Now available in new larger sizes, the Design Industry collection includes Oxyde tiles that look like shades of oxidised metals, while the Raw range is designed to appear like rough cement and peeling plaster.

Ceramiche Refin at the Surface Design Show 2013

Italian tile manufacturer Ceramiche Refin will launch two new collections in the UK at the Surface Design Show, London, 5-7 February.

Frame is a unique, bold and graphic collection of ceramic tiles resulting from a collaboration between DesignTaleStudio, Refin’s ceramic experimentation laboratory, and studio FM Milano, a Milan-based graphic design agency.

Comprised of four designs - Carpet, Geometric, Majolica, and Weave - the entire Frame collection uses graphic design in an inventive and contemporary way, re-interpreting traditional decorated ceramics. The design also becomes fragmented and the scale changes perception of the how the decorative element is seen. The result is an exciting new surface pattern that can easily be used by architects and interior designers to create innovative residential and commercial spaces.

Design Industry is inspired by urban design and contemporary architectural trends, and comprises two different ranges - Oxyde and Raw. In addition, the collection is offered in a wide range of tile sizes, colours and textures to enable greater freedom in project planning, indoors and out.

The tiles in the Oxyde range evoke the glazed look of oxidised metals combining bright, dark and rust shades, whilst the Raw range echoes the chromatic and structural interpretation of raw cement and flaking plaster.

New maxi-sizes
Design Industry tiles are available in two new maxi-sizes; 75x75 cm and 75x150 cm, launched after extensive research and investment by Refin. The 75x75 cm slab is the largest size that can be installed by a single technician, so it combines easy handling and installation with the strong aesthetic impact typical of large-scale tiles.
The 75x150 cm size, one of the largest available on the market, enhances the texture and the graphic effects and reduces the number of grout lines, contributing to the continuous effect of the surface. It is suitable both for indoor use and for ventilated facades and allows for different sub-cuts.
