(Chicago, IL – March 2022) – Iris Ceramica Group, introduces Luce, a dynamic collaboration with Rome-based fashion design house Maison Gattinoni’s style director Guillermo Mariotto. The chiaroscuro-inspired Luce collection plays with light, shadows and movement to elevate environments with the sinuous draping effects of flowing fabrics. Combining light with sculptural shapes on the surfaces takes architecture to a new dimension by transforming spaces into a classic elegance style with a contemporary twist. Colors available in the Luce collection include: Black, Blu, Gold, Grey, Pearl and Silver.
Iris Ceramica, a brand part of Iris Ceramica Group, introduces the Elementi range which includes three distinct collections for floor applications (Elementi Pietra, Elementi Lava, and Elementi Terra) and one collection for wall applications (Elementi Rivestimento). The collections are renowned for their aesthetic and chromatic matching possibilities in a series of expressive color palettes where sizes and surfaces combine for a total look solution.
The new clay-inspired Stardust collection from Porcelain Gres is available in the following intense shades— Aquamarine, Ash, Clay, Ground, Lava, Moonlight, Ocean and Terra. This palette combines neutral shades with modern vibrant hues, such as aquamarine green and ocean blue. Both the ceramic mix and the surface are enriched with small colored flakes, real “stardust” that embellishes and strengthens the material.
The new striking polished Italian marble looks in the Maximum Marmi range of premium Italian large format porcelain panels include: Bardiglio Sublime, Breccia Mirabile, Cremo Superiore, Lepanto Rubino, Divine Blue, Grand Carnico, Nero Damascato, Alpi Chiaro Venato, and Majestic Onyx. Debuting for the first time in the U.S., these new high tech architectural surfaces include the latest in Iris Ceramica Group’s advanced technology and manufacturing capabilities and years of continuous research.
Produced in Italy, the Maximum Marmi 120×60 large format sophisticated slabs are inspired by the fine veins, color variations, and elegant details.
