The Unique Bleu by Provenza collection brings stylistic elegance and versatility into interior design, offering freedom of expression and the opportunity to experiment. Giancarlo Macchioni, Emilgroup Marketing and R&D Director, told us about this collection's strong points.
What's the inspiration for Unique Bleu by Provenza?
Unique Bleu is inspired by Belgian pierre bleue, a very distinctive stone typical of that country: the vein patterns, subtle shade variations and graduated colours in its surfaces recount millennia of history, dating back to more than 300 million years ago, when what is now Belgium lay beneath a tropical sea.
What makes this series original?
With the Unique Bleu project, we set out to create a collection that would embrace and express the beauty of all the different types of workmanship carried out on pierre bleue. These finishes can be combined together to form a single versatile, original architectural project in which interiors can be "clothed" with surfaces that give them different flavours and moods. The collection comes in two colour shades, Gris and Anthracite, and various finishes. Noble, elegant and minimal, available in the Natural and Velouté Semi-polished versions, the latter offering an additional variant with uneven edges, the Velouté Brecciato version. The Roulée finish for a three-dimensional look with a strong visual impact, with a grooved and faceted effect particularly ideal for wall tiles. Renversée interprets the look of the underside of the stone, with the marks left by the cutting process, which become decorative marks. Ancienne is the salvaged version, also ideal for modular installation.
