An element and material typical of traditional Milanese Architecture, Ceppo di Gré is usually used for external basements in the city’s buildings. It’s an Italian rock from the place of the same name, Gré, whose name means “rock with pebbles”. The collection has a marked irregularity of grains, or pebbles, with a mix of mini and macro-stone patterns that makes it visually striking and a stunning feature of residential or commercial areas, both indoors and outdoors. Ceramica Fioranese interprets the main characteristic of the material, offering a more structured ceramic version with the most common natural and polished finishes. The colours proposed are faithful to the original source of inspiration and create a harmonious and balanced context. The colours are in line with the Fioranese’s Dot series: the objective is to create environments in which the strong, hard features of stone are tempered by powdery, soft concrete. The inspiration behind this combination is the Bocconi University building in Milan (designed by the Irish firm Grafton in 2008), which has won multiple awards at international level, in which exposed concrete and Ceppo di Gré mix together in this sober, distinctive space in perfect harmony with the surrounding context of Milan.
