Mate is a series of glazed porcelain tile based on a theme of opposites. Inspired by contrasts and contradictions, the series juxtaposes Earth, a style with coarse and irregular characteristics, alongside Marble, a style with timeless elegance. Earth and Marble, with their various shapes, colors and sizes, are designed to live singularly or together, telling a story of two separate and opposing entities coming together as one.
The collection is made up of a variety of shapes: Square, Rectangle, Hexagon, Chevron, Decorative Fes and Mosaic.
Colors + Sizes
Mate is available in two styles (Earth and Marble) and six colors:
Earth: (Terra Avorio, Terra Fumo, Terra Grigio, Terra Oliva) and Marble: (Marmo Bianco and Marmo Nero).
Mate is suitable for interior walls and floors including heavy-traffic commercial flooring applications. It is also suitable for exterior walls and floors.
Installation + Maintenance
Tiles can be installed using standard installation methods for thinset adhesives. A grout joint of 1/8" or greater is recommended. Use high quality adhesive from manufacturers such as Laticrete and Mapei, following manufacturers’ recommendations, depending on conditions. Clean with a neutral detergent.
Product photography and samples are to be used as a general guide. Color as well as percentage, size and shape of markings will vary. Sizes are nominal, not actual. This is a general rule of thumb when selecting natural stone or porcelain tile from any resource.
