26th International Global Architecture and Interior Design Exhibition


Technology and large-size ceramic formats were the two major pillars that structured the annual gathering of Porcelanosa Group. Over a five-day period (from 21 to 25 january), the group’s eight firms opened their facilities in Vila-Real to more than 14,000 visitors and industry professionals as well as the specialised press to present their principal novelties in kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, cladding and construction materials.

Prominent among the proposals presented are: Nobu, the large-format Premium ceramic collection that recreates the appearance of natural wood yet has the resilience and timelessness of ceramic; the Dakota Sandstone Collection by Venis, which can be used as flooring or cladding in its three hues: White, Gray and Beige; the concept of “WaterForest: saving resources in the bathroom is possible” which Noken Porcelanosa Bathroom presented at its new showroom, enlarged by 2000m2, in order to encourage energy and water savings through a range of eco-friendly products; the new range of colours (Amaro, Grigio and Luce) in the “Materia” series by Krion, comprised of 20% recycled material and with the benefits inherent to this compact mineral: heat curving, zero porosity, flexibility, resistance to impact and easy maintenance, and Smart Kitchen, a new kitchen concept from Gamadecor for the user to interact with the equipment and learn about eating habits.

L’Antic Colonial paid homage to the manual work of the early industries with the Sadasi and Field collections. The former stands out for its hexagons and Mozarabic colours and structures that were created on the shores of the Mediterranean. Field combines different stone triangles with metal tesserae in the Black, Copper and White mosaics.

A play of light and luminous effects arrived with Butech, with its new pro-light tile profiles, which can be installed in both kitchen worktops and as ceramic cladding or in corners of walls.

Lastly, Urbatek presented the two new extra-thin Xlight porcelain options: Stam and Tempo, which reproduce the avant-garde currents of the 20th century. Stam is conceived as a watercolour of light and shadow in Beige and Grey hues. Tempo focuses on cement and an industrial aesthetic through its three colours: Black, White and Grey.
