Italian auto designer Pinifarina launches it first tile system


Italy’s renowned Casalgrande Padana, the leading manufacturer of state of the art ceramic materials and Pininfarina, the world-renowned design house have come together to introduce EARTH- an exclusive tile collection. Launched at CERSAIE, International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings, this is first collection designed by Pininfarina. The two companies bring together quality and excellence, design and material innovation and a mutual respect for the environment.

The tiles are inspired by the Pininfarina car design, with clean-cut and extremely elegant lines while the finishes and special materials – car body paint, fine wood, natural leather treated to be used as a coating material – make them even more unique. The texture of the stoneware slabs is the combination of three different materials – glass, leather, and fabric, which creates a strong multisensory effect. Besides being pleasing to the eye, it offers an innovative texture and tactile three-dimensionality as well as a vast color palette and large formats. This versatility makes it suitable for use anywhere, from private villas to luxury hotels.
