The inspiration for Plimatech Architectural design comes from high up in the Martell Valley of the Alto Adige region.

Modeled on a variety of granite called Plima, this collection combines the innumerable technical and design advantages of porcelain stoneware with the natural look and feel of a highly sought-after stone. It was in fact a local businessman who discovered it in the1980s when he had a large boulder cut from the banks of the Plima stream, unveiling a glittering blue-grey granite. With its unique characteristics, this South Tyrol pegmatite is distinctive for its rough texture, studded with brilliant crystalline formations and light-dark mottling distributed in a varied manner over the surface.

The Plimatech collection presents three different colors, adding two further proposals to the typical blue-grey shade of Plima granite (reinterpreted with Plimagray), one in white (Plimawhite) and the other in beige (Plimabeige), thus affording the designer a wide range of compositional possibilities.

The aesthetic heterogeneity characteristic of natural stone is captured in the collection through three graphic variants. 01, the most minimalist is softly veined and, especially in the large format, is particularly appropriate to confer character on architecture of more essential taste. 02 has a more variegated appearance, with slight shading tending towards white, designed to add a rough, textural touch to spaces. Finally, 03 is characterized by a high number of crystalline formations that give it a wavier line, ideal for design contexts that, between interior and exterior spaces, pursue a dialogue with the surrounding natural environment.
