What can designers can expect to see at the Ceramics of Italy pavilion? Sleek sanitary ware and large-format porcelains are in style this year. Several of the porcelains accurately imitate the texture and look of marble, wood, concrete, or metals through advances in digital printing techniques. Additionally, these same methods have been used to offer patterned tile collections in a seemingly endless array of size and color options. Botanical, geometric, and Memphis-style motifs dominate the latest offerings, along with designer collaborations, like Marcante-Testa’s Confetti collection for Ceramica Vogue.
