Ambient

Product overview

A minimalist way

The Ambient collection offers a new ceramic interpretation of cement, a cornerstone of modern and contemporary architecture, a mix of engineering strength with expressive essentiality.

Nexion reinterpreted its original source in a minimalist way, mixing superior performance with aesthetic appeal.

The results are surfaces with excellent performance that gives the impression of being solid color with a slight ripple while, but looking closer they are distinguished by a slight grit perceived by our hand.
