The name Porphyry comes from the ancient Greek meaning purple, a colour frequently found in this type of rocks, along with red, brown and grey. It is this rock that has inspired the Porfirica collection.
Porphyry is a magmatic material formed by the cooling of lava flows. It has an extremely variegated, complex composition, on which is created a “porphyritic” (porfirica in Italian) structure that also comprises minerals and crystalline elements. This particular characteristic is featured in 2 patterns: a fine-grain version inspired by the original stone and a coarser-grain agglomerate.
The stone-effect porcelain stoneware
by Coem restores prestige and value to this stone, thanks to three surface finishes: unpolished, half-polished and outdoor, with 5 intense colours and two textures that allow for creative compositions on floors and walls.
