Endless

Product overview

Endless

Endless collection inherits the expressive power of concrete, a material that wrote important pages in the history of architecture and plays a fundamental role in modern design thanks to the capability to radiate a strong tactile energy to every context surrounding it.

Nexion examined to the smallest the remarkable artifacts made by Italian craftsmen, characterized by the intense touch and feel of this matter. In its design lab, Nexion worked to give large size slabs the delicate variations of tones that we find in the small, renown Italian cementine, creating the soft effect of an “endless” surface.

The result is a ceramic collection made unique by the shade variations, sharp patterns and a high tactile vocation, which transmits a timeless and contemporary personality to the surrounding space.
