Ceramica Elias offers a variety of products manufactured through both handmade practices and contemporary innovation. The various grades of roughness and flamed surface differ in each tile, enabling Elias to create beautiful, warm atmospheres for both interiors and exteriors. The Proven?a Series appears as an aged, worn product with a very rustic appearance. Available in three colors to evoke the look of traditional terracotta fired in moruno kilns, where products were partly burnt, under-fired and well-fired, depending on kiln conditions.
One of Keraben’s newest introductions is the Urban Collection, a compact and resilient porcelain material that’s highly technical with strong aesthetic value. The technical properties make it highly resistant to scratches, heavy wear and tear and stress. With 80% recycled material recovered during the production process for water, clay, combustible energy and raw materials, Urban also offers unique applications for sustainable architecture, ventilated facades and elevated technical floors. These unglazed, impervious porcelain paver tiles guarantee high-performance and safety features as well as versatility with six colors, six formats and two finishes.
Natucer earned the Alfa De Plato Award for its new architectural collection LifeArq, innovative wall solutions for architecture and urban environments. A study of light and space resulted in four classes of ceramic, each with a specific characteristic and function designed to satisfy the needs of the construction and design markets for an active and dynamic society. They include:
- Bamboo, narrow porcelain columns in a variety of colors that when grouped together create a sunshade or can be used for architectural solutions. Colors include Frost, Dark, Crimson, Yolk and Gem. Format is 3.1” diameter x 11.5” and 3.1” diameter x 2.8”.
- Ivy – In a 2.2” x 7.1” format, these special pieces can be stacked using an internal steel support structure to create a partially shaded wall or even an outdoor enclosure.
- Scale – Offers a ceramic siding alternative with gently overlapping edges in format 13.8” x 3.9” in colors Frost, Lead, Grizzly and Dark.
- Channel – Offers another exterior façade application but with more angular approach. Formats include 2.5” x 14.2”, 3.5” x 14.2” and 4.5” x 14.2”.
