Tucson fireplace room new product 2018

Contemporary floor concept for indoors and out 

Expressive, natural stone effects are the latest thing for high-quality indoor and outdoor floor coverings. The new TUCSON floor range has been developed by Villeroy & Boch in response to this trend and reproduces the look of rustic stone using a selection of carefully-chosen natural shades in rich compositions of colour. Vitalising design highlights, such as subtle traces of rust, lend the unglazed porcelain stoneware a unique sense of authenticity. A particular advantage: TUCSON comes in non-slip class R11/B, which makes the range the ideal choice for wet areas.

TUCSON tiles can be installed in harmonious arrangements indoors and out. The tiles are made of vilbostone porcelain stoneware and available in the formats 30 x 30 cm, 30 x 60 cm, 60 x 60 cm, 40 x 80 cm and 80 x 80 cm. OUTDOOR TILES in 60 x 60 x 2 cm format are also available and can be used to create harmonious transitions outdoors or an elegant continuity between indoor and outdoor areas. These high-quality OUTDOOR TILES are colour-fast, light-fast and weather-resistant, and their vilbostoneplus surface finish also makes them hard-wearing and easy to clean. Since the tiles can be laid in a variety of different arrangements, they can be used in virtually any situation.

They are available in four natural shades - light rock, sunny rock, warm rock and black rock - and produce a vibrant play of colour. The tiles are harmonious gradations and can be installed unmixed or in different colour combinations. Thanks to their matt, relief-effect surface all formats have a non-slip class R10/A rating. 30 x 30 cm, 30 x 60 cm and 60 x 60 cm formats and all OUTDOOR TILES come in non-slip class R11/B and are therefore suitable for swimming pool surrounds in private and semi-public areas.

The appearance of walls can be enhanced with a subtle “mini brick” decoration, which is bonded to a 30 x 30 cm mesh and available in all colours. Also available is a functional 5 x 5 cm mosaic bonded to a 30 x 30 cm mesh. Its non-slip class R10/B rating makes it perfect for use in walk-in showers. The TUCSON range is completed by strip skirting in 7.5 x 60 cm format.

The rustic appearance of the range makes it particularly suitable for achieving a modern countryhouse style. The pale grey of light rock and the stark anthracite of black rock are also ideal for minimalist modern interiors. TUCSON can be used in houses and high-quality residential buildings, in any room including halls, kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, home offices and outdoor areas such as balconies and terraces. The tiles also have a variety of applications in public areas such as foyers, waiting rooms, guest rooms and shops. TUCSON can be used to create functional, aesthetically-pleasing arrangements on the walls and floors of wet areas that require a higher degree of slip resistance, such as swimming pools or wellness facilities.
