Major recognition for Ceramiche Piemme from New York City, where the Shades tile collection by Gordon Guillaumier won “Best Hard Flooring Product” at the awards evening of NYCxDESIGN, the New York design week. NYCxDESIGN Awards indeed celebrates the best talent and products in the architecture, interiors, furnishings, lighting and technology categories.
“We are very proud of this international award, recognition of our research and stimulating partnership with Gordon Guillaumier,” said Davide Colli, Chief Operating Officer of Ceramiche Piemme. “Recently, during a meeting in London for the launch of our Piemme 40 branch, design historian Alice Rawsthorn highlighted the importance of a production technology which lets users experience the ‘artisanal’ sensation of uniqueness. The Shades collection has met with great praise for its ability to interpret the sensual, tactile and visual dimension of an artistic intervention on the surface. This was also the aspect grasped by the jury of the New York awards, vindicating our choices and the major investments the company is making in its ability to be a trendsetter and create culture in the sector.”
Davide Colli went on to give a special thank you to the company’s US distributor, Stone Source, which has enthusiastically promoted the Shades collection in New York, as well as its other sales territories in the US.
