Porcel-Thin to showcase new ‘Book Match’ tiles at SLEEP ‘The Hotel Design Event’ 2015
We’re delighted to be introducing our sensational new ‘Book Match’ tile collection at Europe’s premier interiors show – SLEEP ‘The Hotel and Design Event’. Not only are we presenting our exceptional new range of natural marble-effect tiles, we’re also collaborating at the event with two highly prestigious brands.
The SLEEP Hotel Design Event, held at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, on 24th and 25th November 2015, is one of the most prominent shows on the hotel industry’s calendar. Attracting interior designers, specifiers, architects and hotel groups from around the world, it’s a showcase of the very best developments in hotel bathroom design, from some of the most esteemed names.
An open book
At the event, we will be launching the first tile in our stunning new Book Match collection of natural marble-effect tiles. Book matching is where two adjoining surfaces mirror each other, giving the impression of an opened book. The exquisite tiles boast a digitally printed reproduction of the magnificent and ever popular Calacatta white marble, with its delectable strong black veins. A striking centerpiece for any room, the book matched pattern is printed across 24 thin tiles, each measuring 1200 x 600m and 4.8mm thick, to create one large, spectacular 4.8m x 3m image.
Sleep Set: What fairy tales are made of
Dubbed the ‘catwalk of hotel design’, the ‘Sleep Set’ competition at this year’s show ‘draws on the essence of fairy tales’ with competitors ‘weaving their own story… to engage guests in new ways’. We’re thrilled that The Harrods Studio has chosen our new Calacatta marble-effect book match porcelain tiles for the walls and floor of its luxury hotel suite design, created for the competition, which sees them ‘playing on the idea of inversion and bringing the outside in to create some very exciting theatrics’. This will be the first public viewing of our new Calacatta tiles.
We’re also collaborating at the show with luxury Spanish bathroom furniture and shower tray brand, Fiora. We’ve created two examples of deluxe hotel bathrooms for our stand, using Fiora slim shower trays and furniture to perfectly complement our porcelain floor and wall tiles. We feature our delightful, polished surface Paris Aquamarine tile in one example, while in the other we use the Ferrara Jurassic Vein black and 3D Shadow Marmara Equator marble-effect extra-large format tiles, which sit beautifully alongside the exquisite Fiora designer bathroom furniture.
