For routine maintenance of the surfaces, always use neutral cleansers (for example, FILACLEANER or neutral soap). Do not in any case use harsh products that could irreparably damage the surface of the stone (such as acids or descaling products).
We strongly recommend that you do not place hot objects such as kettles or pans directly onto natural stone as it may cause
discolouration or staining.
If your stone is exposed to “hard water” where there is a high mineral content, you will need to take a little extra care as the cleaning properties of the FILACLEANER or neutral detergent will be weakened. You will therefore need to use these products a little more frequently so that soap scum, lime scale and the like do not have the chance to build up and congeal.

Designed by Piero Lissoni, Raw represents the ruggedness of hewn wood, translated in stone to create a nuanced play of light and shadow. The process which creates Raw tiles is designed to preserve the natural aesthetic qualities of the stone. As a result of this, the tiles may not be perfectly identical, however this non-uniformity is intrinsic both to the texture and the natural stone itself. "I worked with Gabriele Salvatori on this surface treatment for marble, to increase and extend the rough cut of pieces of stone. What we got was a series of stones cut like pieces of wood, transforming the precise, mechanical cut into a rough cut, creating an 'engraved' eﬀect on the surface of the marble. We revolutionised the technological element, turning it into a hand- crafted process, and the result was an even surface, which might be (for example) laid tongue and groove, like parquet.” Piero Lissoni Available in Bianco Carrara, Crema d'Orcia Select, Pietra d'Avola and Silk Georgette®, Raw can be installed both vertically and horizontally.
Suitable for internal and external use including wet areas. Ligthing is a key component which significantly enhances the beauty of Raw. The key to great lighting is that it should "wash" down or across the surface, depending whether the lines run horizontally or vertically.
Raw tiles come in two configurations:
Packed in crates containing an equal mix of three different lengths which we call strips.
Packed in crates containing a uniform size of tile.
