Tales from the Villas
Ceramiche Keope presents the porcelain stoneware 9Cento collection, a line of marble varieties and stones inspired by early 20th Century European modernist architecture with new fascinating meanings in contemporary contexts.
The 9Cento series boasts an original palette of 6 chromatic variants which bring to mind the luxurious atmospheres of modern villas at the turn of the last Century. Modern-day eclecticism plays with combinations of materials, colours and reinterpretations of the past and makes the marble variants extremely fashionable with cross-contaminations from the various origins and fashions of the time.
Expressive research and technical finesse are reunited in all six sizes of 9Cento - all of which measure 120 cm along the side, with the exception of the smallest size, the 60x60 cm square. The large slab, 6 mm in thickness, combines technical strength and aesthetic superiority in a size which beautifully presents the unpredictable textures of the ceramic marble surfaces.
Beneath a perfect lapped finishing, the rigorous design welcomes the unexpectedness of the natural signs in the 5 marble varieties which then blend together to form a further Palladian decorative variant:
