Urban style at its expressive best: spacious loft apartments generally characterised by high ceilings and open dividing and structural elements.
To get your mind racing towards the atmospheres typical of districts of New York such as the alluringly exclusive Tribeca, the first thing to do is bring an industrial touch to the settings we have at our disposal.
The eye has to recognize and grasp an architectural language able to tell the observer about a previous building life, with a wealth of references to construction yards busy with men at work.
The innovative focus of this collection is not limited to the perfect reproduction of the appearance of industrial brickwork, but is also evident in the variety of ways in which it can be used: it is ideal for both floors and walls. Not only the classic 6x25 size, but also the new 34x34, 17x34, 60.5x60.5 and 60x60 rectified sizes make it possible to create stylish brickwork surfaces on both floors and walls, indoors and out.
The atmosphere of the Big Apple and the alluringly raw details that distinguish the most characteristic neighbourhoods of New York all spring to life within the walls of the home, thanks to a collection that takes a trip through the colours of a metropolis that is an icon of industrial chic.
Classic colours - white, almond, black and grey – make for a fresh, stylishly contemporary look, thanks to a ceramic surface that renders a chalky, matt effect able to emulate the elegant facades of Brooklyn Heights, or one of the classiest brownstone neighbourhoods of the Upper East Side. And it is thanks to the effort invested in research and development, geared towards defining a new glaze with a striking material impact, an authentic concentrate of technology, that the metropolitan look takes possession of the walls in the 6x25 size.
Sophisticated and romantic, the new collection by Ceramica Rondine takes its inspiration from the atmosphere of the world’s most famous Lagoon, the jewel in Italy’s crown, a city that has been home to a lively artistic and urban lifestyle for centuries. Venice offers a fascinating take on industrial brickwork, bringing an original, contemporary twist. The 6x25 brick tile comes in elegant new colours that are the fruit of unprecedented research.
The colour palette - silver, copper and gold – is the end result of a technological process developed by Ceramica Rondine’s R&D laboratory. The hallmark feature of the Venice collection is the unique type of body, which differs from the traditional process, using only stoneware powder, in that a percentage of glass is added. Because it melts and compacts at lower temperatures than classic stoneware, this mix makes it possible to obtain beautifully exclusive glazes that preserve the resistance of the tile. The elegance of this singular manufacturing process combines effectively with the distinctive features and technical characteristics of stoneware, resulting in a ceramic product with a striking appearance and such impressive resistance that it can be used on floors.
