Voyager collection launched by Refin at Cersaie 2017

September 2017
Several strong new ranges have been launched at Cersaie this year, but the real trendsetter discovered so far is Refin’s novel interpretation of antique and distressed metallic-effect tiles.  This stunning range mimics the patina, care-worn metallic tones and sophisticated relief patterns of reclaimed antique tin ceiling tiles.
Refin’s new Voyager collection comprises porcelain tiles that closely resemble the beautiful tin ceilings that were popular in New York, Sydney and beyond at the turn of the last century and are now highly sought after in architectural salvage yards.
Originally an affordable alternative to the elaborate plasterwork seen in European buildings, today the aged tin ceilings are coveted in style circles for their cool, characterful appeal.  Refin has masterfully captured the essence of these American architectural gems with their rich patinas and aged effects in easy-to-maintain porcelain tile form. 
In this superb range, Ceiling Mix and Ceiling White (shown above) are accompanied by four beautiful plain patinated metal style finishes.
It’s not a range for the faint-hearted designer; but should be celebrated as a brave departure from the tile design norm and looks set to be known as a range that set a new benchmark in contemporary tile design.
