When it preserves all natural and physical qualities of the stone, it is born from the same geomorphic process, with the same molecular composition. But it is free from any imperfections, defects, dimensional differences and impurities. A real, yet designed stone, made to explore the creative and architectural possibilities of an archetypal material, overcoming the physical and chemical limits of natural stone. Mineral stone (also known as sintered stone) can be produced in large slabs, over 3 meters long, flawless in every respect.
IDYLIUM slabs are safe because natural (100% biodegradable oxides, clays and feldspars) and hygienic because hyper-technological: ultra-compact, inert and free of any porosity that could host fungi and bacteria.
The IDYLIUM factory is a 4.0 quarry, where technology reproduces millenary geomorphic processes in a few minutes. In this way we avoid the deleterious extractive activities typical of natural stones (marble, onyx and quartzites).
NON-POROUS AND HYGIENIC
In the microscopic dimension can hide a great risk for health. IDYLIUM surfaces can be easily and effectively cleaned and sanitized because they are ultra-compact, free of porosity, resistant to chemical agents and thermal shock. They are also free from heavy metals and chemical additives and therefore totally inert.
IDYLIUM is hyper-materia: provided with all the beauty offered to stones by nature but with superior performance brought by technology. Once laid, nothing can damage it. Resistant to UV rays and scratches, it eliminates the worry of sun damage and deterioration. Domestic spaces can be reinvented: kitchen countertops get rid of all the complements and you can cut and beat directly on them.
IDYLIUM surfaces do not fear temperature variations and resist intense cold and frost, even in direct contact with running and brackish water. IDYLIUM slabs are ideal for outdoor design: furnishing, terraces, floorings, pools and ventilated facades. A new form of beauty combined with environmental sustainability.
HEAT-RESISTANT AND FIREPROOF
Even fire has no effect on IDYLIUM surfaces. Thanks to their absolute heat resistance they can be used directly as cooking hobs, with integrated burners, and in the construction of fireplaces and bio-fireplaces. Composed of inert materials and therefore fireproof, IDYLIUM slabs are a safe choice for public spaces and contract.
The only surface that expresses itself also in depth and becomes three-dimensional. Special inclusions of flakes, grains, micronized minerals and metal powders homogeneously populate the entire thickness of the IDYLIUM stone, making it extra-ordinary.
A further exploration of the three-dimensionality of surfaces. IDYLIUM technology allows for high reliefs of extraordinary depth involving up to 30% of the thickness of the slabs. Natural textures or design patterns to the highest degree of sophistication: every creative input is possible.
The most advanced digital acquisition and reproduction techniques, along with continuous stylistic research, interpret natural patterns with absolute fidelity and impressive richness of detail, and create cutting-edge design textures with maximum definition.
Soft matte texture typical of natural stone, smooth, pleasant to the touch.
Ultra-bright effect that confers depth and preciousness.
Rough, irregular texture with a light and silky effect on both surface and color.
A structured rough finishing with a natural dynamism, extremely charming to the touch.
