    Ceramics of Italy Spring 2013 Tour

    "Ceramics of Italy’s booth by NY-based firm e+i studio."Ceramics of Italy’s booth by NY-based firm e+i studio.

    This spring, designers across North America will have three ways to see the newest trend-setting tiles from Italy. Starting at the Coverings show in Atlanta (April 29-May 2, 2013), A&D guests will be welcomed to the Italian Pavilion where nearly 80 tile brands will display their latest ceramic innovations. In the heart of the pavilion, Piazza Ceramica—Ceramics of Italy’s booth designed by NY-based firm e+i studio —will be wrapped in Italian tile with a large open gathering space, piazza-like steps, and a dedicated Italian restaurant/coffee bar.


    The exhibit will also include an interactive 20th Anniversary retrospective of inspiring, award-winning projects featuring Italian ceramics. In addition, Ceramics of Italy has created a unique A&D VIP Tour with guided product tours, lunch, an A&D Bag and the chance to win a free trip to Cersaie (the world’s largest exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings in Bologna, Italy).

    Ceramics of Italy

    Designers and architects heading to ICFF in New York (May 18-22, 2013) will find a wellspring of design inspiration in the multi-brand Italian pavilion (#1432). Sponsored by the Italian Trade Commission and Confindustria Ceramica, the booth will feature tile displays from eight of Italy’s leading producers as well as an expanded version of the 20th Anniversary Tile Competition exhibit.

    Right on the heels of ICFF, Ceramics of Italy will head north with a tour de force of tiles and trends for the Canadian design community. Sponsored by Confindustria Ceramica in collaboration with the Interior Designers of Canada (IDC), Ceramics of Italy will present Cersaie Trends + Tiles 2013, an accredited multi-city design seminar in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver (May 28-20, 2013).
