Cersaie 2017: Dark stones continue to make an impact

September 2017

Early signs are that the 2016 trend towards darker, more dramatic, stone-effect tiles will continue to be one of the underlying themes at Cersaie 2017.

One of the first of these uber-masculine ranges to catch the eye in Bologna was Grespania’s Lavica, which captures the dramatic appeal of basalt, with its near black tones of grey, hard-edged textures and subtly variegated surface.

All the elements of the Lávica series are a testament to the overwhelming force of nature that forged the volcanic stone that inspired the range.

This technical through-body porcelain range comes in three different finishes: natural, polished and relief.  This, combined with the choice of 600 by 1,200, 800 by 800, 600 by 600 and 300 by 600mm formats, makes Lavica a truly versatile range.

It is completed with four decorative pieces:  The 600 by 600mm Vulcanic that combines a natural finish with a relief; the 300 by 30mcm mesh-mounted Manto that features a 3D effect; the 300 by 300mm mesh-mounted Caldera comprising small pieces in the style of a Roman mosaic; and the classic mesh-mounted Magma.

Its understated modern design, soft, natural finishes and elegant decors makes Lávica suitable for any space - public or private - aiming to create a serene, modern style while ebenfitting from the performance of technical through-body porcelain.
