Iris Ceramica Group to open first UK showroom
Ceramic and porcelain tile manufacturer Iris Ceramica Group is to open a London showroom next week.
The 4,767sqft showroom will be the first time the group’s eight brands - Iris Ceramica, Fiandre, FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti, Ariostea, Eiffelgres, Porcelaingres, Stonepeak Ceramics and Sapienstone – will be on show together in the UK.
The three storey Old Street, Clerkenwell show will officially open on 20 June.
Each floor has a unique style. On the ground floor visitors will be able to see a boutique hotel atmosphere. A white staircase leads to the top floor, which houses the Diesel Living collection and materials inspired by the metropolitan world. The basement however is a more private dimension, transporting visitors into a spa-like layout, with traditional tile formats as the backdrop. A water feature is the centrepiece with private spaces around the edges, creating a strong evocative ambience and making this floor ideal for independent working.
‘We’re very proud and excited to be opening our new London showroom. A lot of effort and time has gone into ensuring that it represents our core values of beauty, innovation and sustainability. We really look forward to welcoming London’s design community through our doors, who we hope to inspire and impress in equal measure,’ says Federica Minozzi, Iris Ceramica Group ceo.
The Italian manufacturer recently opened showrooms in Berlin and New York.
