Cera, Ceramiche Refin Wax-Inspired Collection

February 20, 2024

Ceramiche Refin will present an extension to its Cera Collection, as well as a new stone-inspired collection in a worldwide premiere at Coverings, the most important trade show in North America for professionals in the ceramic sector, in Atlanta April 22-25.

Refin’s unique, daring experimental approach is on full display in this collection that draws inspiration from the working of wax and represents a totally new creative look for the world of ceramic surfaces. Sparked by an original insight of Refin’s tile designers, whose creativity was piqued by the look of wax for the development of new surfaces, research was initiated based on observations of wax and its transformations and on experiments conducted to translate the same visual and tactile sensations onto ceramic tiles.

Refin was thus able to recreate the plasticity of wax by elaborating a graphic design with great depth, where small cracks, cavities and traces – reproducing the effect resulting from the casting and subsequent solidification of wax – seem to dance lightly across a background that alternates between light and dark areas.

The result is a surface with a uniform appearance, which only reveals a wealth of details and nuances when seen up close, adding a dynamic nature to the material, producing an original, elegant, refined perception.

Attentive experimentation also led to the development of the special Cerasilk surface finish that distinguishes the collection, which is particularly soft and silky and conveys the fluidity of wax to the touch, reinforcing the realistic effect of the graphics. In addition to this, the new Matt-pro finish is now introduced, which is pleasantly soft to the touch yet slightly textured, providing increased slip resistance.

The color range includes three powdery shades whose names metaphorically recreate a complete color spectrum: Luce, luminous white expressing sensations of purity; Fumo, a refined grey enhancing the depth of the graphics; and Incenso, a warm shade with a strong personality. The tiles are available in three sizes: 60×120 cm and 120X120 cm for floor and walls, plus the new 6×24 cm brick format for walls.
