At about 3/4-inch-thick, Extragres 2.0 monolithic porcelain paver tiles feature a perfectly square edge with a slider repelling surface. Forged in a fiery hot production process, the seemingly natural tiles are nearly impervious to cracking and external stresses. The collection is available in a wide array of colors and textures for residential and public outdoor flooring applications.

Milan-based designer Paola Lenti has embedded Japanese motifs across the faces of these lava stone slabs. The collection can be artfully arranged in different configurations of two squares made up of three irregular trapezoids. Even untreated, the oxidized surfacing is resistant to wear and tear.
