The appeal of decor

Furnishing walls with new textured, glossy and tactile expressions. Ragno presents the unique Touch Technology, a sustainable evolution developed in the Group’s laboratories.

Technique and aesthetics demonstrate their inseparable bond in Ragno Ceramiche’s workshops, where the craftsmanship and the technological know-how of industry experts generate innovative and largely customizable production solutions.

Two-dimensional printing and embossed decorations come together in a single step for a cutting-edge result known as Touch Technology.

Inkjet digital printing is already a notable example of the progressive digitalization of the ceramics industry, an ongoing revolution involving production and business processes with a focus on optimization and environmental sustainability.

This technique has been combined with a selective three-dimensional effect, achieved by directly applying pulverized glassy material on the white body substrate. This process replaces the third firing typical of the ceramic tradition, while preserving its most distinctive artistic and artisanal aspect.

A perfect alignment between the graphic design and the material is achieved during the inkjet printing process thanks to a second layer of grit, which is melted during the firing stage, resulting in the crystalline relief typical of Touch Technology.

With a double digital step, various decorative effects can then be achieved: glossy, matt, plain, or an ice effect due to the uneven spread of the glassy material. A specialized approach that can generate many variations on the theme, revealing the enormous potential of a technology in the making.

The in-line production of Ragno Ceramiche decors constitutes an evolution in terms of both quality and the efficiency of the entire industrial process. It is an extremely competitive product designed to also decorate large walls with wallpaper effects in rooms with a wide variety of uses.

All the chemical and mechanical resistance advantages of ceramics, its hygienic properties, and ease of cleaning also make it the safest choice for ‘ultra-wet’ spaces, compared to other materials used in construction that require greater precautions.

Ragno’s new wall coverings are designed to give rooms a sense of three-dimensionality and fullness through multiple in-line decorations with a single module that facilitate plain installation or the creation of boiserie to alternate with solid colors, resulting in design customization in keeping with the latest interior design trends.

Touch technology enhances multiple Ragno collections, including Vida, Papers, Clayton Wall and Richmond Wall.
