Supreme tiles result from Casalgrande Padana’s research. They draw inspiration from rock salt crystallisation, replicating its colours, texture, and shine. Nature’s masterpieces created by sedimentary rocks around the world have inspired the new Supreme porcelain stoneware tile collection. A fascinating journey to the centre of the earth to discover the colours and tactile features of rock crystal, an element known since ancient times for its many benefits.
The Supreme collection comes in four colours (Grey, Dark, Sand, and Taupe) and various formats and finishes. More in detail, the 30x60 cm format is 9 mm thick and features a natural or Grip anti-slip finish.
The 60x60 cm and 60x120 cm formats come with a natural, polished, or Grip anti-slip finish, while the 120x120 cm format has a natural or polished finish as the large 120x278 cm format (6 mm thick). The polished finish further emphasises the latter’s striking beauty.
The 26.5x56 cm decorative mosaic tiles complete the range. They come in a random mix of the Supreme collection’s colours, creating abstract patterns that add character to any space.
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.
The elegant tiles from the new Supreme collection are perfect for the floors and walls of residential, public and commercial buildings, the contract furnishing, wellness, and hospitality sectors, and even luxury yachts. Casalgrande Padana’s new collection is flexible and versatile. It’s ideal for creating exclusive furnishings and tiling accent walls, partition walls, sliding doors, countertops, cabinetry, and tables.
Moreover, the large formats and anti-slip finish make Supreme tiles perfect for creating a visual continuity between floors and walls and interiors and exteriors.
