Shopping mall Itis

L'Itäkeskus Shopping Centre, rinominato Itis nel 2012, è il più grande centro commerciale non solo della Finlandia ma dell'intero Nord Europa, situato nel distretto omonimo ad est di Helsinki. 

The Itäkeskus Shopping Centre, which takes its name from the district to the East of Helsinki but which was renamed Itis in 2012, is not only the largest shopping centre in Finland but also the largest shopping centre in all of Northern Europe.
Opened in 1984, the shopping centre has undergone three different development phases; twenty years after it first opened the Itis Shopping Centre has been recently renovated during a project by London-based Haskoll Architects. A project started in 2012 and finished in 2014, including external facades and hallways. The project was aimed at the renovation of obsolete structures and at the extension of the shopping area for further 12,000m².
Today, the Itis stretches over a surface of 140,000m² on 4 storeys, of which 100,000m² are dedicated to 120 shops, 15 restaurants, 2 department stores and 30 offices. The style characterising the new structure recalls the elements typical of modern architecture, with clean and luminous lines enhancing the space.

In this context, Caesar contributed to the renovation project with a supply of ceramic tiles for the flooring of hallways, public areas that require high resistance and durability as well as aesthetic appeal. Gate, the Caesar collection in Made in Italy porcelain stoneware, proved to be the perfect solution merging efficiency and design and interpreting the contemporary mood of cement into ceramics. The minimalist and alluring graphics of Gate were chosen in four different colours (Downtown, Tube, Licorice, Breath), to create various graphic designs and a type of ceramic carpet that denotes the promenade and highlights the entrances, shop windows, directions, etc.

Trace Mint: the ceramic slab that boasts... countless attempts at imitation

Trace Mint: ahead of the trends

Caesar’s 2014 objective was a tough one: to convey the industrial fascination and retro charm of weathered metalon ceramic, with a view to unveiling to its professional and private public, an original original material that was well able to take a leading role in a design environment.

This challenge took on the decisive features of the Trace collection: metal inspirations celebrating metropolitan rusticity and combining the technical qualities of porcelain tiles with a decisive decorative character, flaunting a deliberately weathered look.

The collection spread rapidly throughout the five continents, bringing its distinct hues to hotels, restaurants, villas ans swimming pools alike. The Mint colour, in particular, was - and continues to be - extremely popular, inspired by oxidised copper. And the shade has proven to be a forerunner of the trends that continue to characterise the design projects today.
