Porphyry cubes: A shape for all purposes

A floor made of square slabs calls for the orientation, strengthens the path, defines a destination and represents the contact point with the architectonic structure by marking the rhythm of movements and pointing out the differences. The Italporphyry Dolce Vita line with porphyry cubes square head is an invitation to a walk to fully enjoy the value of leisure time. These walking surfaces are natural and comfortable, solid and functional, safe and relaxing and permit to slow down the pace, to recognise the places and enjoy to the fullest the little, yet big, aspects of existence.
