Anthology by Lea Ceramiche: going beyond what exists in nature

The new collection Anthology by Lea Ceramiche in full-body porcelain stoneware, for floors and walls, reinterprets traditional materials such as marble and stone in a contemporary key, conveying an original and realistic visual and tactile experience. This is a refined material with an intensely sensuous impact, in which the company fully expresses the innovative potential and the profound design research inherent in its DNA. Anthology stems from a skillful combination of distinctive ingredients that give rise to five totally different subjects: marbles and stones of different extraction, carefully gauged, come together, enhancing the merits of both, in exclusive combinations not found in nature.

The collection expresses deep and mature stylistic research, combined with the application of the finest manufacturing and decorative technologies, like the innovation introduced by the Panariagroup, which allows for perfect synchronization of the graphic design with the three-dimensional structure created on the surface. The depth of the range is studied on the basis of a precise technical and aesthetic combination. For each of the five colors available (white, beige, dove grey, light grey, anthracite), there is a choice of different surface finishes (time-worn, natural, sandblasted) with the graphic pattern that best brings out its special features. The three surfaces have the ability to modulate various depths of matter and generate different tactile sensations, eliminating the boundaries between the artificial and natural dimensions. All this makes the collection extremely versatile, suitable for any design purpose, in residential or commercial and indoor or outdoor settings. The whole range is available in the formats 60x120 cm, 60x60 cm and 30x60 cm and with a thickness of 9.5 mm; also available in the version Rough Grip, 60x120 cm and 20 mm thick.
