Marazzi’s New Spring 2020 Tile Collections Give Homeowners & Designers The Power To Customize
Five beautiful new introductions nod to the hottest global design trends in color, shape and texture.
Marazzi is pleased to announce five new tile collections, each bringing the latest trends to life in a variety of shapes, colors, sizes and textures for globally-inspired design. From bold shapes and biophilic-inspired materials, the new Spring 2020 collections from Marazzi empower homeowners and designers with more options to customize their projects.
“Bold pops of design are one of the hottest trends in the industry, from residential areas to commercial,” said Micah Hand, senior marketing manager of Dal-Tile, parent company of Marazzi USA. “The amazing thing about this trend is that it allows designers and homeowners to create a space that is unique, especially as there are so many products to choose from. Our newest collections draw bold inspiration from nature, from earthy blues and greens to marble and concrete aesthetics. We want customers to create spaces they love, and our products are designed to support that desire.”
Surfaces with texture continue to increase in popularity within interior spaces, providing a splash of luxury and intrigue. The Artezen™ line is inspired by handmade ceramics with an undulated surface and translucent glaze to create a beautiful flow of movement across the installation. The collection features geometric shapes like Hex and Picket, brick joint and herringbone. Available in three neutral colors, including a shimmery bronze metallic and two beautiful shades of blue, Artezen also embraces the popular trend of incorporating a Moroccan influence. A hi-res room scene can be found here.
Following the trend integrating Moroccan design into products, Moroccan Concrete™ is an aesthetic combination of time-worn concrete and Moroccan influence creating a wide range of earthy color tones. From Light Moss to Ochre to Terra Cotta, twelve unique colors and patterns combine elegantly with a range of wall, floor and mosaic shapes to create unique designs. Eight solid colors are available in large format sizes, including an on-trend, 8” hex and 1 ½ “ x 1 ½” mosaics. The series is rounded out by Aziza, a Moroccan-inspired 8” x 8” decorative motif in four colors, as well as a 3” x 3” decorative mosaic with a blend of patterns. Moroccan Concrete features StepWise™ technology, making it an ideal selection for indoor and outdoor spaces. Hi-res room scenes can be found here.
Additionally, Zellige™, a wabi-sabi take on the trend, blends North African tradition with industrial ceramics to create an undulated surface with variation in color tones to accentuate the natural imperfections and hand-crafted look of the collection. Its glossy finish and visible variation creates a blend effect in which the color vibrates strongly. Offered in an array of 12 beautiful shades these 4” x 4” tiles have the power to transform any space. Hi-res images can be found here.
Earthy blues and greens, as seen in the biophilic-inspired colorways of Coastal Effects™, create luxurious designs using molten glass mosaics. Vibrant color tones in four color combinations from sapphire blue to rich onyx create ribbons of color in this unique mosaic. On-trend geometric shapes take form in Small Picket, Large Picket and Trellis accented with antique mirror, providing ample pattern options for any homeowner or designer. Hi-res images can be found here.
Similarly, GeoMetal™ is a bold metallic wall tile that stands out in any space with a three-dimensional structure in 6” x 6” available in hex and harlequin mosaic. GeoMetal makes a statement with Champagne Gold, Gunmetal, Bronze and Brushed Nickel metallic color tones. Pattern designs in Geometric, Floret and Ornament lend rich textures to any space. A special blend of materials gives the authentic look of metal, while giving GeoMetal the durability to be installed in wet areas. Hi-res images can be found here.
