Visit Stand 401 to see an inspiring display from leading Spanish tile manufacturers at London’s Business Design Centre, 6th - 8th February 2024

Spanish tile brands will be out in force at the 2024 edition of the Surface Design Show, demonstrating what keeps this vibrant industry at the cutting edge of ceramic and porcelain design. The voice of the Spanish tile industry, which is famed for its unique heritage and pioneering personality, Tile of Spain represents over 100 manufacturers and has brought together 17 of those to introduce their newest ranges and innovations at the event.

Sustainable, safe, hygienic, easy-care, durable, hi tech… and authentically beautiful, Spanish tiles will keep specifiers, trendwatchers and the design-savvy engaged at the show with all the latest looks and qualities. Collections for both residential and commercial spaces, and for interior and exterior environments, will be on show with representatives on hand to share their expertise.

From decorative pieces in a variety of formats and finishes, to porcelain slabs displaying their distinct benefits, from pattern to colour and from reliefs to glazes, premium ceramic products are all set to bring unique Spanish flair to surface design.  

Themes to take note of:


FINE LINES

Dune - Kit Kat                                                                                        Natucer – My V Deluxe

Tau -  Olite                                                                                                 El Barco - Domino

The delicacy of fine lines is a distinct trend in Spanish ceramics, offering a pleasing yet discreet sense of texture and an interplay with the light, together with the opportunity in some cases to use coloured grout to stylish effect. Decorative wall tiles, in ‘stacked’ formats or 3D extruded reliefs from brands such as Cevica, El Barco, Dune and Tau, enable a range of creative ways to apply this striking look.

FADED ELEGANCE

Porcelanosa – Nebula                                                                         Decocer – Solstice

fineline

Realonda – Fresco                                                                               Cristacer - Essentia

The proud history of Spanish ceramics, from artisanal craftsmanship to the iconic repeating motifs of encaustic tiles, is honoured by new collections that reference this tradition with contemporary ingenuity. The latest designs suggest surfaces that have stood the test of time, with all the charm of distressed effects or the intrigue of barely-there details. This soft, faded beauty also comes with all the strength, safety and easy-care durability of modern tile technology, from brands such as Porcelanosa, Decocer, Realonda and Cristacer.

TRIANGLES WITH A TWIST

Adex – Levante                                                                                   Vives - Micra Zepto

Cevica – New York

From nostalgic patterns to eye-catching optical effects, the humble triangle (and variations on the theme) is making its presence felt in recent Spanish tile collections. Versatility is key to the ceramic industry in Spain and hi-tech factories are able to produce everything from ‘handmade’ aesthetics to contemporary prints, with Adex, Vives and Cevica all shaping up beautifully to this geometric trend.

TERRIFIC TERRACOTTA

The burnt oranges and earthy browns of fired clay are deeply rooted in Spanish culture and instantly reminiscent of traditional architecture. In fresh yet warm celebrations of this motif, the latest collections breathe new life into terracotta in a variety of tones, textures and typologies. From the zelig formats of Cevica to the suggestion of visible toolwork from Roca and the matt, linear formats of Bestile and Equipe, terracotta returns in style.

Cevica - Zelij                                                                                          Roca – Fez

Equipe – Fango                                                                                    Bestile - Anisa

FROM WALL TO FLOOR

Arcana – Betilo                                                                                    Coverlam – Cuarzo

fine

Undefasa – Solid+ Nordby

The new generations of hi-tech porcelain slabs can not only replicate the look of any material or finish, they can also be applied to any surface, vertical or horizontal. The advantages of installing a robust, high-performance, sustainable product to both wall and floor are both aesthetic and practical, offering cohesive looks, enduring beauty and easy maintenance. Specialist manufacturers Arcana, Coverlam and Undefasa have it comprehensively covered.

Tile of Spain looks forward to welcoming visitors to stand 401 at London’s Business Design Centre from the 6th to the 8th of February 2024.
