Antique Black

Product overview

A modern Italian reinterpretation

Antique Black is a modern Italian reinterpretation of the Granite from Angola, with a dark brown, almost black color and medium-large grain. Very minimalist and multi-purpose material.

Nexion selected this finest marble and made its remarkable colour nuances perfect for creations with a classic and traditional character.

Antique Black is part of Apuane collection that brings the flavor of the prestigious marbles extracted in the Apuan Alps and belongs to the most recent trend of contemporary design and architecture.
