In less than two weeks, Ceramics of Italy will be joining us for Coverings 2016 in Chicago. Take a look at what they’ve got cooking up this year:
In the Italian Pavilion, a dynamic new stand designed by e+i studio, named Strada Dinamica, will take center stage (in booth 1531). Evoking the configuration and movement of a lively Italian streetscape, this space features benches, standing communal tables and two large kiosks housing a café, coffee bar, and information desk. Visitors can stop by to pick up a map of the Italian Pavilion, grab the latest copy of CER magazine, and sip espresso while networking with other attendees.
Within the pavilion, 122 brands will showcase the latest designs and technical innovations – from ceramic-porcelain hybrids and enormous porcelain slabs to erasable chalkboard tiles and antibacterial grouts. Architects, designers and other tile specifiers will be treated to guided tours of the Italian Pavilion by signing up for the Coverings VIP Tour hosted by Ceramics of Italy at bit.ly/coveringsvip. (They will also be entered into a drawing to win a trip to Bologna, Italy!)
You can also stop by The Ceramics of Italy International Press Conference which takes place on Tuesday, April 19 from 4:00-5:00pm in room S401BC.
Outside of the Italian Pavilion, Ceramics of Italy is a proud sponsor of the Installation Design Showcase. This year, award-winning interior designer Alena Capra, along with NTCA Five Star contractors from Artcraft Tile and Marble, will work to create an eye-catching cross-section of a luxury boutique with Ceramics of Italy tiles. You can check out the final reveal on Wednesday, April 20 from 3:30 – 5:30pm in booth 6245.
Hope to see you there!
