  Ceramics of Italy turns up the heat in Orlando  

This year Coverings will return to Orlando, Florida from April 17-20, 2012. The Ceramics of Italy pavilion will feature an exciting new booth (#4623) designed by e+i studio, a dynamic architecture and design firm based in NYC. The 3,000 square foot pavilion will be transformed into a colorful topography-inspired piazza with a large open gathering space and tile-clad steps reminiscent of a piazza church. From the floors and walls to the steps and countertops, nearly every surface in the pavilion will be wrapped in Italian tile - from ceramic mosaics to large and thin-format porcelains.

Ceramic Tiles of Italy commitment to sustainability

To exemplify Ceramic Tiles of Italy commitment to sustainability, the industry sponsored two seminars at Dwell On Design 2011 held in Los Angeles Convention Center, June 24-26.

Ceramic Tiles of Italy Design Competition winner Hagy Belzberg, of Belzberg Architects, presented: "Sustainable Materials. Case Study: Kona House." While the Kona Residence in Kona, Hawaii features many 'green' qualities including a sophisticated water catchment system, photovoltaic panels, and teak siding, the focus of this case study is the choice of Italian porcelain tile used throughout the home. Italian tile was chosen because of its high performance in harsh environments and its ability to withstand the extreme sun, chemicals from the local volcano and sea salt. Click here

Ron Jones, sustainability expert and Editorial Director of GreenBuilder, presents "Sustainable Ceramics. Case Study: ReVision House." The presentation on this energy-saving retrofit home, designed by Patricia Gaylor, focuses on ceramic tile used throughout the Orlando (FL) home because of its durability, lifespan, non-toxic emissions and resistance to extreme weather conditions.
