Villeroy & Boch
01 product description
Generous concepts for spaces and minimalist designs for interiors continue to characterise the core trend in home furnishings. In open spaces, kept in emphatically reserved colours, some with personalised accents, use is made of such genuine materials as stone, metal and glass. Elemental construction materials such as steel, concrete and cement are also added to the design to give the space a distinctly architectural look.
X-Plane, a line of vilbostone fine nonvitreous ceramic for walls and floors from Villeroy & Boch, fits perfectly into this trend. The concept behind the design picks up on the original characteristics of such materials as cement or stucco and makes use of the design opportunities offered by ceramic to create an entirely novel look. With delicate colour gradations and the homogeneity of effects so typical for fine nonvitreous ceramic, X-Plane possesses its own particular kind of aesthetic, one that is simply perfect for use in creative and personalised concepts for demanding spaces. In private bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms, but also in more public areas, X-Plane fuses purist design with the advantages offered by fine nonvitreous ceramic to enable installation of robust, long-lasting but also extremely easy-care flooring with an exceptional look.
Homogeneous spatial effects are easy to achieve with the ground-breaking new large sizes of 60 x 120 cm and 30 x 120 cm. A space gains depth and width, an effect the very subtle metallic shimmer on the tile surface delicately underscores.
X-Plane is a modular fine nonvitreous ceramic concept for use on walls and floors. Tiles are available in the colours cream, beige, grey and anthracite and in the sizes 60 x 120 cm, 30 x 120 cm, 60 x 60 cm and 30 x 60 cm. All sizes offer anti-skid level R10, with size 30 x 60 cm being offered in addition with an anti-skid factor of R11 B. The extravagant staircase tile in the size 30 x 120 cm offers anti-skid factor R10 and is thus as interesting for architects as it is for private homebuilders. For decoration, there are mosaic tiles in all four colours in a bar-and-rod look that are delivered on adhered mesh sized 30 x 30 cm for easier installation. Narrow cut tiles sized 15 x 60 cm and 7.5 x 60 cm round out the concept for premium designer layouts.
