Oltre, the Marazzi approach to contemporary oak: minimal, high-tech and antibacterial
reading time: 3 minutes
Following on from Vero, with the Oltre collection Marazzi raises wood-effect porcelain stoneware to new heights of expression and technology
The present time, when we are being forced to spend much longer in our domestic environments, makes the need for a comfortable, protective, convenient, healthy home more pressing than ever before. The new Oltre collection by Marazzi combines these needs in a single material, by offering the warm, natural consistency of wood with all the functional performances, including hygiene, of porcelain stoneware.
While in Vero the ceramic wood look focused on exquisite workmanship, hand-planing and strong colour contrasts, in Oltre this effect evolves towards the rarest high-grade oak. The result is a wood with a warm minimalism, in Scandinavian and contemporary taste.
Versatile in its colour range (White, Natural, Sand and Caramel), sizes (22.5x180-20x120-30x120 cm), finishes (natural or grip) and applications (indoor/outdoor, residential/light retail), Oltre is a state-of-the-art ceramic parquet, with a hyper-realistic matt natural appearance achieved thanks to the new Sublime Sync® technology.
The outcome of sophisticated industrial processes, the collection is a concentrate of the new premium technologies developed by Marazzi.
Sublime Sync: digital printing and high-definition tactile structure. High Performance: resistance and versatility for indoor and outdoor spaces. StepWise™: technical performances for anti-slip, soft-touch, easy-clean surfaces. Zero Glossy: a new generation of glazes with super-matt effects. Puro Marazzi Antibacterial: the latest, innovative technology that eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms from the ceramic surfaces, incorporating the additives that combat their proliferation right from the initial firing phases, for constant, lasting action in any light conditions.
