Racines collection


Racines - Stone look wall and floor tiles for indoor and outdoor use

Novoceram, French ceramic producer since 1863, unveils a collection of tiles in coloured body porcelain stoneware for indoor and outdoor use that gives pride of place to a traditional French stone.

Racines is a collection of tiles in coloured body porcelain stoneware that Novoceram, French ceramic producer since 1863, has designed for interior and exterior floors and walls.

Two aesthetically different but geologically similar stones from the French tradition are at the origin of Racines. The ceramic reproduction is accurate and precise given the abundant details including shades, inclusions and other natural imperfections that decorate the surface.

The respect for nature and the ancient tradition of stone extraction and processing are the two characteristics that have shaped this collection. This is why Racines can be considered as a splendid tribute to this coveted natural material.

Racines has a wide variety of different dimensions, such as 10×60 cm, 30×60 cm, 20×20 cm, 5x5cm in mosaic form, not to mention 80×80 cm and 60x60cm. The latter two, as well as the 60×90 tile size, also belong to the Outdoor Plus range with 2-cm thick tiles are designed for outdoor use. Racines is available in two colours: Doré, only available for the Outdoor version, and Clair.
