Over the next couple of weeks Diary of a Tile Addict will be sharing some of the new tile ranges that will be on display at Coverings, Atlanta, USA from 8th May. Tile Addict is starting with one of Spain’s foremost manufacturers, Colorker. A nod towards design and creativity, the Evoke range is from Colorker’s ZYX collection. Featuring triangular and small diamond shapes with a multitude of finishes and reliefs, the varying sizes and textures create remarkable personalities, designs and play on light.
Colorker’s Lincoln collection delivers a faithful imitation of the veining of natural marble with a subtle twist. Lincoln is available in white, a raised window relief and a graphic grey pattern with slight color variation. The range comes in six formats of varying thickness.
Colorker is just one of the factories exhibiting under the Tile of Spain umbrella, the international brand representing 125 ceramic tile manufacturers belonging to Ascer (the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturer’s Association). As well as helping members showcase a fantastic array of innovative tile designs, Ascer will deliver a schedule of value-adding events at Coverings 2018, North America’s largest tile and stone exhibition.
The Tile of Spain booth, located in the center of the Spanish Pavilion, will feature educational seminars and video presentations, including award-winning architectural and design projects and an overview of Tile of Spain manufacturers’ achievements.
Visitors to the Spanish Pavilion will witness some of the most advanced ceramic tile technology and breathtaking design choices the world has to offer from the 85 Spanish ceramic and stone manufacturers exhibiting at the show.
