Everyday hygiene and prevention: the antibacterial efficacy of Active 2.0 ceramic surfaces

Antibacterial and anti-pollutant, with self-cleaning properties: these are the key qualities of the Iris Ceramica Group’s Active 2.0 ceramic slabs, which use the natural process of photocatalysis to augment their unique ISO-certified properties. Digital production significantly improves the distribution over the surface of the slab of its active components: titanium dioxide and silver ions, the combined action of which permits Active 2.0 slabs to act not only with natural light but with LED light and even in the dark. Active 2.0 surfaces, guaranteed by international scientific standards and certification, offer all the beauty and technical properties of the Iris Ceramica Group’s ceramic slabs and are ideal for indoor and outdoor use in community settings

CARNIVOROUS ARCHITECTURE

Is architecture today carnivorous? Exuberant, untouched vegetation perform close-up shots of Peter Bialobrzeski’s series, Paradise Now and Neon Lights. Seductive photographs, with romantic diaphanous, pastel tones, portray peripheries of Asian ‘megatropolis’, that apparently resemble idyllic jungle. At a second glance the deceptive beauty of the pristine green, overshadowed by the artificial neon lights of the city, gradually loses all its naturalness, slowly revealing fragments of a concrete landscape, brightly lit high-rises dangerously advancing closer and closer from the background with their destructive forces.
