Marble effect: Marmosmart, Marmoker, and Onici
by Sara Costi
Casalgrande Padana’s porcelain stoneware is as precious, long-lasting, and beautiful as marble, which the ancient Greeks called “shining stone”. Now, Casalgrande Padana’s three new collections – Marmoker, Marmosmart and Onici – are giving a new twist to the timeless charm of these iridescent surfaces. Each tile feature multi-shaped veining in different colours, which create a unique marble effect that brightens any setting.
Outstanding technical features and the vast array of colours, sizes and surfaces make marble-effect porcelain stoneware perfect not only for tiling floors and walls but also for covering bathroom and kitchen countertops and furnishings, such as wall units, tables, coffee tables, and shelves. This material is extremely versatile and can be used indoors and outdoors, in private homes, public spaces, or even luxury boats alike.
Large porcelain stoneware tiles and the new 90x270 cm format allow for sparser joints compared to smaller tiles, thereby adding visual impact. Their appealing textural effects make them the ideal choice for both large architectural projects and residential settings.
Marmoker: the precious colour effects of marble
The new Marmoker range recreates the shades, veining, transparency, texture, shine and nuances of marble, giving a new twist to this material, each tile of which is unique. This wide range now includes new shades: the timeless charm of Calacatta Extra, Titan White, and Canova, with the same classic veining on a white background that ignited the creativity of Tuscan master sculptors; the delicate shades of White Musk, Fior di Pesco, and Oyster Grey; the brighter tones of Caribbean Green, Brown Forest, and Night Storm; the contrasts between Orange Black and Rosso Francia, and the darker shades of Ossidiana.
The range includes 44 textures, 12 sizes (from 29.5x59 cm to 160x320 cm), 3 thicknesses (from 6 mm to 10 mm), 3 finishes (natural, honed and polished), and a sophisticated array of colours. This way, architects and interior designers can unleash their expressive potential and creativity and explore the new frontiers of luxury and create settings with a strong visual impact.
Tiles from the Marmoker range are elegant and sophisticated, perfect for indoor and outdoor flooring and wall coverings. They can be used in residential buildings, large commercial settings, public buildings, urban furnishings, and even the most demanding modern buildings.
