Casalgrande Padana’s long-established tradition of research and experimentation has given rise to the new Kerinox collection ofmetal-effect porcelain stoneware tiles Kerinox. The vibrant soul of aged metal and the soft, shaded brushstrokes of cement join forces with the undefinable texture of metal oxides and the chrome reflections of steel, creating surprising, original effects on the surface. The different reflections of the light turn apparent imperfections into decorative patterns able to shape ever-changing tactile sensations and a new, sophisticated material quality.
Available in four colour variants (Antracite, Bianco, Grigio and Sabbia), in two formats (60x60 cm e 90x90 cm) and three surfaces that complement one another (natural, lapped and polished), the hallmark of the new Kerinox collection is the sophisticated metal effect of the ceramic surface.
The darker shades of Antracite and Grigio highlight the shiny metal reflections, bringing a dynamic, glittering look to the surfaces, while the lighter Bianco and Sabbia shades bring a touch of brightness, with their shining reflections and surprising light effects.
From the kitchen to the bedroom, as well as the living room and the bathroom, metal-effect porcelain stoneware can be laid throughout your home.
