Limpha: the evergreen porcelain stoneware that purifies the air
March 8, 2019
Limpha is the new collection of wood-effect porcelain stoneware from Casalgrande Padana. Inspired by climbing plants, it’s the perfect way to transform a simple covering into a tribute to natural beauty.
We’ve taken the beauty of nature and channelled it into a tile.
Hedera Arborea is used in the world of cosmetics on account of its dermo-cosmetic and purifying properties.
Our Limpha tiles do the same thing for the air that Hedera Arborea does for the skin.
With its small white flowers and sophisticated scent, jasmine is a treat for the eyes and a delight for the senses. In ancient times, it was much sought-after as an elixir of sensuality, while nowadays it’s widely used in aromatherapy.
Hedera Helix is the most romantic of the climbing plants, not just because of its symbolism - heavily linked to love and loyalty - but also because it instantly conjures up images of castle walls and elegant country residences.
Limpha Coral Rose
A multitutde of different flowers, colours and meanings. But the rose is the queen of them all. Loved since ancient times, the rose is still to this day considered the greatest flower of them all. Every variety conceals a different meaning and offers unique sensations. Coral Rose adds a touch of colour to the Limpha collection, providing a great way of adding depth to outdoor and indoor surfaces in the form of a hi-tech, sustainable material that’s been designed to improve the lives of humans and benefit the environment. There are countless possible applications and uses – almost as many as the infinite colour nuances hidden inside every rose.
Limpha Coral Rose
Resistant and irresistible
Limpha is inspired by the leaves and climbing plants that adorn and enhance otherwise anonymous walls, giving identity and beauty to the buildings they adopt.
Thanks to its optimal versatility of use and unparalleled technical properties (resistance to freezing, abrasions, wear and tear and bending, plus colour resistance to light), the wood-effect porcelain stoneware in the Limpha collection is perfect for both internal and external spaces, whether in new constructions or restoration projects: from private residential to public construction via renovation projects involving offices, schools and gyms. It's the ideal way to enhance anonymous and obsolete surfaces, with Casalgrande Padana’s porcelain stoneware restoring their personality while improving performance and cutting maintenance costs.
Imagine how stunning Limpha porcelain stoneware tiles would look on the terrace of a restaurant, the walls of a store or office, in a reception area or even in a swimming pool.
In order to ensure aesthetic continuity between spaces, the Limpha porcelain stoneware collection features four end-matched panels in each style.
Limpha is the ideal choice for large-scale spaces!
Bios Self-Cleaning® : the porcelain stoneware tiles that reduce pollution
An injection of beauty and a wall that helps to improve our quality of life by reducing pollution and improving air quality.
The large tiles from the Limpha porcelain stoneware collection uses Bios Self Cleaning® technology to reduce causes of pollution present in the air during sunlight hours, as well as working to decompose the dirt left on the surface of the tiles, thus allowing rainwater to wash the tiles clean.
A 1000 square metre surface covered with Bios Self-Cleaning® tiles would purify the air as much as a forest the size of a football pitch would, eliminating the nitrogen oxides given off over the course of an entire day by 70 cars.
Limpha Arborea, Gelsomino
This technology is cleared inspired by the natural world. It delivers cleaner air, enabling us to have green vertical walls without maintenance problems.
We didn’t just choose the green of climbing plants as a decoration - we also wanted to recreate the function performed by trees: absorbing carbon dioxide and pollution and giving off oxygen, thus making a tangible contribution to the improvement of air quality.
The covering is a tribute to nature and those “green walls” that cover some buildings. Quite simply, this ceramic collection has environmental protection in its DNA.
Come and check out Casalgrande Padana’s innovative covering solutions, which allow us to install ceramic materials with elevated functional attributes (including large-size tiles) while at the same time boosting the thermo-hygrometric qualities of the walls.
Drawing on the huge wealth of expertise it's built up over nearly 60 years of success on the international stage, the Casalgrande Padana research centre has developed products and technical solutions destined for areas of application including: ventilated walls, facade cladding with ceramic tiles and insulation systems using thin tiles.
