The Metropolis collection is an unusual interpretation of one of the most sought-after materials in architecture: the stone. The series combines 7 unusually beautiful types of stone from different parts of the world and 3 types of unique porcelain stoneware with the effect of Murano glass.


Each color from the Metropolis collection deserves special attention:

  • Calacatta Gold is a light and airy Italian marble with warm gray-gold veins. Perfect white with warm undertones.
  • Royal Ivory repeats the graphics of the famous Bianco Venezia stone, it is a symbol of Venetian architecture. Flawless light background.
  • Desert Beige is a warm beige stone from Croatia. Gentle brown and delicate white veins give it expressiveness.
  • Absolute Silver is a light gray minimalist stone from the USA that resembles concrete.
  • Graphite Dark is an austere stone with an architectural cut from the UK.
  • Arcadia Brown is a legendary stone from northern Italy with contrasting color transitions.
  • Imperial Black is an Italian anthracite gray limestone with prominent white cross veins.

Stone effect tiles are presented in the formats 60×120, 80×80 and 80×160 with matt finish, and tiles with the glass effect have 80×160 format and lux finish.
Four colors: Calacatta Gold, Royal Ivory, Arcadia Brown, Imperial Black – are also present in the 120×278 maxi-format. The color Calacatta Gold is presented in the new silk finish.

The series is completed with stylish decors: 3 types of wall decors and 4 porcelain stoneware ones, which can be laid both on the floor and on the walls.
