NOCTURNE Restaurant

When it comes to discerning interior design, the unique charm of marble remains a major favourite. The NOCTURNE range by Villeroy & Boch Tiles reinterprets the timeless elegance of a variety of authentic marble looks, applying a comprehensive décor concept to transform these into exquisite, modern styles. The result is fascinating. Inspired by Calacatta Gold, Statuario and Black Ice, these expressive porcelain stoneware tiles have been designed with a richly varied and highly faithful imitation of the veining that characterises the types of marble on which they are based. That is how these high-quality ceramics create an impressive, extremely noble look in classic and modern interiors alike.

NOCTURNE features polished and rough-polished basic and décor tiles in glazed porcelain stoneware for stylish walls and floors. The three colours white, white gold and black are available in the formats 60 x 60 cm and 60 x 120 cm and permit highly aesthetic, monochrome installations and high-contrast colour combinations. Depending on the colour chosen or blend of colours, the result is a marvellously warm or a rather cool effect. White flower and black flower are 60 x 60-cm décor tiles designed as impressive, blossom-shaped ornaments. These two-coloured, twelve-sided tiles can be used to create attractive décors in wide strips or for complete wall and floor surfaces.

There is also a wide selection of décor tiles made of glazed porcelain stoneware that are suitable for use on the wall. These open up a variety of creative possibilities for individual designs with 25 x 30-cm honeycomb-shaped tiles in two versions (honeycomb gold with golden accented edges to match the basic tiles in white gold; and honeycomb black, to match the basic tiles in white and black with black contrasts). They lend surfaces a calm, gently sweeping pattern. 21 x 21-cm square décor tiles are also available, optionally with a gold application to match the basic tile in white gold, and multicolor to complement all three basic tile colours. Applied as a strip or over a surface, this décor emphasises the modern aspect of NOCTURNE. The décor concept is rounded off by hexagonal tiles, 20 x 23 cm in size, that come in three colours: white, multicolor and black; these can be installed to create mosaics in ever-new patterns, with surprising visual effects.

NOCTURE is a high-quality design concept that evolves valuable marble looks in ways that are stylish and contemporary at the same time while combining them with selected décors. With its noble aesthetics, the NOCTURNE range brings understated glamour and the charm of timeless beauty to classically elegant and lastingly modern furnishing concepts – whether throughout a private indoor setting, in high-end hotels and shops or in discerning office buildings.
