Pietra Firma is British company which cherishes skills passed down from father to son from generation to generation. These accumulated skills and traditional techniques, generally lost in the modern world, allow Pietra Firma to create highly sought after handcrafted works of art, using rare and delicate materials and precious stones.

LuxTouch is an exploration of classical elegance and stylish design. Each LuxTouch tile is a stand-alone masterpiece of intricate detail and craftsmanship.

The dazzling LuxTouch creation is a black marble tile inlaid with 95 brilliant cut diamonds, mother of pearl and abalone. The centre of the tile consists of a pitch-black agate circle inlaid with 19 diamonds and a mother of pearl flower petal pattern radiates outwards from the centre. Each of the petals is a single piece of mother of pearl inlaid with a large precious cut diamond and the black agate pieces between the petals are also inlaid with diamonds. The tile's four corners are inlaid with mother of pearl and abalone shell, achieving a visually stunning counter balance with the radiating flower petals.

When inlaid, the diamonds sit slightly raised above the tile, which results in the maximum tactile and visual effect. Walking barefoot on a LuxTouch floor can only be described as a truly sensual experience. The LuxTouch tile is ideal as a wall or a bathroom floor tile and the 95 diamonds can be substituted with a variety of precious stones. Each square metre of marble tile is inlaid with over 1000 diamonds, 2400 pieces of mother of pearl, 400 pieces of abalone shell and 500 pieces of black onyx. LuxTouch is an exclusive range with a maximum of five projects.

The design is fantastic and the math is simple: 1 square meter = 1 million dollars. So, what are you waiting for?
