ROCKY.ART - Living room

The link between nature and art is characterised by the irresistible values of natural authenticity and creativity. This collision of design fields is home to the ROCKY.ART concept³ series from Villeroy & Boch Tiles, which combine a natural stone look with abstract floral décor in a premium wall and floor concept.

The basis of the design concept is a porcelain stoneware tile in five formats and four harmoniously coordinated shades of beige and grey, with a design evoking the symbiosis between rustic natural stone and concrete. The result is a unique stone look, which, although not to be found in nature, has a very authentic appearance. These simple nonvitreous wall tiles also have a very natural look and pleasant feel with their light matt PowderTouch finish.

The ROCKY.ART décor concept implements the theme of “Nature and art” in various different artistic abstract floral motifs. Choose from glazed porcelain stoneware tiles with highly magnified hydrangea blossoms detailing in abstract patterns and surrealist colours designed to go with all the basic tiles – lively and vitalising with fine yellow and green nuances. The décor tiles can be used over large areas for walls and floors; alternatively as individual feature tiles or in rows.

The hydrangea motif has also been used for a wall décor motif. The colourful décor tile, which is available in the format 33 x 99 cm, has a special glass overlay to give the pattern a sculptured, three-dimensional look, and a tactile quality that makes touching irresistible.

Nonvitreous tiles are also available in the format 20 x 60 cm for walls: in the two paler basic tile colours as well as a colour to contrast with the floor, and a reduced tone-in-tone décor featuring the flower motif in all four colours.

There is also a cut décor in porcelain stoneware. It demonstrates a brickwork-like look typical of natural stone that’s ideal for understated and harmonious design projects.

ROCKY.ART is a premium quality design concept that combines the themes of nature and art in a very understated manner. The authentic stone design and expressive décor offers potential to create a look that’s both individual and timeless for walls and floors throughout the house – from living areas to bathrooms. Furthermore ROCKY.ART is an impressive choice for public buildings such as hotels or shops, because the range meets exacting standards in terms of both aesthetics and function.
