Tile of Spain manufacturers returned to Italy for CERSAIE. The annual five day event invited industry professionals to explore international manufacturers at The Europa Auditorium in Bologna.
As one of the major world powers in ceramic tile production and export, Spain is a regular participant in the show. Over 90 Spanish ceramic manufacturers showcased their collections as a preview of what is to come for the 2019 year.
A Return to Geometry; Aparici, Tango
A trend is to look beyond structure and function when it comes to floors and walls and think decorative.
In 2019, ceramic tiles with geometric designs will play a role in visual design of virtually every room. Inspired by the Art Deco movement of the 20s and 30s, these geometric shapes create attractive spaces and environments while being sensitive to the nostalgia of the past eras.
Up-ing the Color; Gayafores, Kaleido
Doses of color that shy away from the traditional monochromatic hues convert floors and walls into the protagonist of the room.
These tonalities are capable of transforming design by giving the allusion of a larger space while also playing on the reflections of natural light. For 2019 there are no favorite colors, but a commitment to a combination of colors in the pursuit for daring designs and stylistic experimentation.
Playing with textures; Ceramica Gomez, Zante
So long are the days of matte finishes. In 2019, we will see different textures and reliefs introduced in order to enhance the aesthetics of floors and walls. Weathered, high-gloss, volumetric, rugged and embossed finishes break the functionality of the material and turn ceramic tile into works of art.
A Classic Bet; Baldocer, Hannover
Collections that are based on elements from the past will still remain popular in 2019. Marble inspired ceramics that are seen year after year lend a sense of purity and infinitude. This year though, manufacturers have also lost their fear of dark tones and are releasing collections in black, green and gray hues for a dramatic feel.
The Terrazzo inspired ceramics will also remain strong in 2019, but reinvents itself by experimenting with different colors, shapes and sizes to suit every project.
