Quartz cladding from the Materia collection was used by the design studio Delafosse + Architecture Intérieure for the branch of Crédit Agricole Bank in Paris, for its distinctive characteristics of strength and performance, accompanied by an exceptional appearance.
The colors chosen were Superwhite 13 Grain 2.0 and Luna Grain 2.0.
Designed to provide a combination of durability and safety, even in retail and public venues subject to high pedestrian traffic, the Materia collection was used for the cladding of quartz floors and the steps of the staircase inside the bank. With the Grain finish, this solution also ensures non-slip performance.
