The Tile Club
Welcome to the Marazzi Ceramics blog dedicated to design, architecture and ceramics. A space to talk about the ceramics and stoneware Marazzi is famous for all over the world, but also about new projects, experiences and interesting news.
Special Bathroom: Pure Nordic
Two bathroom ideas in simple style where the bond with nature is all-important.
Black&white decor and geometric patterns
A two-tone project: in an interplay of opposites, black and white contrast in the interior of a guest house with a contemporary style.
Botanic Fusion & Cocktail: a tropical urban oasis
In the province of Bergamo, MARGStudio architects renovated a disused venue, incorporating lush greenery as an integral part of the design, with a winter garden where indoor and outdoor spaces overlap. Wood- and stone-effect porcelain stoneware evokes the natural world.
Antibacterial stoneware that combines wood and stone
Alba, an eco-sustainable collection available in a wide range of sizes and surfaces, uses the new Puro Marazzi Antibacterial technology.
Tactile appeal goes digital
In the digital space of Palazzo Morando, Elle Decor has inaugured IperHotel, an installation by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba that redesigns locations for socialisation with the aid of a virtual storytelling that the architects themselves define as almost hyper-realistic. This augmented dimension has provided the ideal context for Marazzi products to express their genuine characteristics, in a digital space that “augments” knowledge of them and enables appreciation of their performances.
Towards glocal digital
Ludovica + Roberto Palomba produced the digital project for the Elle Decor Grand Hotel exhibition, pointing the way towards a new approach to temporary installations. Much more than just an exhibition, this is a real architectural project in the historic context of Palazzo Morando in Milan.

100% digital, by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba. It showcases Carácter, the first Marazzi collection made with the Puro Marazzi Antibacterial technology, and Grande stoneware slabs.
Wellness beside the sea and Mediterranean scrub
In Taormina, the Grand Hotel San Pietro has a spa overlooking the splendid panorama. Marble-effect floor coverings that amplify light, walls that resemble karstic rock and salt brick walls provide a natural effect ideal for relaxation.
Bathroom Special: The Spa
Connected, open spaces that highlight a relationship with the outside, light and natural elements. The spa bathroom evokes the ancient tradition of a room devoted to people’s well-being and to body worship. Materials that resemble natural stone, mosaics and warm earthy textures are favoured for the design of relaxation environments.
A spa at home
Bathroom design and furnishings are becoming increasingly high-performance. According to Giovanna Talocci, the desire for a domestic spa has accelerated the breakdown of rooms into functional and relaxation areas; according to Davide Vercelli, the internet and the way we use technologies can and must be a starting point for analysing the spaces of the future.
Dedicated to well-being
Safety in hospitals is a matter of flows of people and goods, as well as the choice of materials: antibacterial, hygienic and wear-resistant. However, safety is also a place where you can feel at home. We discuss this subject with Binini Partners, which specialises in designing hospitals.

Inspiration beyond the surface
From home furnishing to architecture, large sizes free the creativity of designers and encourage them to envisage new uses. Three applications face to face: the tables of Enzo Bauso, the decors of Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel and the facades of Asti Architetti.
Puro Marazzi Antibacterial
Thanks to built-in antibacterial technology, the new Puro Marazzi Antibacterial offerings creates a new generation of ceramic surfaces. Guaranteed intrinsic hygiene, throughout the life cycle of the ceramic covering.
