Nineteen Ceramics of Italy manufacturers will showcase their newest collections at ICFF 2017 May 21-24 at New York City’s Javits Center. Taking place during NYCxDESIGN, Ceramics of Italy members will display ceramic tile and sanitaryware products within the broader design context. The Ceramics of Italy multi-brand pavilion (booths 2219 and 2319) will be organized by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Agency, which will also host an information point for those looking for more information on the Italian ceramics industry.
“Due to continued advancements in tile manufacturing technology, this year’s ceramic tile introductions are bolder and bigger than ever before,” said Vittorio Borelli, president of Confindustria Ceramica. “At ICFF, guests in the Ceramics of Italy booth will have the opportunity to see examples of prominent design trends from large format porcelains to three-dimensional ceramic wall coverings as well as a selection of new sanitaryware products.”
The pavilion will provide a diverse sampling of Italian ceramics newly available in the North American market, including products made in collaboration with well-known designers, architectural mosaics, tiles in naturalistic motifs such as wood and marble, and textile-inspired lines. Participating companies include: Altaeco, Atlas Concorde, Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola, Emilceramica, Fap, Fincibec, Florim, Gambini Group, Gruppo Beta, GS Luxury Group, Kale Italia, Marca Corona, Mirage, Mosaico+, Ornamenta, Refin, Settecento, Simas, and Vallelunga. Throughout the space, representatives from Ceramics of Italy and the exhibiting brands will be available to answer questions and comment on design trends, installation techniques, technological advancements, and sustainability.
