in public and commercial spaces in the contract furnishing, wellness, and hospitality sectors, such as the floors of hotels, restaurants, and shops. However, they can also add style and personality to any domestic space.
Era: The charm of stone and the strength of porcelain stoneware
The Era collection results from continuous aesthetic research and advanced technologies and is the latest addition to Casalgrande Padana’s range of stone-effect porcelain stoneware tiles. These modern tiles combine stone’s natural charm and porcelain stoneware’s outstanding technical features, elevating their application potential. Irregular veining, harmonious nuvolato effects, delicate colours, and play of light and shadow emphasise these tiles’ colour and the pleasant tactile quality of their reference material.
The Era collection comes in six colours (Era Bianca, Bruna, Crema, Grigia, Perla, and Pepe) and various formats. The 30x60 cm, 60x60 cm, and 60x120 cm formats are 9mm thick and feature a natural and anti-slip Grip version. The 120x120 cm format is 9 mm thick and has a natural finish. Era’s outdoor version is 20 mm thick and is available in Era Crema, Grigia and Perla. These tiles’ excellent technical features and anti-slip finish make them perfect for colour-coordinated projects with visual continuity between interiors and exteriors.
Stile: All the charm of stone-effect porcelain stoneware tiles
The charm and beauty of natural stone have inspired Stile, Casalgrande Padana’s new porcelain stoneware tile collection that stands out for its sophisticated aesthetics, rich colour palette, and variety of sizes and finishes.
Stile comes in six colours (Beige, Black, French Grey, Pale, Pearl, and White Smoke), six formats (30x60, 60x60, 60x120, 120x120, 45x90, and 90x90 cm), and two thicknesses (9 and 20 mm).

These compact and incredibly wear-resistant stone-like tiles result from cutting-edge technology, making them suitable for any climate and any project, including new and restored commercial and public buildings.
Stile is an elegant and versatile porcelain stoneware tile collection that combines sophisticated beauty, excellent technical features, and a vast array of finishes.
Timeless porcelain stoneware tiles: a modern classic
The past and the future merge to create the new Timeless collection. These tiles give a modern twist to full-body porcelain stoneware, the ageless material that has made Casalgrande Padana’s history. Timeless tiles stand out for their neutral colours, delicate light accents and nuvolato effects, the tactile evenness of their surface, and concrete’s typical trowel effect.
This new collection comes in five colours (Charcoal, Ice, Seal, Taupe, and Thunder), three formats (30x60 cm, 60x60 cm, and 60x120 cm), three finishes (natural, polished, and bushhammered), and a 9.4 mm thickness, except for the 60x60 cm format with a natural finish, which is 14 mm thick.
These tiles are made of innovative double-charge porcelain stoneware with atomised and micronised powders. This way, they mimic concrete’s colour combinations, expanding their scope of application. Timeless tiles ensure a consistent surface and body structure as the colour runs throughout the tile. So, for example, if you removed the superficial layer, you’d discover an identical surface underneath without affecting the tiles’ aesthetics and functionality. Moreover, these tiles withstand significant static and dynamic loads, foot traffic, and continuous vibrations. In addition, Timeless tiles are not affected by moisture, frost, fire, or abnormal temperature fluctuations. As a result, they’re ideal for commercial, industrial, and public places, such as airports, shopping centres, workshops, hospitals, food preparation, chemical and pharmaceutical laboratories, schools, showrooms, stations, supermarkets, offices, and more. But there’s more. The anti-slip finish helps reduce the risk of slipping, making the floors safer.
Terrazzotech: Casalgrande Padana’s new porcelain stoneware tile collection for public and commercial spaces
Casalgrande Padana’s research and experimentation, cutting-edge production process, and technical expertise acquired in its 60 years in the business have led to the creation of Terrazzotech. This new collection for public and commercial spaces has outstanding functionality and mechanical properties. Terrazzotech tiles give a modern twist to Venetian terrazzo floors, one of the most original and renowned Italian creations with centuries of history.
This new collection comes in six colours (Tech Antracite, Argento, Beige, Bianco, Grigio, and Nero), three finishes (natural, polished, and anti-slip bushhammered), three sizes (30x60, 60x60, and 60x120 cm). The tiles are 9.4 mm thick, but the 60x60 cm format with a natural finish is 14 mm thick. The overall pattern is a modern and dynamic jigsaw puzzle created by chips in various shapes and sizes added to the porcelain stoneware mixture.
These double-charge porcelain stoneware with atomised and micronised powders are incredibly wear-resistant. That’s why the Terrazzotech collection is perfect for the floors and walls of public and commercial spaces particularly exposed to stress and wear. It’s also ideal for industrial spaces, such as chemical laboratories requiring chemical and corrosion resistance, and the pharmaceutical and food sectors, which must comply with stringent hygiene standards. Terrazzotech is a collection of full-body tiles, which means that the colour runs throughout the tile, ensuring a consistent surface and body structure. So, for example, if you removed the superficial layer, you’d discover an identical surface underneath without affecting the tiles’ aesthetics and functionality. What’s more, Terrazzotech porcelain stoneware tiles don’t fear moisture, frost, fire, or abnormal temperature fluctuations, making them ideal for commercial, industrial, and public places subject to significant stress. Examples include airports, shopping centres, workshops, hospitals, food preparation, chemical and pharmaceutical laboratories, schools, showrooms, stations, supermarkets, and offices. In addition, the anti-slip Grip finish helps reduce the risk of slipping, making the floors safer.
Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles are made solely with natural raw materials through a closed-cycle manufacturing process where sophisticated antipollution equipment allows all the components to be recycled and reused with substantially zero emissions or dispersions.
Moreover, all Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles are environmentally sustainable, non-allergenic, and antibacterial, thanks to the Bios Antibacterial® technology (available upon request). In addition, they are fire-resistant, easy to lay and clean, hard-wearing, non-absorbent, and feature excellent flexural strength. Their exceptional mechanical strength maintains all their features unchanged over time. As a result, these wood-effect tiles are not affected by temperature fluctuations, whatever the latitude, and never warp. What’s more, porcelain stoneware features high transmittance and thermal conductivity, making it one of the best choices in the event of underfloor heating. Underfloor heating has many advantages and not just from an aesthetic point of view. For example, it spreads heat evenly in all the rooms of the house, preventing mould formation. It also allows for significant energy savings as it integrates into other systems that use renewable and sustainable energy.
