Our first ever Cersaie 2014 (PDF download) will help you discover more possibilities with the minimum of effort.

With the opening of Cersaie 2014 in Bologna on 22 September, the city will once more become – for a period of five days – the world’s main focal point for ceramic tiling, as well as for bathroom design and furnishing. Visitors are guided to the fair by the striking ‘trade fair towers’ designed by Kenzo Tange, which have been part of Bologna’s skyline since 1967.

 

For many years now, architects and designers have been giving Cersaie its individual flair, and not simply with creative stand designs. The exhibition is enriched by a wide range of special events that convey the atmosphere surrounding the fair’s high-quality products to almost every corner of the city. One very special location is the historic architectural complex of Ex Ospedale dei Bastardini, where the 2014 Bologna Water Design showcase event will offer not only an Architonic Totem, but also numerous surprises and exhibits on the theme of water.

 

Our feature article on ceramics in interiors – along with the Architonic Guide, which has been produced for Cersaie for the very first time – will help you to find your way around the Cersaie exhibition and discover the most interesting new developments within the industry. We look forward to welcoming you at our stand in Centro Servizi, No. 9, in front of Halls 25/26.

This year our Guide London 2014 (PDF download) will help you discover more possibilities with the minimum of effort.

In September the subject of design will once more dominate public life in a number of major European cities – including the British capital, as the London Design Festival comes to town. The Thameside city is already home to some of the world’s leading designers and architects, which will naturally have a positive impact on the festival.

 

From 17 to 21 September leading protagonists in the field of design will be actively participating in the festival, benefitting not only the exhibitors but also attending professionals, visitors and consumers. Newcomers will feel equally at home in London, as will the craftsmanship-oriented specialists at Decorex International, which this year will take place in a new and impressive venue in Syon Park.

 

In all its facets – even well beyond the mainstream – the London Design Festival spreads right across the city, establishing local focal points (Tent London & Super Brands London) and individual centres (designjunction). Visitors with an instinct for exploring the design world will find the ideal opportunity for this in the twentieth 100% Design show. What began as a rather unpretentious exhibition in a tent in the Kings Road in 1995 has since developed into a widely respected centre for top British and international design.

MAISON&OBJET Paris occupies a unique place among Europe’s major trade fairs in that it takes place twice a year, in January and now in September. However, a closer look at this late-summer fireworks display of thematically related exhibitions, events and activities indicates that ʻtrade fairʼ is not really an adequate term to describe it.

 

From 5 to 9 September an exhibition area measuring a quarter of a million square metres will be bustling with life at the Parc des Expositions de Paris-Nord Villepinte. In addition to the established trade fair focal points in Halls 1 to 6, Halls 7 and 8 will – under the ʻLuxury & Designʼ label – feature scènes d’intérieur, M&O | projets | and now! design à vivre.

 

The fact that the Paris Design Week is intelligently timed to coincide with the fair means that at the beginning of September the French capital will become a single superlative design experience offering countless opportunities to get to know the very latest trends and visions, and not only an exciting creative scene, but also its main protagonists.

For almost 10,000 years – whenever natural stone has been unavailable – man has resorted to using brick wherever the aim was to create buildings that would be enduring, monumental and symbolic in character.

 

It is therefore appropriate that we should dedicate a newsletter to this ‘material’, especially as contemporary architecture seems to have rediscovered its enthusiasm for brick. Our leading article itself demonstrates that brick – in all its variations in size, colour and surface finish, as well as in the nature of the craftsmanship with which it is worked – has established a firm place for itself in modern architecture, in each case revealing its superiority over a wide range of younger materials.

 

Here’s what you’ll find in our August Newsletter:

Chongqing is one of China’s hottest, most humid cities in summer, but at Palm Island breezes blowing over the water and its buildings’ reflective facades help to reduce temperatures

Chongqing is one of China’s hottest, most humid cities in summer, but at Palm Island breezes blowing over the water and its buildings’ reflective facades help to reduce temperatures

This newsletter is devoted entirely to the element of water. Various urban projects are currently making use of its diverse aesthetic and psychological effects. Water surfaces sometimes serve as a mirror, in which the reflected buildings seem to float; at other times, they act as a link between nature and the built environment, or as a public attraction, but whatever use is made of water, it is always eye­­catching.

 

Here’s what you’ll find in our July Newsletter:

Hot enough for you? The rising temperatures of the last week or so (in Europe, at least) throw a spotlight on a perennial architectural problem – how to square our love of glazed facades in high-rise architecture with the huge amount of energy required to keep interiors cool and bearable.

 

We’ve taken this opportunity to examine some alternative and smart solutions for facade design. A selection of international projects show how the deployment of passive ventilation and shade systems can decrease our dependence on traditional air-conditioning.

 

Here’s what you’ll find in our June Newsletter:

The Leadenhall building’s steel mega-frame during construction

Think contemporary architecture and you’re more likely than not to think glass. The planned reconstruction of London’s iconic Crystal Palace – the 19th-century architectural tour de force that was arguably a precursor to the high-tech movement and who the likes of Foster, Hadid, Grimshaw and Chipperfield are in the running to resurrect – offers a unique opportunity to explore the exciting new possibilities of this ubiquitous material, while examining the latest in building technology.

The latest fair-going union of architecture and innovative material-processing technology is unveiled in Milan in the form of Architonic’s Concept Space V.

We’re back from Light+Building Frankfurt and Milan Design Week with a cartload of impressions and plenty of positive feedback. It wasn’t, it appears, just the fine weather making exhibitors on the ground happy. Things appear to be blossoming again after the fallow period of the last few years.

 

Milan Design Week marks the end of the spring fair season. So now’s a good time to take a look at some of the most memorable fair-stand architecture of the last few months, which was just as impressive as the products presented within in.

 

We’ve given our own passion for architecture and materials free expression, too, with our new Concept Space V, the result of a joint design competition with the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

 

Here’s what you’ll find in our April Newsletter:

 

Agenda May–June 2014
