Catalano, an Italian family run company based near Rome, was founded in 1967 in Civita Castellana by a team of expert ceramic technicians. Catalano is a market leader in ceramics, selling its ranges in over 100 countries. The company produces ceramic collections, in a wide variety of styles in its technically advanced, 170,000 square metre factory, where its top-of-the-range machines can, at full capacity, produce 1,500 pieces every day.
Catalano is renowned for producing the finest contemporary designs, made to the highest standards and the products are hand finished by skilled craftsmen. With fifty years’ experience, quality is of the utmost importance, and is built into every stage of the manufacturing process. Catalano also prides itself on its “Think Green” policy which ensures all processes maximise both energy and resources saving.
Green, Green Up and Green Lux, collections by Catalano that are inspired by nature and feature soft and deceptively simple shapes. The Green collection features sinuous inner curves and rounded corners that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they also help the free flow of water making the basins easy to maintain and keep clean. The super slim edged construction also maximises the water capacity of each basin, all of which reflect Catalano’s manufacturing expertise and innovative design ethos.
There are seven Green basins. Three of them are suitable for wall-hung, semi inset, sit-on or pedestal mounted installation. The other four are sit-on vanity style basins. The 100, 80 and 60 washbasins can also be installed on wall hung drawer units, while sit-on washbasins can be installed on countertops from the Elements furniture range, specifically designed for Catalano products.
Green Lux has eight contemporary washbasins, with natural shapes and thin edges. Basins are available with a tap ledge or without a tap ledge for installation with a tall or wall mounted basin mixer. The Green Lux basins are available in gloss and satin finishes.
Green Up comprises three washbasins, suitable for wall-hung or drawer unit installation. Green Up drawer units have two drawers, the top one being deeper for generous storage space for bathroom essentials. Every Green Up basin has generous lateral ledges allowing ample space for bathroom accessories.
With the brand new Colori collection, Catalano introduces coloured ceramics to the bathroom. Coloured basins, WCs and WC lids can be mixed and matched in different colour combinations for personalised styling and a unique look. The ceramics are available in 6 easy to clean finishes: satin and gloss white, satin grey, satin blue, satin green and gloss black. The unique colours have been developed in house and are exclusive to Catalano.
Elements launched 4 new furniture collections designed for Catalano in May 2017: Green Up, Premium, Star and Velis.
Introduce alternative neutral colours for furniture such as muted greys and taupes and light woodgrains.
As part of the process, Catalano uses a patented coating called Cataglaze on all its ceramics to ensure they are of the highest standard. Cataglaze, is a revolutionary treatment that improves surface hygiene, assists water flow and ensures lasting, unalterable brightness for the life of the ceramic piece. An immediately noticeable difference, the innovative Cataglaze produces a perfectly smooth surface, eliminating the micro-depressions of the ceramic, and making it impenetrable and bacteria-proof.
Key ceramic collections feature WCs with Catalano’s innovation in sanitaryware, Newflush™ WC technology.
This revolutionary rimless flushing system, Newflush™ is designed to function without the traditional rim. This new addition to the world of WCs features a vortex-flushing system which uses all the available water to its full potential, guaranteeing maximum performance and superior levels of hygiene and noise reduction. The absence of a rim and the interior shape of this new WC design also allows easy and more effective cleaning.
