Thanks to continuous research from Mirage, today is it possible to obtain porcelain stoneware slabs able to offer a faithful reproduction of the most precious stone, such as marble, with its veining effects, tone-on-tone nuances of color and naturally shimmering effects.


Marble is the most elegant solution to embellish spaces, but this stone, as found in nature, is very delicate. This is why architects and designers often prefer to obtain marble-effect floors using porcelain stoneware, a compact, hard-wearing material with next to no porosity.

An extraordinary amount of research has gone into making a technically perfect collection inspired by marble, from highlighting the veins of the material and amalgamating delicate color nuances to lighting up shades and working on fine details. 



Today Mirage offers 17 different marble options, with fascinating characteristics such as the bookmatching effect. In porcelain stoneware, bookmatching is defined as the practice of matching two (or more) stone or marble surfaces, so that two adjoining surfaces mirror each other, giving the impression of an opened book.
