Zero Glossy is a new technology for obtaining ceramic surfaces with a super-matt or extra-matt finish

Reading time: minutes

In keeping with one of the most persistent trends in interior design, which also demands increasingly high-tech and high-performance ceramic products, the latest frontier in the research of the Ragno Ceramiche laboratories is the development of a series of glazes with a range of very low reflections equivalent to those of light on natural and mineral surfaces.

The continuous interaction between design and innovation generates interesting new product solutions which are not only geared towards increasingly sophisticated and exclusive aesthetics but also to offering new consumer experiences that promise visual and tactile sensations and emotions while guaranteeing high-performance technical characteristics.

Zero Glossy is a new technology that guarantees an extremely matt and anti-reflective finish while maintaining the exceptional mechanical and chemical-physical performances of porcelain stoneware. The demand for extra-matt surfaces converges with a recent trend that prioritises the use of natural materials for spaces with relaxed contours and calming atmospheres that create new connections between material and design focused on in-depth and simple textures, synonymous with a modern but harmonious lifestyle.

The ultra-matt finish obtained with the new Zero Glossy technology forms part of the mood of the Ossimori collection for a minimal, decidedly Nordic look. In particular, thanks to well-calibrated combinations and contrasts of textures and colors, from a stylistic perspective the floor is perfectly in keeping with the main interior design elements.

This wood-effect collection is based on four delicate natural colors, available in the 25×150 and 20×120 cm rectified sizes, in the 11×54 cm Chevron and in the 20×120 cm rectified size with Outdoor surface, for large, luminous spaces that blur the boundaries between the indoors and outdoors in continuous dialogue with the whole home. While the surface with Natural finish is slightly glossy and very textured, the extremely natural-looking Extra Matt surface completely eliminates the material’s reflectivity thanks to the application of Zero Glossy technology. The plank tiles are in monocalibre rectified colorbody fine porcelain stoneware to minimise or even eliminate the joints between them, for an even more realistic parquet look.

Ossimori builds balanced connections between experience and expertise, offering a wide range of sizes and colors with textures inspired by traditional craftsmanship and the culture of antique wood with a contemporary vision of living that conveys atmospheres of tranquillity and practicality.
