Gardenia Orchidea Pietra Viva

Pietra Viva draws inspiration from  the Adda river valley in Lombardy, an Italian region renowned for the beauty of its lakes & landscapes, is also the area of origin of so-called Ceppo stone, a material that has been used since Roman times and was especially popular between the 15th and mid-19th centuries.

This heterogeneous & highly decorative stone stands out for the presence of pebble-like fragments in contrasting colours. Gardenia Orchidea has reimagined the graphics of this stone in a versatile colour palette capable of meeting the needs of contemporary architecture.

The historical appeal of this stone stems above all from the use of exclusive 3DTech technology, which recreates the authentic look of timeworn floors with depressions and porosity typical of a stone surface exposed to many years of footfall.
