Pinocchi is an ink jet porcelain tile by Italian manufacturer, 14OraItaliana. Pinocchi features the surprisingly realistic look of raw plywood and OSB, or particle board. The series was designed to inspire an element of surprise; it looks as if it may be a rough, unfinished surface, yet, as a porcelain, it's unexpectedly smooth and cool to the touch. Pinocchi is suitable for many applications and can be used in spaces where the look of plywood an particle board would not typically be expected, such as bathrooms and poolside floors.
