Kerinox Casalgrande Padana: soft brushstrokes and bright metal-effect reflections

Kerinox Casalgrande Padana: soft brushstrokes and bright metal-effect reflections

by Sara Costi

Casalgrande Padana’s long-established tradition of research and experimentation has given rise to the new Kerinox collection of metal-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.

 

The Kerinox ceramic tiles in the colour Bianco, with the bright, lapped finish, envelop the whole setting in a suspended sensation of rare beauty; the wall, with a partial opening, maintains visual contact with the rest of the living room, bringing a particularly striking sense of brightness and a light design touch to the entire environment. The result is a modern, open-plan living room, ready to take on board the demands of modern lifestyles.

Simple lines with a metropolitan, urban flavour bring character to this original living room, where the flooring, continued from the indoors to the outside, is very much the distinctive feature: thanks to the natural surface for the indoors and the anti-slip surface for the outdoors, it is possible to create an interesting, appealing total look effect.

In the new Kerinox metal-effect collection, a surprising look with a modern, sophisticated appeal and a wealth of tactile sensations teams with excellent technical characteristics, making it suitable for any setting or sector: from residential buildings to commercial architecture, as well as high-traffic areas such as hotels and restaurants.
