I know, I know... you are all salivating for more info from Cersaie 2011. It's still coming, I promise.

You will, I'm sure, forgive my delay in favor of this amazing Tile of Spain installation which debuted in Milan, Italy at the MADE Expo in October this year.

The inspiration for this exhibit was for it to physically project some of the prime foci of the ceramic tile sector in Spain to people moving through the space. In their own words, Here's how Tile of Spain describes the space:

“Fluidity: Ceramics, a material for the city of the future”
    "Today's global society requires a greater continuity between the public and     private, between indoor and outdoor spaces, from which new synergies arise, and lead to more dynamic urban spaces with a better relationship between cities and their inhabitants. Fluidity uses the characteristics of ceramics to respond to these needs, creating urban elements characterized by a double skin, in other words with an outer side, composed of elements that decontaminate the air, and an inner side consisting of extruded ceramic tubes. The floor is flexible, forming waves that move in synergy with the various layers of the skin. Walls, ceilings and floors interact with each other".
    “The public space of the future is varied, composed of elements which             interact with one another through the use of diverse materials and various building systems, leading to design projects with versatile functions".

Green Geometries Laboratory co-founder, José Ramón Tramoyeres was the architect-curator for this exhibit.

He and his firm are the same people responsible for last year's exhibit 'Vectorice' that debuted at the Bejing Architecture Biennial. The 'Vectorice' installation was the centerpiece of Cevisama 2011's Trans Hitos exhibit which can be seen in an older blog post HERE

The ceramics and mechanical installation systems were supplied by ASCER member manufacturers; Ceramica Mayor's- Tempio, Ceracasa Ceramica, Decorativa, Natucer and Tau Ceramica to collaboratively create a custom organic space that interacts with users and the surrounding environment in a beneficial way.

This one installation exhibits many of the strengths of the tile sector in Spain- first and foremost of which is unbridled creativity and the drive for rapid & intelligent innovations. Never liking to say no to a client; each of these factories, like most ASCER manufacturers, frequently work with architects on a project by project basis to collaborate on custom solutions.

The unique space employs ventilated facades with a unique glaze & surface texture that neutralizes NOx in the atmosphere (BionicTile); a raised flexible flooring installation (Tau's S3 Systems) & columnar extruded tile interior/exterior walls that even transition to benches (co-operative effort by Natucer's Life-Arq. and Tempio's custom installation framework) The custom molded ceramic benches outside of the super-structures propose a highly durable & hygienic custom solution for public areas.
If you missed the MADE expo this year- do not despair! Fluidity was built to last and will be seen in this year's incarnation of Trans Hitos at Cevisama this February. Yet another excuse to get yourself to Valencia to experience the fair first-hand. Make sure to contact us on Twitter at the fair!
