Like its namesake, the perceptual phenomenon in which multiple senses spontaneously overlap, Synestesia is a floor and wall covering collection that awakens the sight and touch. It is a journey into the material through senses that contaminate, overlap and mingle to see the softness of the surface and touch the intense veins running across it.
Four sumptuous ceramic marbles that capture the disruptive beauty of nature for unique and distinctive contemporary luxury interiors. The marbles in the collection, chosen from the finest varieties, have been skilfully reproduced in Slimtech, the large-size laminated porcelain stoneware (up to 120x278 cm) that offers new and unprecedented design prospects for architecture and the home.
The extremely high technical and aesthetic performance of large Slimtech slabs is combined with the exceptional antibacterial, hygienic and surface protection action of Protect® technology, which eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria, making floor and wall coverings healthy, safe and protected.
