The use of the latest technology and the most innovative materials allows each piece to have different designs
‘Essence. Timeless Tiles' is the slogan with which Gayafores is participating in Coverings. These are three words (essence, ceramic, timeless) with which the company intends to synthesize its true DNA, characterized by a long tradition of ceramics that has evolved over time and that today coexists with the latest technological advances in the production process. Today, Gayafores extracts the best of that tradition, emphasizes its ceramic essence and transfers that being and that know-how to the new porcelain collections it presents.
Tradition, experience and technological vanguard are merged in the new collections, which provide new decorative solutions in which the digital materia is still very present. The use of the latest technology and the most innovative materials allows each piece to have different designs with nuances and details based on unique particles, layers and reliefs.
The range of Gayafores stones grows with this proposal of daring design, with a very worked graphic and with a soft movement. Canyon Collection is a sinuous, fluid and richly nuanced stone that represents an evolution of the most classic natural surfaces. The application of digital material gives Canyon a unique look, which takes as its starting point different sandstone with its characteristic mixtures of silica, calcium, carbonate or clay.
Detached and profuse in fine details, this stone comes in four formats (12,6”x24,6”, 17,7”x35,5”, 23,6”x47,3” and rectified 23,3”x46,9”) and in four colours (Natural, Grey, Almond and Pearl). In addition, it is accompanied by a mosaic-type decoration (in formats 12,6”x24,6” and 17,7”x35,5”), which stands out for its relief structure but with a continuous surface, producing an effect of light and shade that has great potential for contemporary interior design.
Inspired by a typical type of slate on the north coast of Sognefjorden in Norway, Lavik is a compact, cement-like stone with thin layers that simulate a realistic 3D effect. Taking this fossil rock as a reference, the Lavik Collection includes, on the one hand, a monochromatic base in four different shades (Dark, Grey, Pearl and Almond), and, on the other, a blind-type decoration, with a relief that reproduces gentle undulations in movement. The bases are available in formats 12,6”x24,6”, 17,7”x35,5”, 23,6”x47,3” and rectified 23,3”x46,9” and the decors are manufactured in 12,6”x24,6” and 17,7’’x35,5’'.
Lavik Collection has a serene and minimalist design, very much in line with contemporary trends in which nature exerts an outstanding influence, and its chromatic palette and subtle contrasts make it a firm candidate as a decorative solution for all types of indoor and outdoor spaces.
The classic marbles are still in full trend in interior decoration, so Aura is a safe bet. With its three formats (32x62.5, 45x90 and 60x120, the latter also in a rectified finish), to which is added a 30x30 mosaic, and its shades Calacatta, Onyx and Crema, Aura represents a reinterpretation of the natural material in which it is inspired, with the support of the latest digital technologies, both in terms of the base structure and in the pieces with relief.
Aura allows you to enjoy extreme versatility, breaking the rules with its application and promoting maximum freedom in this sense, with the guarantee of a result that is always adequate. This is a very complete collection, as the 32x62.5 and 45x90 formats are accompanied by two types of decorations, one in relief with a linear structure that highlights different parameters (Deco) and the other with a digital material effect based on a set of irregular spikes that bring light and subtlety to the whole (Mural).
Carven is available in 32x62.5 (base and deco), 45x90 (base and deco), 60x120 (base and also in rectified finish) and 30x30 (mosaic) formats and three colours: Pearl, Grey and Dark.
Carven stands out for the presence of digital material, creating a surface effect that imitates a type of finish on natural stone inspired by the embossing process, an ancestral technique that gives the support a relief effect by pressure. In this way, implementing the latest digital technology, the image is constructed from the reliefs produced by the incidence of light, giving rise to a contemporary design with a deep minimalist sense and a powerful volumetric imprint in its composition.
Carven's level of natural perfection has been made possible thanks to a studied mix of state-of-the-art raw materials together with the precise application of millimetrically precise grofatto relief techniques. Carven is a product with a basic vocation, manufactured in three shades of grey of different intensity, from a slight pearl to a deep anthracite black, passing through a medium and neutral grey.
The collection is completed with the contribution of a decoration for the formats 32x62,5 and 45x90, composed of multilistons, in which the treated graphics and with finish gofratto are combined with other unaltered, achieving a result as singular as calm.
