Plate: Embracing urban elegance with Ceramiche Keope’s metal-inspired series

The urban landscape meets industrial charm in a captivating blend of metal- effect tiles in the brand’s latest offering, Plate.

Since 1995, Italian brand Ceramiche Keope has specialised in crafting porcelain stoneware floor and wall surfaces. Its ethos revolves around meticulous attention to detail, social responsibility, and a deep-rooted respect for the environment and its people. The company was founded in Casalgrande, Reggio Emilia, and has since expanded its global presence, reaching over 80 countries with an annual output exceeding 5 million square metres. 

Now, the ceramic firm has unveiled its newest urban-inspired collection, a range of porcelain metal-effect tiles that draw their inspiration from the dynamic energy of the city and the raw industrial spaces that define it. Called Plate, the collection features a captivating interplay of oxidation, chrome, and radiant surfaces, which work together to encapsulate the inherent beauty of metal in a mesmerising fusion of design elements.

Plate represents a bold departure from Ceramiche Keope’s conventional tile collections: each design epitomises a sense of modern luxury, characterised by a prominent oxidised effect highlighted with gleaming accents.

The stoneware tile collection features a unified graphic motif presented in eight refined and vibrant colours, each exuding a remarkable depth of saturation intended to clad both walls and floors in either home or commercial settings. Within the cooler and more neutral end of the colour spectrum, Zinc stands out with its lack of overt coloration allowing the texture’s opulence and the surface’s luminosity to shine through.

Meanwhile, Silver with its gleaming silvery tones evokes the sleek sophistication of metal—a timeless emblem of modernity. Tin offers a subtle charm, replicating the gentle grey hues of tin with warmer undertones, making it an ideal choice for residential environments. Lastly, Anthracite captures the essence of classic steel grey but elevates it with hints of brown and bluish nuances, creating an atmosphere of understated elegance perfect for minimalist industrial designs.

Transitioning from sleek and contemporary tones, the chromatic range evolves to embrace hues that reveal the vintage and decorative essence of metal. Brass, with its luminosity and amalgamation of golden highlights and earthy browns, injects an aura of opulent exclusivity into any interior space. Meanwhile, Copper expresses hues ranging from fiery orange to rich copper red, making it the perfect choice for those seeking unconventional design solutions.

The collection is complete with Oxyde, a colour imbued with a distinct and unmistakable character, boasting a unique green-blue hue that adds depth and intrigue, and finally the Titanium palette with its vibrant bluish tones, offering a strong decorative appeal ideal for defining modern commercial spaces with a bold statement.

Plate’s aesthetic identity reaches its highest expression with the three large Luxury decorative slabs: Gold, Platinum and Dark. Dedicated exclusively to wall coverings, the third fire decors feature striking colour overlays with contrasting textures that add movement to the surfaces. From the brassy blue with rust streaks of Gold to the cool grey-blue of Platinum and the purplish browns of Dark, the three variations offer a wide range of colours that can be easily matched with Plate’s colour palette.
