Elmas railway station

The restructuring of the Elmas railway stations in Sardinia, the subject of important work steered by architect Marco Tradori and by engineer Paolo Fadda, has been selected as the winner in the “Institutional” category of the “La Ceramica e il Progetto 2019” contest organised by Confindustria Ceramica and Cersaie.

 

The fruit of a concept that adapts existing structures to new design needs, the work involved integrating the pre-existing building with new spaces dedicated to catering and commercial activity, encouraging social aggregation in a heavily-trafficked urban area that was nevertheless lacking in services. This architectonic development was carried out according to modern and functional criteria, without overlooking the environmental impact, also from an artistic standpoint.

 

In this regard, the versatility typical of Caesar ceramics proved essential as, with its wide range of products, the company knew exactly how to offer the right solution, combining outstanding beauty, naturalness and functionality.

 

The external façade of the station has been completed with 30x120 cm porcelain tiles from the More series. The alternating of three different natural tones – Nylus, Iridium, Lux - makes for a “pixel effect” that recalls that of the area’s typical sedimentary rock, deriving from loam and sediment in the nearby Santa Gilla basin and solidified with the passing of geological eras.

The same influence and series is also harnessed for the flooring of the station that, dressed in the colours of Nylus, in its 30x60 cm size, ensures a very appealing overall result that is both coherent and natural.

London's Skyline: how has it changed and how is it going to change again

 “I’ve been walking about London for the last thirty years, and I find something fresh in it every day”.

 

 This is how Walter Besant described London in 1896. A city with a thousand souls, contrasts and stories, always different, changing with the point of view of whoever looks at it. The aphorism is just as true now, for a city whose stylistic contradictions and architectural evolution will make any visitor fall in love with its many surprising perspectives.

 Caesar has played a pioneering role in this trendsetting city, aiming to capture its urban transformations and changes and translate them into cutting edge ceramic products. Since 2007 the Fiorano company has set down its roots in the British capital, first with the Design Center, a meeting point located in Covent Garden; then, in 2015, with the inauguration of its first ceramics showroom in London: the Urban Lab, located in the heart of the Clerkenwell design district, soon became a point of reference for designers and materials.

Classic Blue selected as Colour of 2020: Caesar ahead of the curve

For the last 20 years, the announcement of the colour of the year has been one of the most hotly anticipated moments in the calendar for designers and aficionados of style and design. The colour of year can be used as part of interior design projects to showcase their ability to reflect the latest sociological trends, or be incorporated into the home via smaller objects which keep our private spaces in sync with developing styles.

Since 2000, the company responsible for selecting the colour of the year has been Pantone, the US market leader in colour cataloguing and the inventor of the eponymous colour identification system.
