    Aisthesis by Panaria an Italian Through-Body Porcelain TileAisthesis-Bianco

    Pronounced (i-sis-seas) Aisthesis is an 18" x 18", through-body, rectified tile that is suitable for floors and walls, but we think it will prove to be exceptionally popular as a counter tile. The large format and ultra smooth finish is available in four outstanding colors, including Bianco, Cacao, Lavica and Sabbia, that coordinate perfectly with other materials and colors. Recycled content exceeds 40%.
