DALLAS, TX -- Marazzi recently announced the launch of Sabbia Marmo, a new porcelain tile collection that imbues any space with elegance and relaxation. Inspired by the sand floors of nature’s great oceans, Sabbia Marmo captivates with a soft curved, linear pattern that is reminiscent of undercurrent markings on the ocean floor. The designs’ flowing layers vary slightly in color tone. Movement, beauty, intrigue -- this product lives up to Marazzi’s role as the leader in tile design.

“Following the trend of Biophilic Design, this original Marazzi porcelain tile design was created to offer a look and feel that takes its inspiration from the beauty of sand found in nature’s oceans,” said Shelly Halbert, director of product design at Dal-Tile Corporation. “The resulting design flows and moves in a soft curved, liner pattern. To enhance the tactile experience of Sabbia Marmo, we have added an application to the surface that gives it the feel of light sand to the touch. Visually, you’ll see hints of gloss reflected in the lighter veins, adding dimension and movement to the floor. This new collection offers four on-trend matte colors: black, white, medium gray and dark gray. To finish off the collection, we added a 12- x 24-inch linear mosaic in all colors. Sabbia Marmo offers daring looks to express unique style.”

“With its contemporary design and the addition of StepWise Technology, Sabbia Marmo will be great for commercial projects both indoors and out,” said Tamara Grandusky, senior director of national accounts at Dal-Tile Corporation. “Tile with StepWise Technology is 50% more slip-resistant than ordinary tile. Sabbia Marmo is appropriate for both residential and commercial use as indoor floors, walls and countertops, as well as exterior floor applications.”

This modern take on the sands of time is available in three large format sizes -- 12 x 24, 24 x 24 and 24 x 48 inches -- plus an eye-catching linear strip mosaic (mesh-mounted). Waterproof, stain-proof, dent-proof, scratch-resistant and fire-resistant, this product contains zero VOCs, zero PVCs, zero formaldehyde and no allergens.  Sabbia Marmo, made in the U.S., also features SimpliClean for easy cleaning.
