Essenze Rovere Tortora

Product overview

Prestigious essence

Essenze brings the intense taste of four precious woods that are highly appreciated in the architectural field for their ability to combine solidity and durability with refined natural elegance.

Nexion selected some of the most renowned varieties of Eucalyptus, Walnut, Middle Oak and Tortora Oak, characterized by fascinating patterns of knots, veins, nuances and other natural elements. This surface is extremely durable, highly resistant to chemicals, stains and abrasions which makes it particularly suitable for high traffic public spaces.

The result is a collection that interprets the spontaneous and authentic charm of prestigious essences with a modern language, making it functional to the realization of the most ambitious projects.
