The darkest known form of slate and prized Belgian rock Pierre Blue are among the inspirations for the latest tiles in Marazzi’s Mystone range with three new types of tiles: Ardesia, Bluestone and Lavagna.
The tiles are made from porcelain but offer the appearance of natural stone. Each model is available in a range of different colors, sizes and finishes – including structured surfaces that mimic the texture of the stones on which they’re based.
Mystone Ardesia emulates the patterns of its namesake limestone, and comes in three neutral hues: bianco, cenere and antracite. Bluestone, meanwhile, is based on the well-known Pierre Blue stone from the Belgain region of Soignies, a sedimentary rock that in its natural form varies from pale blue to grey. Marazzi is making it available in three shades of grey: grigio, piombo and antracite. The third kind of tile, Lavagna, is based on the blackest slate, which has seen extensive oxidation, so is available in just one color: nero.
The tiles can be used on floors and walls, and come in indoor and outdoor varieties, which makes them perfect for creating unbroken visual continuity between different spaces or surfaces.
