York, NY, March 13, 2013--The Ceramics of Italy pavilion "Piazza
Ceramica" will once again return to Coverings 2013 at the
Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia from April
29 to May 2.
by e+i studio, who
was selected for the project through a competition organized by Confindustria
Ceramica (the Italian
Association of Ceramics) in collaboration with Architizer, the pavilion is inspired by the
classical Italian piazza and features tile-clad steps that lift at the corners
to reveal the ever-popular café, coffee bar, and information booth.
pavilion features ceramic tiles from Atlas Concorde, Caesar Ceramiche,
Ceramiche Lea, Emil Ceramica, Fioranese, Floor Gres, and Marazzi and will have an updated design
that will add digital info and interaction points.
3,000-square-feet, the Piazza Ceramica will serve as Ceramics of Italy's
central stand and industry event space—it includes an authentic Italian
trattoria catered by Spuntino, and there's never a shortage of cappuccino—surrounded by
nearly 50 exhibits from Ceramics of Italy member manufacturers showcasing their
stylish and sustainable new tile collections.
