DALLAS, TX -- Daltile is pleased to share the news that its new Calligo collection has been selected by a panel of industry experts as a Best Of KBIS Awards Finalist  in the “Wellness Trailblazer” category.  The ultimate winner in this category will be announced by the judges at the upcoming Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) 2024 in February.  The KBIS website recognizes the industry “trailblazers” as being behind the most cutting-edge and innovative products in the kitchen and bath industry.  Daltile will be prominently showcasing and officially launching Calligo at KBIS in Booth #N223.   Daltile is the nation’s largest manufacturer and marketer of tile, stone, and countertop products for both residential and commercial use.  

“Daltile’s Calligo is a wellness trailblazer, because this porcelain/ceramic tile is truly the perfect design material to create a space that fosters tranquility and the ability to unplug,” said Laura Grilli, director of product design for Daltile.  “Looking first at the well-known premise that our surroundings impact the way we feel, Calligo’s graceful travertine visuals infuse a space with a soothingly neutral color palette, the gentle movement of caressing designs, and the peacefully organic visual of natural stone — all attributes that foster a sense of cocooning to find balance, calm, and harmony.  To give further peace of mind in today’s germ-aware world, Calligo is infused with our proprietary technology, DEFEND powered by Microban®, which continuously eliminates 99% of bacteria on the tile surface 24/7.  In the bathroom or kitchen, Daltile’s Calligo is perfect for creating your space to relax and recharge.”

“When we started designing this collection, the idea was to create a line fostering a sanctuary and spa-like environment accessible to our customers in their home,” added Grilli.  “The look itself is inspired by Navona Travertine which has such a natural configuration for stone of soft colors and shades and warm hues that it creates a cozy, luxurious space.  Our new Calligo is a timeless offering —  simple visual interest as well as a unique stone, tactile experience with the added bonus of continuously eliminating 99% of the bacteria on the tile surface.”

Launching in Spring 2024, the three colors of Calligo will be available in glazed ceramic 12- x 24-inch fluted wall tile, 15- x 30-inch porcelain floor tile, glazed ceramic 1- x 6-inch mosaic, and ½- x 12-inch jolly.  It is appropriate for floor, wall, countertop and shower floor applications.  Calligo is proudly Made In The USA.
