Day one of Cersaie 2010 – the largest International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings -- revealed leading trends and cutting-edge products from more than 1,000 exhibitors across 34 countries.
Able to naturally complement the stone color of an historic building in Salt Lake City, UT, Valders Buff limestone from Valders Stone & Marble, Inc. in Valders, WI, was also fabricated to match different finishes throughout the exterior of a restoration project that would become O.C. Tanner Flagship Jewelry Store. Additionally, the company's Valders Dove White dolomtic limestone was used for the interior redesign.
When it came time to design the interior of the Stone Canyon Elementary School in Owasso, OK, the design team wanted to reflect the unique qualities of the city while also creating a fun learning environment for students. As a result, a natural setting was created indoors with porcelain floor tiles that were cut with a waterjet to resemble insects and other outdoor life.
Celebrating its 27th edition, Cersaie once again
staked its place as one of the world’s largest exhibitions of ceramic tiles and
bathroom furnishings by drawing an international crowd of over 83,000 people.
For this issue, we are excited to share with you four features that focus on using compact and ultrathin slabs in both residential and commercial projects. As these products continue to gain popularity, we wanted to share different ideas of applications, including an upscale dining environment in the interior of a Saks Fifth Avenue.
