Stoneware becomes glossy and refined: the marble-effect of the Bistrot, Maiora and Imperiale collections

Exquisite stoneware slabs to reinterpret the meaning of luxury in spaces with a modern inspiration.

With the marble-effect stoneware in the Ragno Bistrot, Maiora Marble Effect and Imperiale collections, luxury becomes accessible. Accessible not only in financial terms, but also because it enables those who love the exquisite, elegant aesthetic of marble to choose from a range of sustainable products applicable to their everyday situation – residential, hospitality or commercial.

Those who have been fortunate enough to visit a marble mason’s workshop and admire the multitude of marble slabs from all over the world, could not fail to be astonished by the splendid colours and vein patterns which, together with the very glossy surface, create unexpected, surprising, iridescent depth and three-dimensional effects that vary depending on the viewing angle.

Ragno interprets this allure, which for many of us is part of a sort of archive of memories deposited over time and gradually developed through the superimposition of images of architecture and travel, transferring the beauty of marble onto porcelain stoneware, which is contemporary, eco-conscious and perfectly suited to the aesthetic and technological requirements of modern living.

Moreover, the wide range of products in the catalogue makes it possible to experiment with inserts inspired by multiple materials or combinations of sizes, colour variations and decorations such as mosaics, brickwork tiles and three-dimensional slabs with a bold chiaroscuro effect.

The glossy finish of the marble-effect stoneware slabs also has a benefit rarely offered by other materials: the ability to make the interaction with light, whether natural or artificial, a truly striking element.

This specific quality is an important design tool for defining the design of a home’s interior, for example, because it allows, by exploiting the shine of marble-effect surfaces, to recalibrate the relationship between horizontal and vertical planes and, if necessary, to enlarge visual perception of small rooms.

With Ragno, the luxury of marble becomes democratic.
