Ceramics of Italy to Unveil New HDR-Designed Booth at Coverings
New York, NY, April 5, 2023-At Coverings 2023, Ceramics of Italy will debut a new booth designed by leading architecture and interiors firm HDR, which will serve as an inspiring display of Italian design, biophilia, and hospitality, at the center of the Italian Pavilion. Surrounding the booth in the South Hall, over 60 Italian brands will showcase new ceramic tile and installation products demonstrating the latest advancements in technology, sustainability and design.
Coverings will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from April 18 to 21.
Serving as the literal and figurative heart of the Italian ceramics industry at the show, the Ceramics of Italy booth, coined “Giardino all’Italiana,” is designed as a reflection of the Italian lifestyle as well as the industry’s core values. Spanning two locations (booth #1220 and #1520), HDR conceived the booth as a modular framework that can be sustainably reused for future events while showcasing the breadth of available designs and applications of Italian ceramics in an inviting, biophilic environment.
Alongside a panel of top industry experts, Kristin Coleman, marketing representative for Ceramics of Italy, will participate in the annual "Global Tile Trends'' session, where they will discuss the latest trends in tile design and where the industry is headed next. This talk will take place on April 18 at 8:00 a.m. in Room S230C.
The Ceramics of Italy International Press Conference will take place on April 19 at 2:30 p.m. in Room S210C where senior representatives from Confindustria Ceramica will remark on the state of the industry and new tile trends, innovations, and initiatives.
