Marvel Shine is the new ceramic tile collection inspired by four fine white marbles, thanks to which Atlas Concorde has been able to further expand its already extensive range of marble-effect surfaces. The new natural variants are all rooted in Italy, where “white gold” has been shining for centuries in all its purity, recalling a history of illustrious sculptors and monumental architecture.
Marvel Shine draws on this prestigious legacy and translates it into a concept of a new Italian Renaissance, which evolves classicism into an unprecedented contemporary style ideal for designing the spaces of our time.
To develop this collection, Atlas Concorde sought out the assistance of SAVEMA, a leader in the international marble industry that made available all its experience for the selection of the most suitable references, confirming Atlas Concorde’s role as a standard-setter when it comes to the ceramic reinterpretation of natural marble.
The four variants of the range, inspired mainly by Calacatta and Statuario marbles, share a bright, pure white background varied by veins in warm and cool tones.
Calacatta Delicato has a bright warm white background crisscrossed by subtle light grey streaks. Calacatta Prestigio is inspired by a fine-grained marble with a pure ivory-white background and sparse thin grey-beige veins alternating with some broader branches that determine its value. Statuario Supremo stands out as the most refined and sought-after stone in recent years thanks to the extreme brilliance of its white background and its broad light grey veins. Calacatta Imperiale is perfect for spaces of sumptuous elegance thanks to the crystal white background traversed by precious yellow-gold and grey streaks.
Esthetic purity and natural majesty make the surfaces of Marvel Shine perfect for architectural and interior projects where the contemporary nature of the spaces merges with the timeless strength of a noble material. Combinations mixed and matched with other products in the Marvel range and other Atlas Concorde collections also add infinite expressive potential to the collection, expanding the boundaries of style.
Marvel Shine can be laid in a bookmatch pattern replicating the way marble slabs are used on walls for an even more spectacular effect. It’s available in porcelain tiles in the large 120×278 cm format and in the 75×150 cm format, making it possible to create a 6×3 m graphic composition.
The collection features a wide range of formats that today Atlas Concorde makes available to designers around the world: large porcelain slabs measuring 160×320 cm with a 6 mm thickness, slabs for furnishings (Atlas Plan) measuring 162×324 cm, the large format measuring 120×278 cm with a 6 mm thickness and so on down to strips measuring 37.5×75 cm. Completing the selection are single-fired white body wall tiles in the brand new 50×120 cm format and in the traditional 40×80 cm size.
The two classic Matte and Polished surfaces are joined by the new Silk finish, inspired by a traditional workmanship of marble that introduces a new sensation in the realm of tactile ceramic experiences: a silky, soft touch that also reflects the light. It gives surfaces a naturally velvety appearance, highly valued in contemporary design.
Marvel Shine is the latest addition to the rich Marvel family, further expanding it with new creative solutions. The Scenic Mosaic, made from 120×278 cm porcelain slabs cut into smaller pieces, makes it possible to reproduce the bookmatch look in original shapes and even on curved surfaces for added design versatility, ideal for interiors with a eye-catching impact.
The decorations in the range of single-fired wall tiles are instead designed to soften the intense white of marble-effect surfaces through the use of precious materials (including gold, pink gold and platinum) and elegant colour accents.
