These distinctive features are found in the majority of Optimum Surfaces’ vast range of products, which offer stylistic flexibility and versatility of application to meet the needs of any design.

Guaranteeing advanced performance and looks inspired by prestigious natural materials, such as marble and stone, 20 mm porcelain stoneware is the ideal option for terraces and outdoor spaces. It also is excellent for creating garden kitchens and ceramic tables for outdoor use, where it combines uncompromising functionality and design.
