Luminos is an Unglazed Porcelain tile from master ceramicists, INAX of Japan.
Luminos is classified as a Nano-hydrophilic ceramic. Nano-hydrophile is INAX’s criteria that indicates the level of stain resistance. When installed vertically, these ceramics have additional properties that further help to resist mud, dirt, dust, gas emissions, soot, and smoke.
INAX has a long, rich history based in Japanese ceramic craftsmanship and expertise. Founded after producing the terracotta with Frank Lloyd Wright for the famous Imperial Hotel, Tokyo in 1924, INAX is recognized for its innovative range of interior and exterior architectural ceramics that embody superb manufacturing and leading designs by traditional artisans.
The quality of the production of INAX ceramics is incredibly high. Their manufacturing processes enable a level of precision and consistency, while also delivering the beautiful natural qualities for which Japanese ceramics are renowned. This is a result of the INAX factories’ experience working with the variables of temperature and timing that affect the chemical reactions that ultimately determine the result. Their ceramics are baked for much longer than traditional tiles, creating a uniquely hard-wearing and durable product.
