Fine materials and environmentally friendly

At the CERSAIE, International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings, CasalgrandePadana and Pininfarina presented EARTH, the first tile system designed by Pininfarina. A partnership of two outstanding examples of Italy’s excellence: CasalgrandePadana, leading manufacturer of state of the art ceramic materials and Pininfarina, the world-renowned design house. Two companies that share values, such as the pursuit of quality and excellence, design and material innovation, and respect for the environment.



Colors, formats and finishes to create unique environments

The texture of the porcelain stoneware slabs is the result of the blend of three different materials (glass, leather, and fabric), which creates a strong multisensory effect. The result is warm and cosy to the eye, whereas, at a short distance, you can appreciate its innovative texture and tactile three-dimensionality. The vast colour palette and large formats allow for a creative use of these tiles in any environment. The décors are inspired by the glorious Pininfarina car design tradition. They feature clean-cut and extremely elegant lines while the finishes and special materials – car body paint, fine wood, natural leather treated to be used as a coating material – make them even more unique.


The Pininfarina tile system can come with the Pininfarina logo on both the tiles and the décors, according to the specific requirements of the project, architect, or the customer’s taste. Its great versatility makes the EARTH collection by Pininfarina perfect for any use, ranging from private villas to luxury hotels. EARTH provides interior designers and architects with the ideal tool for creating simple and elegant or dynamic and highly sensory environments. Earth by Pininfarina is available in the following two versions: Bios Antibacterial HYDROTECT®, with certified antibacterial properties, and Bios Self-Cleaning®, with high self-cleaning and pollution abatement performance. As with all CasalgrandePadana products, this collection stands out for its eco-compatibility.



A design full of suggestions from the automotive world

EARTH by Pininfarina is a unique collection with a distinctive character born out of the combination of CasalgrandePadana’s know-how and Pininfarina design. The originality of this project lies in the great versatility of the system, which combines tiles, whose refined and essential design conveys luxury and charm, with décors inspired by the automotive world.

A trasversal experience

“Working with CasalgrandePadana has allowed us to make full use of all our competencies, from industrial design to architecture, placing a high value on the know-how and materials acquired in the automotive industry. Earth by Pininfarina is a collection with a unique style, which combines craftsmanship with the most advanced manufacturing techniques to provide versatile and sophisticated solutions for any environment.”

“At CasalgrandePadana, we have always manufactured state of the art ceramic materials with a perfect balance between natural resource protection, environment protection, advanced technology, economic growth, and social responsibility.
