Ryan Fasan, Tile of Spain consultant, recently presented on trends and innovations in ceramics at Coverings 2015. This presentation, Savvy Timelessness: 2015 Trends & Innovations in Ceramics, touches upon how we can combine macro and micro trend analysis, technological capability analysis, and the harmony principle to result in savvy timeliness with lifelong value to the consumer.
The presentation, which is embedded below, showcases the multiple tile trends that never go out of style.
In any fashion industry, technology from past & present dictate the limits of design and thus prevailing trends. Most of us never know what we want until we see it – the challenging task of the ceramist is to tweak current production capabilities to provide consumers with something that fits the ineffable sweet spot of perfection within the currently trending meta of design. That sweet spot is different for ceramics than any other material due to its longevity; our products must take the long view on trends and strive for savvy timelessness.
Ceramics are uniquely suited today to cater to the macro trends due to the balanced marriage of modern innovations with centuries of artisanal history and experience. These trends include:
- retro patterns
- electric colors
- impeccable finishes
- geometric gems
- graphic patterns
- strong stones
- well loved metals
When using the proper materials and installation techniques, these tile trends also have the added benefit of durability for a lifetime of satisfaction.
