In addition to this, the power of biophilia is not to be underestimated when it comes to creating interiors that uplift users’ wellbeing – especially in urban environments. The Terrazotech collection evokes the historic jigsaw-like effect of Venetian terrazzo made of natural stone, with excellent durability and hygienic properties meaning it can be used in commercial environments such as airports, laboratories, supermarkets and shopping centres. The English Wood collection evokes oak timber, a material synonymous with elegance. Yet unlike natural wood, these tiles have exceptional strength and durability and waterproofing, are not affected by temperature fluctuations and never warp. Ideal for underfloor heating, they have better thermal properties than wood, spreading heat evenly and preventing mould formation. In both cases Casalgrande Padana’s products evoke natural materials, yet bring enhanced modern function.
