Collection Bellagio

BELLAGIO – the name conjures up associations: of the picturesque town on Lake Como that has been drawing tourists and celebrities from all over the world for centuries with its picturesque, Alpine view. And that served as a source of inspiration for the eponymous luxury hotel in Las Vegas. Villeroy & Boch Tiles, too, got carried away by the special charm of the northern Italian landscape and developed the BELLAGIO tile range, with a design that breathes life into natural originality with trend-setting aspects: Marble meets terrazzo.

The result is a new kind of stone look, one not found in nature. Discreet, punctual inclusions reminiscent of terrazzo create a decidedly modern appeal together with the look of finely veined marble. BELLAGIO is thus practically made for spaces with a minimalist design; thanks to its marble touch, it can also be used in a classical setting.

The BELLAGIO wall and floor concept includes floor tiles made of unglazed vilbostone porcelain stoneware and nonvitreous wall tiles. There are three formats in all available for floor designs that can be laid in all the same form or individual combinations: 30 x 60 cm, 60 x 60 cm and 60 x 120 cm. All formats come in one natural-looking colour, the rather cool grey shade of shadow.The finishes on these rectified tiles are smooth; they are optionally available in matt and are available either in slip-resistance class R9 or rough-polished.

For decorative purposes, there are 30 x 30-cm strip mats available, combining matt and rough-polished tile cuts. The play of matt-gloss effects creates an expressive look, they can be used in a variety of different ways, for example as a wide decorative wall strip or split to form borders. A functional, 5 x 5-cm mosaic bonded to 30 x 30 cm mesh opens up further decoration possibilities and permits realisation of floor-flush showers. The matching strip skirting in the format of 7.5 x 60 cm is destined for aesthetic wall edges that use the range.

The wall concept of the BELLAGIO range consists of rectified nonvitreous tiles in 30 x 60-cm and 40 x 120-cm formats, with the 120-cm length permitting shower-wall designs with little use of joints. The colours light shadow harmonise with the colour of the floor tiles, exhibiting an understated marble terrazzo design which is set off to great effect thanks to the glossy surface.

BELLAGIO permits applications in different styles throughout the house. In commercial buildings such as surgeries, office buildings, restaurants and hotels that are destined for designs with a contemporary marble look, BELLAGIO is also the right tile range to choose.
