The new competition launched by Refin Ceramiche

“Create your tile” is the contest organized by Refin Ceramiche, open to designers and architects from all over the world. Originality, commercial potential, industrial reproduction: these are the key factors of the brief that calls for a collection of porcelain stoneware tiles developed with one or more graphic variants (up to a maximum of 20), in a square format (60x60cm or 75x75cm), for residential and/or commercial flooring. The winning project will be the one that does the best job of using recent production technologies, interpreting contemporary interior trends and the values of research promoted by DesignTaleStudio, a brand of Ceramiche Refin. A jury of experts from the world of design, chaired by the architects Alessandro and Francesco Mendini, will pick the winners from a list of 25 finalists. Projects can be submitted until 30 April; the finalists will be selected by 5 May, and the three winners will be indicated by the jury in September. The prize ceremony will happen at Cersaie 2014, 22-26 September in Bologna, where the winners can talk about their products and present their work to an audience of potential clients and journalists.
