Outdoor design is increasingly Bio-inspired. With no more borders between indoors and outdoors, nature and design blend as one, forming a single anthem to life (from the Greek βίος).
The garden makes its way into the home thanks to furnishing elements crafted with natural materials, lush plants and botanical patterns. Terraces and gardens become an extension of interiors, perfectly set into the surrounding environments.
Sitting rooms, dining rooms and open-air studies are the new homes to hedonism, furnished with light, hybrid furniture fashioned from technical, resistant, beautiful materials able to satisfy our sense of beauty and need for harmony: wood, steel, wicker and tubular structures in lightweight alloys, resistant and easy to move, given a warm touch by accessories in natural fibres such as cord and linen.
Among the outdoor homing materials best able to offer a combination of sturdiness and beauty, porcelain stoneware goes the extra mile, offering maximum resistance to sunlight, water, scratching, abrasions, chemical substances and aggressive liquids. It also requires virtually zero maintenance, and is ecological and sustainable .
Our Bio-inspiration comes from wood and takes shape on stoneware thanks to the most sophisticated digital printing techniques, which allow us to reproduce any kind of wood, for surfaces able to transmit vitality and warmth: all that’s missing is the fragrance of the resin.
To make this perfect transition between IN and OUT, we imagine FAPNest, elegant wood-effect stoneware tiles in five warm, sophisticated matt wood effects - Natural, Oak, Maple, Brown, Silver - and two sizes, the 20x120 stave tile and the original Chevron 7.5x45 herringbone, featuring the endless veining effects and nuances of the wood.
FAPNest comes with a collection of solutions and special trims for a perfect finish, and three mosaics to bring a touch of style to interiors: Tratti, a decoration with an industrial flavour formed by fine listel tiles; Slash, a combination of deliberately irregular mosaic tile fragment, and Cube, a hexagonal mosaic to create original perspectives. Thanks to the R11 finish of the OUT version, the charm of surfaces that were once the preserve of interiors is able to transfer its splendid appeal.
