Ceramiche Refin Namib Collection

October 15, 2023

One of the oldest deserts in the world – recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site – was the inspiration for the Namib Collection from Ceramiche Refin. The new collection brings the suggestions of unspoiled nature into interior spaces, fusing immensity and simplicity.

Its tiles have an overall uniform surface whose earthy character is mitigated by a refined graphic design rich in detail and color variations when viewed up close. The alternation of light and dark streaks, together with the calibrated irregularity of the grain and color, convey a subtle effect of depth and movement.The color palette recalls natural sceneries with a marked propensity for warm nuances, interpreted with refinement in the various tonal scales — the neutral tones of Dune, Ecru and Linen dialogue with the shades of Camel, Jasper and Earth, inspired by the pigments of soils and sands.

Ceramiche Refin‘s new matt-profinish is pleasantly soft to the touch while maintaining good slip resistance thanks to its easy-to-clean slight texture. There are four formats — two square and two rectangular — ranging from 120-by-120 cm to 30-by-60 cm for simple use in any design project.

Enriching the range are three decors that bring the aura of stunning natural panoramas into interior settings — Illusion and Oasis, which evoke the dunes and mirages of the desert through compositions of vibrant colors and sinuous irregular bands, and Gem, a square-basket-effect decor with a marked three-dimensionality and intense blue nuance that transports the imagination to the colors of the sky.
