Ceramiche Piemme will be in Manchester from the 6th to the 9th of November as part of DESIGN POPUP MANCHESTER. The intimate and personal feel of this trade show provides the perfect settings to appreciate the quality and modernity of Ceramiche Piemme tile collections. Architects, designers, specifiers, contractors and developers attending the event from the major UK and Irish practices will have the opportunity to see and feel first-hand three of Piemme’s range: Glitch designed by Benoy, Materia and Venetian Marble.
"The collaboration with Benoy and the new collections that we will present in Manchester enhance Ceramiche Piemme's new approach to key markets such as the UK, both in the retail and in large projects sectors" explains Davide Colli COO Ceramiche Piemme "We have worked on new proposals in this direction: new technical materials, new tiles suitable for every type of destination, new complete services for architects, designers and contractors".
Glitch designed by Benoy is the new collection of porcelain stoneware tiles designed by the London firm. The word "glitch" refers to the flickering produced on a computer screen by an unpredicted error. A theme which is very much in line with the design trend that favours imperfection as a sign of uniqueness. Hence the inspiration of Benoy designers, expressed in a range of 8 tones in various sizes. Glitch focuses on the distinctive irregularities of concrete surfaces, such as cracks, films, scratches and wear, and reinterprets them for ceramic tiles. The result is a contemporary collection ideal for both homes and commercial locations (Benoy's real expertise).
Materia is a collection conveying an unusual “matter” effect with surfaces that merge metal, Corten steel, stone and ceramic in a refined, contemporary look. Starting out from very different metals, oxidised or glossy, from the natural feel of stone and the versatility of ceramic, Ceramiche Piemme’s R&D team have created “Materia”, an original new element available in six tones.
Venetian Marble is a new ceramic collection that combines the technical performance of the latest generation of porcelain stoneware with the aesthetics of the Venetian terrazzo flooring. It is part of Ceramiche Piemme Contract, a versatile line of products by Ceramiche Piemme designed to support the designer in choosing the finishes for public and private spaces of contemporary everyday life.
