Calacatta

Product overview

Calacatta

Calacatta is a tribute to the Italian most refined and rare marbles with an emotional visual impact made of very bold veining with a crisp white background.

Nexion selected the finest marbles and created different slabs of contemporary designs and colours. This marble is characterized by the timeless elegance of white and grey in a contemporary aesthetical language.

Calacatta is part of the Kair collection which evokes the beauty of the prestigious marbles that wrote important pages in the history of classic and modern architecture.
