Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2017
Walker Zanger, the world’s most comprehensive stone and tile company, merges practical design with durability in its new glazed porcelain collection: Architek. Its on-trend color palette of blues and greys brings new light to utilitarian floor and wall coverings, allowing architects and designers to achieve a contemporary, luxurious aesthetic at an affordable price point.
“Porcelain has certainly been on the rise as a popular material due to its durability and low-maintenance, which is extremely useful when you’re talking about high-traffic areas like university student lounges, hotel showers or food service areas,” said Jared Becker, Vice President of Design and Marketing. “We found that it was difficult for architects to find a wider range of contemporary colors for their larger commercial projects, so we created Architek as a more affordable solution, backed by the Walker Zanger brand.”
Architek’s color palette includes a blend of 12 blues and greys, such as Azul Cristal, Bahama Blue, Charcoal Grey, as well as black and white. The 4-by-12-inch tiles are available in both gloss and matte, so designers and architects can use either one solid color or mix and match the neutral shades to create a uniquely patterned gradient.
Made to withstand heavy use, the European-crafted tile is suitable for both walls and flooring in commercial and residential spaces such as laundry rooms, bathrooms, steam showers and pools.
