    Simply sophisticated

    Tamashi – soul in Japanese – is the new collection of wood-inspired porcelain tiles proposed by Ceramiche Refin, inspired by the most essential and contemporary natural woods currently used in furnishings. The result of painstaking research to find the perfect graphic and colour balance, the collection offers uniform, balanced surfaces characterized by fine, dense, parallel veins and subtle colour nuances. 

    To create Tamashi, Refin worked on reduction, intending to obtainthe quintessence of wood: the image of cleanliness comes from the absence of knots and the choice of dense, fine, and regular veins, resulting in a seamless, linear, and fluid surface. The result is a modern, elegant, and natural simplicity that stems from a skillful graphic and colour balance.

    The collection is barely moved by a few flashing effects, and is featured by a deliberate absence of marks and contrasts.

    The surface is not flattened, but rather the minimal and refined style is emphasized, allowing for the definition of large and seamless scenes. Tamashi shows a delicate shading effect, originated by the veining pattern and subtle nuances; the matte finish and light structure accentuate the effect of warmth and essentiality, rich in natural charm.

    The palette expands from the traditional woods to includeseven colours that Refin carefully studied – ranging from light to dark – to give the collection a new modernity. The evocative names chosen for the shade – Sugar, Vanilla, Cream, Tea, Walnut, Caviar, and Pepper – provide an unusual synaesthesia that conveys pleasant sensations.

    Tamashi is offered in the 25x150cm size, the classic board that is updated to design rooms with a sophisticated taste, while retaining all the charm of the material.

    The Leaf decoration is available in the 60x60cm size, and in three colour combinations: Leaf Tea (Cream+Tea), Leaf Walnut (Vanilla+Walnut), Leaf Pepper (Sugar+Pepper). Depending on its rotation direction, the arch pattern can create multiple geometries to give rhythm to both floor and wall surfaces.
