Crossville Inc. introduces the Astral Plane porcelain tile collection. This unique, stone-look product offers unprecedented visual depth achieved through multidimensional graphics applied during the manufacturing process. This domestically produced line, inspired by elements of the natural worlds above and below, is created to offer designers a versatile collection suited for a wide-range of commercial and residential applications.
“Astral Plane’s multidimensional graphics create a deeply layered look that makes the neutral color palette burst with visual texture,” explains Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville VP of marketing.
Waldrep also notes that Astral Plane supports biophilic design.
“The nuanced appearance echoes the look of stone within natural landscapes. This makes it an ideal foundational element for designers who’re focused on integrating the relationship between humankind and nature into interior design.”
The collection’s four hues are designed to answer current color trends and provide lasting appeal for installations in the long-term. The quartet of colors includes Altair, an ecru hue with cream highlights; Magellan, a strong, nuanced gray; Pavo, a deep, lush brown; and Draco, a charcoal hue dark like the night sky.
Astral Plane comes in three rectified field tile sizes—24 in. by 24 in., 12 in. by 24 in., and 6 in. by 24 in.—that are ideal for mixing and matching in a variety of patterns. Two mosaic options, a 2 in. by 2 in. and a random mosaic, invite creativity and versatility to complete any design. The covebase and bullnose trim allow for fully finished looks.
As with all products produced at Crossville’s Tennessee manufacturing facilities, Astral Plane is responsibly made in the USA, contains a minimum of 4% pre-consumer recycled content, and is Green Squared certified. Astral Plane is recommended for a wide range of interior installations, as well as exterior vertical applications, in commercial and residential settings.
