La Pietra Compattata
Cold-pressed tiles comprised of raw & recycled natural materials
Produced with environmentally responsible design and architecture in mind, our newly launched tile ranges from La Pietra Compattata are comprised of 60% natural raw and recycled materials. Made using a cold-pressed method rather than a gas-fired kiln, two core styles CROMIE & PIETRE offer a unique new surface material suitable for interior and exterior use in residential and commercial settings.
Designed to enable the transformation of waste into a new hard surface material offering advanced technical performance, La Pietra Compattata tiles are created through an environmentally friendly process using recycled natural raw materials recovered from Italy’s stone quarries, including quartz, granite and porphyry. This stone powder mix is combined with coloured pigments, recycled water and cement to create a uniquely textured innovative material, which offers the appearance of natural stone. To produce the final product, the mix is cold-pressed and left to dry and harden naturally, eliminating the use of gas-fired kilns.
