Fusion Green tiles by Casalgrande Padana

Casalgrande Padana lists multipurpose tiles on Dezeen Showroom

Dezeen Showroom: Italian surface manufacturer Casalgrande Padana has released five new tile collections that mimic the appearance of wood, metal and stone.

Casalgrande Padana's Fusion Green tiles have a dulled, rusted appearance, rich in character that recall how metal oxidises when exposed to the elements.

The tiles' muted green colouration has patches of grey and silver, creating a unique surface finish that looks like aged sheet metal but is made from ceramics.

Like many of the brand's tiles, it can be used in traditional floor and wall applications as well as to clad bespoke furnishings.

Stonetech tile collection by Casalgrande Padana
Stonetech tiles can be used for a variety of applications

The Stonetech range recalls the lightly speckled appearance of stones native to the central Alps, including marble, quartz and feldspar.

Their full-body structure means that the tiles' flecked patterns permeate through its internal layers, maintaining a naturalistic finish despite dents and scratches created during use.

Pietra Tiburtina tile collection by Casalgrande Padana
Pietra Tiburtina is reminiscent of travertine, a mainstay of Italian architecture

Also designed to look like a type of naturally-occurring rock, the Pietra Tiburtina collection is based on the appearance of travertine, which has been used in construction and decoration for thousands of years.

Two patterns are referenced in the collection – striated vein-cut and mottled cross-cut travertine – that can both be used to cover walls and floors as well as more specialised applications such as to create furniture, partitions and basins.

Project Wood tile collection by Casalgrande Padana
Project Wood surfaces can be used inside and out

Project Wood tiles recall the aesthetic of wooden floorboards, another popular building material, and come in two versions – one suitable for indoor use and one intended for installation outside.

The warm, honey-toned planks are based on the look of beech wood and have realistic surface textures, however they are made from durable porcelain.

Metropolis tile collection by Casalgrande Padana
Metropolis White has a finish that looks like concrete

Metropolis White tiles can be installed with almost invisible connections, creating a continuous surface across walls, floors and furnishings.

They come in a range of size formats as well as indoor and outdoor iterations for use across a range of applications.
