The emergence of extra-large format, porcelain slabs and higher definition imaging brings exciting new opportunities to further the availability and appeal of Book Match marble designs.
Inspired by some of the most exquisite and exclusive marble from around the world, the patterns and veining within Book Match tiles are created to align and mirror each other, so giving the impression of an open book of opposing pages.
In 120/278 dimensions, offering potential for uninterrupted floor to ceiling coverage, or 75/150 allowing Book Match designs to be realised in smaller spaces, leading manufacturers have achieved extreme realism with soft, pure backgrounds and delicate or more defined veins.
Book Match tiles are normally arranged in pairs or fours, but their continuously coordinating designs allow for more expansive or odd-numbered installations. Whatever the format you choose, the effect will be luxurious and uplifting, creating fascinating, flawless features with the allure of an accomplished artwork.
Minoli’s Book Match products are within our two most prestigious ranges of marble-effect tiles, those of the Marvel and Cosmopolitan Series.
MARVEL SERIES BOOK MATCH
The continuous advancement of the Minoli Marvel Series keeps it at the cutting edge of the industry’s technological capabilities with innovative evolutions of this state-of-the-art surface solution.
The leading designers in the industry have drawn inspiration from the most sought-after classical marble, as well as interpreting new directions with modern lines and striking colour combinations. Higher definition graphics, muted and mellow backgrounds, vivid and varied veining, and new techniques in transparent layering produce designs with unprecedented depth.
BOOK MATCH COLOURS AND DESIGNS
Book Match formats are available in five different designs from the Minoli Marvel Series.
- Marvel Calacatta Extra – An extraordinary Calacatta-style porcelain tile inspired by this renowned Italian marble, the clarity and purity of finish will transform an area into an exquisitely elegant living space. An icy background is softened with sporadic touches of neutral beige alongside grey natural veining.
- Marvel Calacatta Prestigio – The designers of Calacatta Prestigio studied the delicate pale grey veining and authentic copper-gold pigment of the marble to produce the most precise and accurate replicas in stunning and authentic detail.
- Marvel Statuario Supremo – Against the creamy, soft, brushstroke background, more prominent grey veining creates a dramatic effect. There is such clarity and definition in the graphics that this premium, porcelain product is almost indiscernible from its natural quarried counterpart.
- Marvel Statuario Select– More densely patterned, Statuario Select bridges between a white and coloured marble-effect, with a silky off-white canvas overlaid with striking gey veining. This colourway demonstrates emphatically the technological and aesthetic advancements in porcelain production.
- Marvel Grey Fleury – Almost inverting the impression of Statuario Select, Grey Fleury has a smoky, steely base palette, fissured with pale grey and white striations that bring depth and movement to the design.
SIZES AND FINISHES
In Book Match format, Calacatta Extra, Calacatta Presigio and Statuario Supremo are all available in A and B designs, in 120/278 dimensions and a 6 mm thickness for ease of handling and installation. In high-grade porcelain with crisply rectified edges and a Polished Lappato surface, they are equally suited for wall and floor applications. The patterning can be aligned when laid horizontally or vertically and the full splendour of the corresponding imagery is revealed when fixed in twos or fours depending on the desired direction.
Statuario Select and Grey Fleury allow designers to incorporate Book Match into smaller spaces with their 75/150 sizes and 9 mm thickness. Again, with Polished Lappato finishes and A and B designs, the effect of the coordinated, opposing visuals is mesmerising.
COSMOPOLITAN BOOK MATCH
The Cosmopolitan Series presents interior designers and architects with the opportunity to incorporate the majestic allure of real, quarried marble but with the inherent production uniformity and consistency of design and dimension of a man-made material, which enables more precise installation within modern built environments.
This is an outstanding example of how the leading creatives in porcelain production have interpreted marble-effects to new levels of luxury and realism, drawing inspiration from the most sought-after classical marble, as well as interpreting new directions with modern lines and striking colour combinations.
BOOK MATCH COLOURS AND DESIGNS
Book Match formats are available in three different designs from the Minoli Cosmopolitan Series.
Statuario Extra – With striking silvery veining over a pale grey background, this porcelain tile is a timeless and impactful choice. The level of layered detail within the streaks and striations is remarkable.
Calacatta Gold – A pure white canvas with warm, golden taupe veining that delivers an unmistakable aura of luxury. The graded shading within the veins has such character and is complemented by other natural and metallic furnishings and fittings.
Arabescatto Oro – A white marble look with luxurious copper-gold veining that appear to flow across the perfectly polished surface in a lava-like fashion. Arabescatto Oro is both elegant and exotic and the rich colours within bring a sense of opulence to any environment.
SIZES AND FINISHES
In Book Match format, Statuario Extra, Calacatta Gold and Arabescatto Oro are all available in A and B designs, in 120/278 dimensions and a 6 mm thickness for ease of handling and installation. In high-grade porcelain with precision rectified edges and a Polished Lappato finish, they are again perfectly suited to wall and floor applications. The patterning can be aligned when laid horizontally or vertically and their 120/278 dimensions enable uninterrupted floor to ceiling coverage.
In this extra-large slab format, the mirrored symmetrical designs create a lasting impression within both classic and contemporary settings.
