The latest porcelain line from the Italian tile manufacturer offers a creative interpretation of well-known materials.
The new Plant collection finds inspiration in what Ceramiche Refin calls an “underground atmosphere.” Combining the materiality of both wood and cement, two elements often found in industrial settings, the porcelain tiles lend a decidedly modern vibe to residential and commercial kitchens, bathrooms and living spaces.
Employing the latest technological advances in tile production – which allow for faithful reproductions of material characteristics – Refin applied wear-and-tear effects, like scratches and worn-away colour, to imbue the collection with a warmth and familiarity.
“Through the reinterpretation of these materials, Plant porcelain tiles should be perceived as an instrument that can create a vintage mood in interiors – in the home or commercial spaces – which tells the story of the product and how it has been used in industrial settings,” the company says.
The rectified tiles are available in five neutral colours, all in a matte finish: white, grey, beige, black and a coppery brown. Suitable for both floor and wall applications, Plant is available in six formats (of up to 75×150 centimetres) and two thicknesses. Six decorative options, like the mosaic effect pictured, round out the collection.
