Coverings 2018 Roundup
Top leaders in the stone and tile industries came together to exhibit their newest innovations at the international stone and tile exhibition, which was held this year in Atlanta, GA. The event took place from May 8 to 11, 2018. Below are a few examples of the products that were featured at the show.
Arduen, from Argenta, is inspired by the beauty of vegetation in the Belgian region of Ardennes. Units from the Arduen collection are available in colored paste porcelain(75 x 150, 37 ½ x 150 and 75 x 75 cm) with different finishes in60 x 60 and 30 x 60 cm, and the 20-mm-thick nonslip paving version for outdoor use.
The delicate and homogeneous colors of Class Wood, the worn appearance of Country Wood, and the infinite expressive possibilities of Geowood are the multiple identities of Casalgrande Padana’s wood-effect porcelain stoneware. These three collections exhibit extraordinary flexural strength and resistance against impacts, abrasion, scratches, weather agents, fire, stains and chemicals, and are available in 22.5 x 189, 40 x 120, 20 x 120 and 25 x 151.
The four wooden essences (Ontano, Teak, Toulipier and Leccio) selected by Century for the new Royal Wood collection express unique combinations of colors, veining and grain, inspired by precious woods and typically used in contexts that are not architectural. The sizes, starting from the 30- x 80-cm slabs, allow designers to create laying patterns typical of natural wood floors.
Fusion Pro Single Component Grout from Custom Building Products combines ease of use with stain resistance and color consistency in one unique product. Its enhanced formula is now easier to spread and clean – plus it can be used in wet areas. And only Fusion Pro is stain proof and color perfect-guaranteed.
Equipe Ceramicas presents Artisan. Artisan is a wall tile inspired on Arabic zellige material, available in 5- x 5- and 2 ½- x 8-inch sizes, and is available in 10 colors. Artisan generates dynamism by their shade variations in the monochrome murals.
Charisma, by Monocibec, is a versatile product that can enhance the character of any project in residential, commercial and public area contexts. The range has two finishes, natural and lapped, and is available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 60 x 60 to 120 x 60 cm.
