THE SUSTAINABLE LIGHTNESS OF MATTER
In this innovative 300x150 cm format, MAXIMUM, is a material that combines the established, classical characteristics of Fiandre’s top of the range porcelain stoneware, with new advantages and high technical performance: lightness and versatility.
MAXIMUM FIANDRE EXTRALITE® combines complete design freedom with high flexibility: if on the one hand the maxi-slab drastically reduces the amount of breaks in the design unit, on the other the range of sub-formats ensures every type of requirement is met. MAXIMUM introduces a new concept of architectural surfaces that goes beyond traditional ceramics: it allows designers to reinvent design criteria, giving them the utmost freedom and minimal constraints. The lower weight of the individual slab is a logistical advantage for transportation
and handling at the building site, and a practical advantage in special contexts, such as laying over existing surfaces, the shipping industry, and the field of furnishing.
SOLUTIONS & APPLICATIONS FOR ARCHITECTURE WITHOUT LIMITS
MAXIMUM is ideal for covering any surface: thanks to its greater lightness, ease of installation (cutting, drilling, grouting, etc.) and maintenance compared with traditional ceramic slabs, MAXIMUM is especially recommended for installation on floors and wall coverings, in residential and business settings, both interior and exterior. MAXIMUM is “super sized” even for ventilated façades: through applications that take advantage of the structural features of the slabs in terms of lightness and size, it is possible to revamp the exterior walls of any building, ensuring their correct thermal insulation and a distinct aesthetic improvement.
A NEW CONCEPT OF CREATIVITY TAILORED LIKE A SECOND SKIN IN 6 mm THICKNESS
becomes an integral part of furnishing items, covering tables, room dividers, doors, ceilings, backlit walls, seating and bathroom accessories. Whether industrial design or custom-made, all MAXIMUM products are easily made, giving the interior designer complete freedom of expression and the ability to create a total look for perfect aesthetic continuity between floors, coatings and furnishings. For more exclusive design ideas, the traditional stone of choice becomes the distinctive element of any setting, thanks to MARMI MAXIMUM.
Thanks to several decades of experience, their aptitude for experimenting and their ability for innovation, GranitiFiandre has been able, during the course of their history, to combine ceramic tradition with technology, concern for the environment with creative research. These characteristics have lead this Reggio Emilia company—a leader in producing high-end, full-body porcelain stoneware—to create a new material for architecture and design: now, MAXIMUM, the first porcelain stoneware material on offer in international markets at 4.5 sq. meters per slab, has expanded their range with new “smart” formats, such as the 300x100 cm and 100x100 cm. MAXIMUM materials in 10 mm thickness or 320x160 cm format can be produced upon request.
The MARMI MAXIMUM materials are available with two finishes, honed and polished, to meet various aesthetic and application requirements.
MAXIMUM, the result of the most advanced research combining performance and aesthetics, is the first 100% porcelain stoneware material in such impressive sizes made in a completely polished finish as well. This feature bestows additional value to a product already recognised as one of a kind.
VARIETY AND BOOK-MATCHING
MARMI MAXIMUM offers fine, decorative solutions, enriched by inimitable colour variations and vein effects that are always unique. For Premium White, Calacatta and Calacatta Statuario, book-matched surfaces A and B are also available in format 300x150 cm.
MAKE YOUR PROJECT A MASTERPIECE OF STYLE
The size of MARMI MAXIMUM is not the only remarkable feature that makes them comparable to the most exquisite and rare quarry marbles. Glossy surfaces, elegant details, and fine veins all contribute to increasing the perceived value of any environment, respecting and enhancing the stylistic choices of the designer and the wishes of the client.
MARMI MAXIMUM TAKES FORM AND BECOMES DÉCOR
MAXIMUM goes beyond the two-dimensional concept of ceramic products. Thanks to its extraordinary size, combined with the thin yet extremely strong thickness of just 6 mm, MAXIMUM enters the realm of products recommended for industrial design and custom-made furnishings in every respect. The resistance and ease
of cleaning already appreciated in porcelain stoneware for floors and walls, are today on offer again with MAXIMUM with a broader surface area, unbroken and free of discontinuities, and therefore recommended for kitchen counter tops, table and coffee table tops, seating and bathroom accessories.
