Casa monica - private house

Senza gas, dotata di un sistema di riciclo dell’acqua piovana, di pannelli solari e di quattro pozzi geotermici: è a Modena l’“abitazione più ecologica d’Italia”, che produce energia e non inquina. 

Without gas, equipped with a system for recycling rain water, solar panels and four geothermal pools: the “most eco-friendly house in Italy” is in Modena, a house that produces energy and is pollution-free. In a residential quarter at just a few steps from the historical city centre, Casa Monica is 80% energy self-sufficient, thanks to a photovoltaic system on the roof for the production of electric energy and a geothermal system for under-floor cooling in summer and heating in winter. For these reasons, the two-floor house, which has built using timber from South Tyrol, is the first Italian building to have been awarded the GBC Home Platinum certification, according to the strict protocols of the American “Green Building Council”. Ceramiche Caesar, that has made respect for people and the environment essential reference values, has contributed to reaching such an important target, by supplying the floors of the outdoor area, in particular the Aextra20 monolithic porcelain stoneware slabs with a thickness of 20 mm. Urban Grey and Trendy Black of the stone effect ceramic series E.motions, apart from ensuring aesthetic value and functional efficiency, fulfil the requirements in terms of atmospheric refraction that are requested to obtain the Leed credits necessary for the GBC certification. Thanks to exceptional performance in terms of resistance and stability, Aextra20 is the ideal solution for outdoor spaces that are subject not only to heavy traffic but also to atmospheric agents.

The design store of the future at Euroshop 2020

The retail world has undergone a profound change during the last decade. E-commerce has embraced more and more sectors and consumers, leaving room for apocalyptic forecasts which have however been quickly overcome by the ability on the part of retailers to accommodate the new challenges posed by the market. Manufacturing companies have learned to liaise directly with the end consumers, and the latter are increasingly better informed and aware of topics which are not strictly tied to the product, such as ethical, social and environmental policies.

Industry professionals have therefore had to become accustomed to constant change, pursuing solutions capable of improving the buying experience and offering consumers innovative services. This year, the main showcase on the future of retail had been Euroshop 2020, the biggest industry trade fair in the world, helded from 16th until 20th February in Düsseldorf.

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.
