Sisma appointed ViTre Studio to construct its new headquarters in the province of Vicenza, and the project won second prize in the Renzo Piano Foundation Award. Accomplished by a 14-strong team of designers, the shape and the choice of materials for the industrial unit architecture reflect its setting. The plant systems adopted take into account the values of sustainability, earning the work Class A energy performance certification.
Visual communication is all about rules and creativity expressed through design. Fiandre has inaugurated a new showroom designed by the Polish architectural studio medusagroup specifically to show off the qualities of the company’s Maximum extra-large ceramic tiles: an interior conveying all the qualities of the material and its ability to renew architecture.
At Mosbuild in Moscow, the best porcelain manufacturers showed off the excellence of Italian tiles, offering not only aesthetic pleasure but advanced production technology and free choice of sizes. From petrified wood ceramics to glossy marble-like porcelain, the choice of finishes was another surprise.

Designing fragility means re-establishing the relationship of attention between man and object.
Pavements on waterfronts and all areas in contact with water - swimming pools, spas and wellness centres – require a special focus on choice of materials. Graniti Fiandre offers a number of solutions guaranteeing perfect inclusion in the landscape and safe, comfortable use, as in the Wellness System line.
