Perfect imperfection sets the tone for Piemme

Perfect imperfection sets the tone for Piemme

February 2020

At Cersaie, Ceramiche Piemme presented Glitch designed by Benoy; the Materia collection, and the  new Piemme Project Solutions service for architects and contractors.

Glitch by Benoy is a new collection of porcelain stoneware tiles that picks up the perfect imperfection design trend, here expressed in eight  colours in various sizes.  Glitch focuses on the distinctive irregularities of concrete surfaces, such as cracks, films, scratches and wear, and reinterprets them for ceramic tiles.  The result is a contemporary collection ideal for both homes and commercial locations.

Materia is a rage with unusual surfaces that merge metal, Corten steel, stone, and ceramic in a refined, contemporary look.  Starting out with different metals, oxidised or glossy; natural stone and ceramic, Piemme’s R&D team has created a new material dimension.

Piemme Project Solutions offers the option to install outdoor pavings in an extra-thick 20mm option, providing new choices for indoor or outdoor raised floors (loose-lay or with pedestal), and floating floors.

Also new from Piemme, the Venetian Marble range combines the technical performance of the latest generation of porcelain stoneware with the aesthetics of the Venetian terrazzo flooring.  Venetian Marble Collection is available in four shades - Rainbow, Cloud, Fog, and Storm - and two sizes (600 by 1,200 and 600 by 600mm).

Also worth a second look is Ageless; a range  inspired by the aesthetics of industrial concrete resin.  Using modern digital technologies, Piemme has reproduced the typical directional streaks associated with the manual or mechanized laying of mortar.  

Available in natural and polished finishes, this new contract collection combines industrial aesthetics with high technical performance and guarantees high resistance to daily stress in residential, commercial and large public areas.
