Is there anything as timeless as a brick wall? For Italy’s Casalgrande Padana, the quintessential building block is a point of inspiration for a bold yet unfailingly sophisticated line of porcelain tiles. Aptly dubbed Brickworks, the new series of wall and floor tiles comprises three distinct collections and a wide range of matte and glossy finishes.
It all starts with the brick format. With each tile measuring 8.2 by 25 centimetres, the elegant proportions are a canvas for innovative design thinking, fostering a pared down yet distinctly contemporary ambiance. The three Brickworks collections — Nuances, Petra and Muretto — round out a richly diverse aesthetic palette, with the versatile tiles suitable for a wide range of commercial, residential and hospitality settings, both indoors and out.
From vivid shades of blue and green to understated neutral hues, Nuances is available in eight colourways, each with a choice of matte or glossy finish. Well suited to a wide range of settings, the tiles can be laid horizontally, vertically or diagonally, as well as in an eye-catching herringbone pattern.
Whether it’s a bold accent wall or a contemporary kitchen floor, the simple yet eye-catching combinations offer myriad opportunities through an interplay of tones, finishes or installation patterns.
The warm, tactile quality of the Muretto collection nourishes a similarly impressive gamut of design approaches. A pleasing play of tones plays out across the tile surfaces, evoking a real brick wall.
The six Muretto hues, which can be laid in a variety of patterns including a traditionally staggered brick configuration, are a particularly apt complement to concrete, wood, stone and marble surfaces — not to mention the wealth of Casalgrande Padana tiles in the same natural finishes.
While Petra’s organic tones create a soothing sense of depth, the strength and durability — as well as sanitary quality — of porcelain offers unparalleled performance. For designers, it all translates to exceptional flexibility, making the decorative tiles ideal for bridging indoor and outdoor settings.
Characterized by its earthy, sandy veining, the stone effect Petra collection conveys the natural beauty of quartz with an artful sense of depth and shadowing.
Building on a simple, essential form, the Brickworks series opens up a wealth of possibilities. Combining aesthetic refinement with uncompromising technical performance and ease of maintenance, Casalgrande Padana’s porcelain stoneware is an invitation to re-imagine every kind of space. From backdrop to accent piece, wall to floor, residential to commercial, and indoor to outdoor, it’s an unparalleled surface for expression.
