Founded in 1961 and now positioned at the high end of the porcelain stoneware tile market, Ariostea stands out for its quality wall and floor coverings. Ariostea tiles are designed and manufactured using patented technologies developed directly in the company's factories. Materials are scrupulously selected using advanced extraction and processing techniques. Raw materials are transformed into compact, full-thickness fine porcelain stoneware slabs recognised internationally as top quality products. Ariostea's headquarters are in Castellarano in the province of Reggio Emilia. In 2018, its open-to-the-public Area-17 showroom was restyled as a true manifesto of the brand's identity. The emotion-inspired exhibition proposes the company's products in spatial and visual connection with the surrounding context, focusing on the brand's pillars - Hi-Tech and attention to detail. Ariostea has showrooms in Milan, Bolzano and Naples. Two permanent exhibition spaces in Paris and Berlin, bearing witness to the company's international profile achieved over the course of its history, are emblems of Made-in-Italy style and quality. The brand is present in sales outlets throughout Europe, as well as in China and Brazil.
Indoor and outdoor cladding: Ariostea full-body slabsAriostea focuses on wall and floor tile finishes for indoor and outdoor use. Porcelain stoneware tiles offer high performance, technological and aesthetic standards; they are ideal solutions for adding style to large and small surfaces in domestic and contract contexts. Starting in the earliest stages, outdoor flooring is designed with particular attention to the physical composition of the slabs so that they can easily withstand climatic effects and respond appropriately to high and low temperatures as well as many kinds of atmospheric phenomena. Similarly, horizontal wall and furnishing finishes ensure the highest standards of performance and design. Ariostea tiles reproduce a wide variety of patterns and textured effects. For example, the Hi-Tech lines offer a vast range of wood-effect porcelain stoneware tiles, perfect for furnishing classic and modern interiors; they represent perfectly the company mission, which has always focused on quality materials and cutting-edge technology. The ULTRA and PIETRE HI-TECH porcelain stoneware solutions are also worthy of note; they reproduce – respectively - marble and stone effects for any furnishing context.
Hi-Tech and environmental compatibility: the Ariostea philosophyAriostea's philosophy is based on technical and material quality. The production process is meticulously supervised, starting from the procurement of natural raw materials selected from all over the world in full compliance with the company's high standards. Stone is transformed into porcelain stoneware slabs using patented techniques and technologies, especially the pressure systems at temperatures of over 1300 degrees to make the material non-absorbent and highly resistant to the wear and tear of time, the best example of compact structural homogeneity. Ariostea's production is ethical and eco-compatible. Raw materials have low environmental impacts and use energy-efficient production processes that reduce the consumption of potable water and the production of environmental waste. The tiles are easy to discard at the end of their life cycles and require no special maintenance. Ariostea products bear the CE mark attesting to their compliance with European Parliament Regulation 305/2011.
