Marble chip tiles are made with natural components, such as marble powder and grains, white concrete, natural oxide. MIPA products are entirely made in Italy.

The marble chip tiles’ production process considerably reduces porosity and absorption while increasing mechanical and physical performance. The result is a marble chip tile that is only 11 mm thick, something unimaginable a few years ago.

High quality and performance have allowed MIPA to meet the requirements of an ever-evolving market and attract eminent personalities of the design and architectural sectors.

The first step of the production process consists in selecting the best elements to obtain the best performance and aesthetics. An essential operation to get the most out of the material in terms of technical performance and aesthetic value.
The mixture’s formula depends on the binder – high-performing white concrete – the water/concrete ratio, and characteristics of the marble used. MIPA’s mixture is first blended with special mixers used in the pharmaceutical industry. Then it’s poured into moulds, vibrated at an adequate frequency, and compacted at high pressure. After removing excess water and air by means of state-of-the-art technologies, the mixture is cured in temperature- and humidity-controlled chambers.

Designers Stefano Maffei, Venanzio Arquilla and Barbara Parini (M+A+P DESIGNstudio) and Laura Renna have given marble chip tiles a unique, innovative and contemporary twist. Their projects help explore marble chip tiles’ potential through formal and creative characterisation and state-of-the-art technology (e.g., pixelate technology and surface decoration). The result is a modern yet classic product.
