This year Valencia traditionally received Cevisama, the mega-event in the world of ceramic tile. This exhibition generally features Spanish ceramic tile and porcelain stoneware brands. Along with the industry trailblazers, the fair hosted artisan family undertakings, which preserve the secrets of handmade tile. It took several months for the brands to get prepared for Cevisama. Starting from the Cersaie International Exhibition, held in September 2014 in Bologna, the manufacturers kept thoroughly studying the current industry trends, developing innovative materials, glazes, improving quality and performance to proudly present the outcome of their hard work at Cevisama 2015.
The designers draw inspiration in the all-natural materials. The textures imitating stone, wood and concrete, common for the urban context, were presented almost at every stand.
One of the most beautiful booths at Cevisama 2015 was arranged by Tau. The main presentation mount was dedicated to Beton, the novelty of this year. The series is composed of the large-size concrete effect tile. There are two surface finishes: natural and semi-polished.
Aparici came up with a series of unworked surface tile.
Saloni presented its new Sunset collection. The fusion of pastel shades and relief surface gives amazing effect.
The Keraben Group exhibited its collections in the largest booth at Cevisama 2015. Madeira by Iris Ceramica, featuring the tile of 100×24.8 cm with natural and polished finishes, was sure to be in the limelight.
Arcana counted once again on natural stone, an integral element of every classical interior. Vergonese is an exquisite evocation of a noble stone grade.
Pamesa came up with Atlas, a sheer flower print over the delicate pastel background.
Hexagons still run the show. Over the last years, this tile shape has been continuously interpreted in various sizes, textures and shapes. Still, it was widely presented in the portfolios of all Cevisama 2015 standholders.
In Hexagono Fingal and Hexagono Yereban Vives fuses hexagonal shape with concrete-imitating texture.
Black-and-white hexagons by Decocer.
The brand-new products by Natucer are worth of close attention. This Spanish enterprise was among the winners of Alfa de Oro 2015.
3DHEX is one of the arresting novelties by Natucer. This is a ceramic tile collection with relief surface.
Another key trend of the year is the brickwork effect or so-called "subway" tile. Touched by refined simplicity, this small tile reinterprets different textures, such as terracotta and wood.
Amadis and Essentials are distinguished by clear gloss, pronounced relief and fine crazing.
Dante by Bestile consists of the 12×24 cm rectangles with relief floral patterns.
Florencia by Latina imitates richly adorned handcrafted tile in the broad range of shadings.
The small-size tile was also widely presented an Cevisama 2015.
Heritage, the novelty by Gayafores, is a whimsical patchwork in black-and-white gamut.
The novelties by Mainzu included Caprice, Heraldo and HD Effects.
Cevica has prepared several new collections to demonstrate at Cevisama 2015. Sophisticated decors and joyful palette, certainly, reflect the signature style of this Spanish brand.
