Concrete is one of interior designers’ favourite materials. Due to its industrial, contemporary connotations and its tactile nature, it is able to give design schemes an appealing metropolitan character. In addition, the industrial trend in design, very fashionable of late, has further increased this material’s popularity and appeal.
One excellent compromise that combines looks and practicality is concrete-effect porcelain stoneware. The Memento range by Marazzi includes the raw, tactile look of concrete in five colours and two different finishes, natural and velvet. The Memento tile sizes range from large slabs to the tiny, uneven chips of Spaccatella mosaic, for a concrete-effect equally suitable for the floors of large areas and small surfaces and walls. finally, the Vintage mosaic offers a patchwork-effect alongside the concrete-effect, for a high-impact result.
Memento is also a great choice for outdoor pavings: the 20mm thickness, available in a 500 by 1,000 format, has excellent load resistance, making it even suitable for both residential and public driveways.
