Plaza is an eco-sustainable collection that features the new Puro Marazzi Antibacterial technology. Versatile in applications and sizes, it is suitable for indoor and outdoor use
Plaza is a fine blend of performances, ground-breaking technology and a contemporary aesthetic. It offers a concrete look in four colours, with subtle patterning with modulated shades, for use both outdoors and indoors, enabling not only stylistic and chromatic continuity between rooms and areas but also a strongly individual image. Like the Carácter stone-effect collection and Alba, which combines the warmth of wood with stone, Plaza incorporates two major technologies developed by Marazzi: Puro Marazzi Antibacterial, which guarantees surfaces the highest degree of hygiene and protection, and the state-of-the-art StepWise™ anti-slip finish, easy to clean, soft to the touch and free from roughness.
These safety and hygiene characteristics make Plaza ideal for a wide range of applications: from the home to the office through to the retail sector.
Industrial concrete takes centre stage, a tool at the service of architectural design. Plaza is available in four floor covering colours (Blanco, Beige, Grey and Multicolor), with blue, ochre and brown incursions that pick out the colours in the materials or furnishings, contributing to design schemes with a distinctive taste and a metropolitan mood. The structured finish ensures safe use even outdoors for the utmost continuity of style, while the large sizes (60x120 cm, 60x60 cm, 30x60 cm) are ideal for original installation patterns and creative use of joints.
Plaza also offers a wide variety of wall coverings, for decorative tone-on-tone compositions or contrasting textures. It includes a 3D Range relief version and a striped decor in bright colours (Wallace) in the 30x90 cm size, together with a 30x30 cm mosaic version. All wall tiles are available in the three colour variants Beige, Greige and White and in the 30x90 cm size.
Puro’s antibacterial function is an intrinsic property of the material: the silver ion antimicrobial technology is incorporated in the 1200°C firing process, which enables the material to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms, in any light conditions. This characteristic, combined with the StepWise™ patent which gives the surface antislip properties while retaining a soft, silky feel, makes Plaza a particularly versatile collection, suitable for use even in damp locations such as gyms or spas, and also safe for personal care and healthcare facilities. One final, no less important, distinctive feature of Plaza is its sustainability: manufactured with 40% recycled material, the collection meets the pressing demand from the market and the architecture world for products with less environmental impact.
