Importers of Italian and European porcelain stoneware and glass products, Studio Masson, recently launched new collections that are catching the eye of the architectural and décor communities. The tile, floor and wall collections offer the illusion of natural components such as wood, stone and concrete but without the disadvantages of these products such as fragility and wear-and-tear.

The majority of product offering is deemed eco-friendly as the products are entirely comprised of natural materials, thereby conforming to European Green Standards. Most of the products are also comprised of between 30% and 40% recycled material and are made of non-volatile, non-polluting materials.

Fiandre
Fiandre is a leading Italian producer that continues to introduce unique new ranges. The Musa+ collection offers an assortment of sizes, colours and textures that can be combined into a variety of patterns and designs. Eminent Wood is new to the Maximum collection and adds a wooded look to the large format sintered porcelain slabs. Fiandre’s innovative Active 2.0 is a self-cleaning treatment incorporated into the tiles and slabs during production which consist of clean-air and anti-bacterial properties. The “active” ingredient is found within the body of the porcelain and thus cannot be worn off over time, resulting in the tiles and slabs remaining effective for their entire lifetime.

Porcelain Gres
Porcelain Gres produces on-trend and innovative collections, including porcelain pavers and large format tiles and slabs. Studio Masson now offers a range of collections, including the Quartzite, Pure Wood, Urban and Outdoor ranges.

Sicis
Sicis is the world leader in glass mosaics, tiles and slabs and their products are exclusively available at Studio Masson. The Vetrite slab collection, which fuses colour and texture between two glass sheets, demands the attention of any room. Studio Masson’s new extended showroom is displaying the Pixal Art Mosaics, Orientale Mosaics and Mosaic Blends.

Sapienstone
This porcelain slab collection has introduced an induction integrated smart cooking surface, where induction plates are integrated into the porcelain slab. This provides a visually unobstructed counter top pattern for any modern kitchen.

Gigacer
“The key aspect in design is the harmony of colours and the effect colour has on man and space,” said Le Corbusier. The Le Corbusier Polychromie Architectural, Molitor and Tokyo collections are based on Le Corbusier’s Architectural Polychromy innovative materials in porcelain stoneware for architecture.

Emil
Trend, quality and superb value encompass the Tele di Marmi and Viva LegnoEmil collections. Multiple textures combined with innovative designs makes these collections stand out in a room.

“There are no longer boundaries and limitations to the achievement of architectural realisations where the beauty of nature can be combined with all the unsurpassed exceptional physical attributes of fine porcelain and glass,” comments Heidi Masson, co-founder and co-owner of Studio Masson.
