Porcelain tiles that emulate natural marble have established themselves as a mainstay in the designer’s toolkit and it’s the incessant evolution of their quality, realism, format and colour palette that will ensure they remain at the fore for interior designers and architects.
The Cosmopolitan Series 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.
Higher definition graphics, muted and mellow backgrounds, vivid and varied veining, and new techniques in transparent layering produce designs with unprecedented depth.
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 striking series, with standard-sized tiles, large format slabs and delightfully distinctive mosaic and decor pieces, principally in a Polished / Lappato finish, offers enormous versatility as an all-porcelain product range for use an walls or floors.
COLOURS AND DESIGNS
Cosmopolitan comprises seven different designs to suit installation in both classic and contemporary settings.
Calacatta Gold – A pure white canvas with warm taupe veining that delivers an unmistakable aura of luxury.
Statuario Extra – With striking silvery veining over a pale grey background, this porcelain tile is a timeless and impactful choice.
Statuario Fantastico – The charcoal grey veins with brushed blue undertones are a bold addition to any project.
Arabescato Oro – A white marble look with luxurious copper-gold veining that appear to flow across the perfectly polished surface.
White Crystal – Inspired by the exclusive Onyx marble, this design has soft and cloud like composition that creates an effortlessly elegant environment.
Mystic Grey – A strong grey backdrop with delicate and considered black veining and ferrous flecks that augment marble-effect porcelain tiles to new levels of artistic beauty.
Amazzonite – With brilliant blues, green hues and glints of gold, Amazzonite is inspired by the precious gemstones after which it is named.
SIZES AND FINISHES
In terms of size and finish, there is consistency of format across the majority of the Cosmopolitan Series. Nearly all of this collection features a glossy Polished / Lappato surface, with just two Matt / Natural derivatives and there is close alignment in the dimensions, mosaics and decor pieces across the seven different designs.
