Atlas Concorde Marvel Travertine

Starting from the initial development, Atlas Concorde collections are conceived to create stylistic continuity between indoor and outdoor spaces capable of interpreting and suggesting styles and languages consistent with design projects. Marvel Travertine, one of Atlas Concorde’s latest an example of how a collection can express multiple tones of voice. The selection of floor and wall tiles feature a contemporary interpretation of one of the most classic materials in architecture, Travertine, used since ancient Rome for the decoration of outdoor spaces.

There are two designs for outdoor spaces in the collection: the Vein Cut and the Cross Cut. The Vein Cut reproduces the typical streaked appearance of travertine and is available with a nine mm or 20mm thickness, the latter for laying on driveways or on grass and gravel. The Cross Cut version reproduces the appearance of a stone characterised by extensive shading and is available only in a grip version with nine mm thickness, ideal for patios, terraces and pedestrian spaces not crossed by vehicles. The collection is available in three warm shades in soft hues inspired by the Mediterranean: Sand, White and Pearl. While polishing travertine would produce a slippery stone surface, thanks to the application of specific substances the outdoor version of Marvel Travertine is slip resistant.

In contrast with natural stone, porcelain tiles graphically reproduce the porous, perforated surface of travertine, preserving the aspect of permeability, which is highly valued for outdoor spaces. Porcelain tiles also incorporate many important features that make them perfect for outdoor spaces: they are weather resistant, nonporous, waterproof, and stain resistant. They are also scratch resistant and non-slip, maintenance-free, maintain their natural beauty, and are resistant to chemicals. This is particularly important when used with pools that require water treatment additives.
