the strong and gentle soul of cement
Panaria Ceramica will participate in Maison&Objet, the international trade fair dedicated to the world of interior design and decoration, with its own space within the Ceramics of Italy collective exhibition (Hall 6 Today - Signature - Stand M112 / O111).
Panaria Ceramica’s ability to interpret the most contemporary forms of living is reflected in the cement-effect Opificio 22/A collection, which will be exhibited in Paris.
Opificio 22/A recalls the industrial, primitive premises where Panaria’s story began, before it was renewed over the years thanks to its ability both to understand the style of the moment and to use the most modern production technologies to bring it to life.
This has resulted in extraordinary textured surfaces marked by traces of the passage of time. They animate and alter the graphic effect to make it extremely varied.
The collection presented in the traditional 8 mm, 10 mm and 11mm thicknesses, together with the 20 mm thickness for outdoor areas, features the cement effect in five neutral shades: from white Gesso, to beige Argilla, grey and warm grey Calcio and Terra, and finally charcoal Cenere. A vast range that satisfies different decorative tastes, enabling greater design freedom.
The varied decorative options inspired by the charm of cement tiles (20x20 cm format) further enhance the personality of the range with five different patterns ranging from more traditional designs to geometric patterns with a contemporary style. The vast range of formats (90x90 cm; 60x60 cm; 30x60 cm; 20x20 cm), thicknesses and shades make Opificio 22/A a complete solution suitable for any type of design requirement for residential or public interiors, combining the authenticity of the material that inspires it with the resistance and functionality of ceramics. These include the antibacterial properties of PROTECT, the exclusive range of products designed with Microban® featuring an anti-bacterial shield integrated during the firing stage, almost totally eliminating up to 99.9% of bacteria from surfaces.
