Tile of Spain consultant Ryan Fasan showcases tile trends in a presentation entitled “Rethink: Skin vs. System”. Originally presented at Coverings 2016 in Chicago, the talk examines ceramics’ position and use in design.
The view of ceramic tile in the modern world has changed greatly over the last decade. What was once just used as the skin of a building, has quickly evolved into a high-tech product centric solution for architects and designers. With new technical formats and installation methods, hypo-allergenic and anti-microbal surfaces, weather resistant materials and a high-thermal mass, Tile of Spain explores ceramic tile as it quickly becomes the go-to building material of choice.
