The new Marazzi ceramic and stoneware collections at Boulevard Saint-Germain 63 in Paris

Reading time minutes

The stars are the new large-size marble-effect slabs, the small, colourful brick tiles of the Crogiolo Confetto collection and the innovative library of Marazzi products for professionals

From large stoneware slabs to small tiles with a handcrafted air, and from high-tech materials to outdoor stonewares. The Marazzi flagship store in Paris exhibits the very latest ceramic and stoneware products. These include the just-launched Marble Looks of Grande and The Top, the fresh addition to the Crogiolo collection, Confetto, and Naturalia stone-effect high-tech stoneware.

The display windows are a mix & match of materials and sizes. The Grande Marble Look large slab in the just-out Fior di Pesco Carnico colour creates an attractive contrast with the Blu brick tile from the Confetto collection. On the opposite wall the Onice look, in beautiful Avorio colour, features alongside elegant Calacatta Black, which greets visitors at the entrance to the showroom, next to the exquisite Onice Giada and the more sophisticated Puzzle mosaic from the Momenti collection. The 3D structures of the Crogiolo Confetto and Naturalia collections, on the other hand, give personality to the windows overlooking Rue Thénard. The Confetto small-size tile, in Mattone colour, has a slight dimple in the centre which emphasises its three-dimensionality and its hand-made effect, while the Naturalia Stone Look collection, manufactured with latest-generation 3D Ink and StepWise technologies, highlights the contrast between stone’s natural delicacy and its roughness, by reinterpreting the carvings and relief effects of ancient carved stonework.

The first floor of the showroom contains the materials library, a physical catalogue of products, where surfaces, textures and colours can be touched and combined exactly to taste. In this area, architects, designers, dealers and consumers in search of inspiration will find the tools they need to research and develop their projects, since they can examine and compare products, and discover their individual features and intrinsic technologies.

On the same floor, the renewal of the interiors has included the total restyling of the kitchen and bathroom areas, using the new Marazzi porcelain stoneware collections. The former is dominated by The Top large slabs, which guarantee excellent technical performance, the result of exclusive research into material and use of the most advanced technologies. Adopted in the Marble Look and Stone Look finishes, they are exceptionally refined, hygienic, tough and durable, ideal characteristics in a kitchen. The wall units and backsplash are covered with Golden White slabs, while the base and the worktop with integral induction hob are finished with the Limestone collection, inspired by the stone of the same name. In the cloakrooms area, the large slabs from the Grande and The Top collections in Verde Borgogna look are combined with the Lume small-size tiles with hand-made effect in Beige colour, which matches the orangey veining of the marble-effect stoneware.
