Antibacterial slabs for Marazzi kitchen tops presented at Milan Design Week 2022
Marazzi presented, on the occasion of the 60th edition of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the new collection of large antibacterial slabs Puro Marazzi Antibacterial The Top, a special project dedicated to kitchen tops and tables that involves the application of exclusive antibacterial technology to large slabs in stoneware 162x324x1.2 cm.


Puro Marazzi Antibacterial technology

The Puro Marazzi Antibacterial technology, applied for the first time to large stoneware slabs, eliminates up to 99.9% bacteria and other harmful microorganisms from the surfaces thanks to a silver ion treatment, incorporated in the production process before the cooking at 1200 degrees. This process makes the antibacterial protection constantly active over time, preserving the aesthetic and technical qualities of the porcelain stoneware tops for a long time, ideal for creating kitchen tops, tables and sinks in residential and commercial spaces.

The Puro Marazzi Antibacterial The Top collection includes stoneware slabs in the 162x324 cm format with a thickness of 12 mm in six variants with a concrete, marble and stone effect: Concrete Look White, Marble Look Elegant Black, Golden White and Statuario, Stone Look Ceppo di Gré and the brand new Travertino Classico.

"Pure Marazzi Antibacterial technology, - said Mauro Vandini, CEO of Marazzi Group - applied for the first time to slabs for kitchen tops, represents a beautiful and useful innovation, which makes the use of porcelain stoneware even safer".

The potential of large slabs

Marazzi's installation at Eurocucina also aimed to reveal the role that the kitchen plays in contemporary homes: a space in which to live, not only for preparing food, but a central place in the house, in continuity with the living room, where sit, work and be together.

The project, curated by the Il Magma studio, featured two living-kitchens full of design solutions that highlighted the multiple possibilities of use of large porcelain stoneware slabs, used to create all the elements of the spaces.

In the first large kitchen the deep veins of The Top Bianco Arni stood out, used on the entire floor and in the kitchen top with induction and integrated sink. The table was instead made with a slab of The Top Quarzo Bluegrey, also used on the wall in the matt version.

The second island kitchen instead featured three geometric volumes, also in this case in two different effects, stone and marble: the warm shades of the Burgundy Green veins, with a glossy surface, interacted with those of the Classic Travertine, in the brand new antibacterial satin finish.

On the occasion of Milan Design Week 2022, the new slabs from the Puro Marazzi Antibacterial The Top collection were also present in the Marazzi spaces in Via Borgogna and in Palazzo Bovara in the Design Forever project curated by the Calvi Brambilla studio.
