History in a contemporary key

Ceramiche Refin staged the Fornace and Vetri Lux collections at Cersaie, inside the Arch Architecture exhibition: two modern reinterpretations of terracotta and glass

At the international reference event for the market of ceramic surfaces and bathroom furnishings, Ceramiche Refin, an Italian company whose offer of solutions in porcelain stoneware made in Italy satisfies every type of project, will be present with numerous new products, as well as additions to existing collections.

The historical know-how in the ceramic tile market and the constant commitment to research and product development have been used this year in the development of collections with the refinement and stylistic variety that leads the Emilian brand to enrich its offer with ranges with amazing aesthetic effects and consolidated technical and functional characteristics.
The ranges proposed are the answer to the needs of the most contemporary interior projects, which use a variety of materials from the most industrial such as steel, cement and glass to the most traditional and natural such as stones.
Arch Architecture, the installation designed by Adriani and Rossi for the Ceramiche Refin exhibition space at Cersaie 2019 is inspired by the architectural element of the arch, a triumphant invention of Etruscan engineering, brought to its maximum splendour by Roman architecture, and then resumed in the Renaissance and from then until the Neoclassicism of the nineteenth century, maintaining over the centuries its leading role among the building structures.
From the arch originates the path that leads to the discovery of the different
collections presented.

The FORNACE collection revisits terracotta in a contemporary key and proposes it in a large format, making it extremely modern and contemporary. And the large format, combined with a refined texture in the graphic contrasts and colours, represents the hallmark of this series. The colours are characterized by a uniform appearance, the graphics are light, interrupted by light clouding and a few scratches on the surface. For refined interiors where the material presence gives personality to the spaces without being invasive.

In the FOIL collection, the stoneware takes on the appearance of metal sheets on the surface of which lustre effects, small scratches and invisible signs at first glance, recall the workings of the bodies of the cars of the past, beaten by hand by the artisans beaters, creating that post-industrial charm and vaguely retro that represents one of the main current trends in the field of furniture and decoration.
