"Verderame is a copper tile based on the idea of mutation. When it is set on the floor it looks just like a normal copper tile, but in a couple of months the oxydation process starts to change the colour of the tile. Some parts of the tile are protected with a transparent film. The oxydation will make appear an hidden texture, showing the typical things that we can find on a floor: a pen, a shoelace, a running bug."
