And the minimum, in visual terms, is the dot: the origin of all other shapes and symbols. Here, the dot is interpreted through little inclusions. We might say that Pietra d’Origine could be classified as a fine-grained sedimentary rock which contains no fossils but does contain inclusions no more than two millimetres in size which determine its surface appearance. It is a stone which is not stratified and unlikely to foliate. We might suppose that, depending where it is quarried, Pietra d’Origine is enriched with different minerals which vary its shade, from light to dark. Six colours are available: AVORIO, ECRU, MORO, PERLA and FUMO. Finishes include Matt, Glossy and Rough. Rough is a structured texture with dots in relief, particularly suitable for use outdoors and wherever a high friction coefficient is required. All surfaces can be used on either floors or walls, indoors or outdoors, in residential, commercial or public buildings . Tiles from the Pietra d’Origine collection are available in the 90x60, 90x30,60x60, 60x30 and 30x30 cm sizes as well as in strips measuring 15x60, 10x60 or 5x60 and ornamental pieces fixed on mesh, such as Mosaico, Mattoncino, Quadrotta Sfalsata and Foglia. The whole range is produced 11 mm thick, solid, single-gauge, squared and ground. Pietra d’Origine combines high aesthetic quality obtained using pure selected mixes with particularly high technical performance achieved thanks to advanced industrial processes and thorough testing. The Pietra d’Origine collection designed by architect Mauro Bellei will be presented as a preview at Cersaie 2010, where it will be the key theme of the Eiffelgres stand.
