The Grand Carpet range by Marazzi is the result of Marazzi’s Augmented Surface project and product of the amazing and creative minds of Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. Through this range, t is possible to view the extent and not yet fully explored decorative potential of Italian porcelain stoneware.
The inspiration of this high quality Italian tile range is an antique Persian carpet that has been worn out over years resulting in a different identity and unique pattern. Small pixels with varying colour hues printed on big size porcelain tiles 1200x2400 create a single large pattern that can be repeated but it is intensely different at the same time. Smoke and Sand are the two colour shades Grand Carpet whole range is composed of. 6 big size tiles 1200x2400 with only 6mm thickness make up the whole range.
In the words of the creators and architects Citterio and Veil, their original approach to large porcelain slabs is “easy to handle and creative in its surface finishes, a characteristic not found in any other engineered material”
It is possible to use these Italian porcelain slabs to cover horizontal and vertical surfaces, indoor and outdoor in both, residential and commercial locations. Endless uses just as endless possibilities.
