Three modern shades of brown — plus one of white — bring a fully functional palette to Harmony. Chord (black/cherry), Note (gray brown) (pictured), Pitch (red brown) and Tone (white) can be used individually or together to produce a personal design opus.
Harmony looks like wood but performs better, according to its manufacturer. Porcelain is impervious and withstands water as well as freezing conditions when most woods cannot. The material can be used outdoors — even with temperature extremes there is no peeling, fading or cracking. (This collection would be ideal for ventilated wall systems). Additionally, Harmony can be used for showers, bathrooms and saunas — extreme heat and moisture won’t affect it. Outdoor living areas, walkways and pool decks are okay — freeze-thaw conditions won’t result in spalling or cracking.
21% recycled content plus no VOC emissions align with low life cycle costs, a hygienic surface and domestic availability to position Harmony as a highly desirable choice for modern families as well as architects and designers, according to Marazzi.
