Collection Lightplay

Colour is staging a comeback! In the past, interior designs tended to be subdued and presented in neutral tones as far as colour was concerned. Today, however, expressive colours are returning to trendy interior design: walls painted in matt colours create elegant and at the same time minimalist atmospheres – such as the new colour concept LIGHTPLAY by Villeroy & Boch Tiles, with subtle nuances that make it just the right thing for sophisticated ceramic wall coverings. A special highlight: ‘PowderTouch, the new stone-matt finish the delicate feel of which adds emphasis to the elegant charm of these powdery hues.

LIGHTPLAY is a wall concept of rectified, nonvitreous tiles in a 33 x 100-cm format; its stone-matt, ‘PowderTouch’ surface is finished with the easy-clean CeramicPlus seal. These monochrome tiles are available in seven powdery, slightly grey colours: This colour concept is based on the neutral cream tone of cotton, joined by a rather cool, green-blue and a warm, beige-red colour scheme, each in gradations that range from gentle and bright to expressive and powerful. Choose from the cool shades of ash grey, pastel blue and velvet leaf, or the warm colours of canvas, nude and marsala. Depending on the planned design, you can use all of the colours singly – to create accented areas, for example – or you could combine them, whether to harmonise with a colour scheme, or more impulsively, in a powerful mixture of cool and warm colours.

Bring an additional stunning effect to wall coverings with décor tiles in the same format, available in all colours: The subtle relief of the 3D décor is reminiscent of upholstery. It enlivens the surface and brings a decidedly homely atmosphere to the room. There is a 33 x 50-cm decorative element available in all colours that plays with geometric lines and can be used to accentuate select surface areas. A special highlight: extremely narrow metal strips in the three colours – copper, silver and brass – bring sophisticated, shiny impulses to the pattern for added elegance.

Recommended matchign floor coverings are the new OAK PARK range in an oak look, and ABERDEEN, an adaptation of natural stone.

LIGHTPLAY, a trendy colour concept for the wall, consists of soft hues, and the modern matt finish ‘PowderTouch’ which is just as the name says - and very pleasant to the touch. This range is well-suited for applications throughout the home and has particular appeal for the style-conscious in search of a versatile flooring that will fit in well with a variety of furnishing styles and that interprets interior design in individual and trendy ways. For planners and architects, too, LIGHTPLAY provides a high-quality wall range sophisticated projects in residential, hotel and shop construction.
