CERAMICS OF ITALY ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– by Francesca Molteni and archi- tectural historian Fulvio Irace. The short film will be followed by a panel discussion with past winners of the competition and a guided walking tour of the Ceramics of Italy Pavilion. Installation Design Showcase Ceramics of Italy is a proud sponsor of the Installation Design Showcase – an interactive exhibit pairing innovative products with creative design and expert installation. Attendees are invited to visit the Tiny House throughout the show where installers from Visalia Ceramic Tile will bring Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry’s luxe cottage concept to life. A wide range of Italian products will be used throughout the space, from wood-look tiles to rich blue tones with chic metallic accents, culmi- nating in an intimate, rustic-modern escape. The installation will be completed by Thursday afternoon and members of the design and instal- lation team will present the project during IDS: Deconstructed from 3-4 pm in Hall C, Booth 8804. Throughout the show floor the “Made in Italy” trademark indicates products that are defined by high aesthetic quality, durabil- ity, and environmental responsibil- ity. For those who can’t make it to Atlanta, Ceramics of Italy will post live updates on Facebook (@ CeramicsofItalyNA), Twitter and Instagram (@CeramicsofItaly).
