Environmental and ecological issues are influencing design and aesthetic trends more and more within the field of architecture.
Quietstones Maximum is the result of the latest research conducted by Fiandre, applied to large sizes and aimed at lending an exceptionally authentic look to products created via the most advanced production techniques in the ceramic field.
The new Quietstones Maximum stones are in fact characterised for the first time by an extremely natural structured surface and are both pleasing on the eyes and to the touch.SPECIFICATIONS
Quietstones Maximum, available in a thickness of 6 mm, slate finish, and in extra-large sizes 300x100, 150x100 and 100x100 cm, embodies Fiandre's constant commitment in creating high performance products that are ecological, while being aesthetically in harmony with the environment.Colors:
