Cersaie, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tiles and Bathroom Furnishings, reeled in architects from around the world to check out the latest. As fashion leads, this year’s trends were identified during the press conference by Sabina Magrini, Regional Secretary of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism, and could be seen from hall to hall, stand to stand. What’s out then? A love for geometry with hexagonal lines, for example. Magrini explained that in addition to geometrical trends, we’re seeing modern mosaic, an urban pop-art style, playful pattern and fabric designs, optical illusions where ceramic takes on the look of wood or steel and a tridimensional look. As Magrini said, several brands including Italian Sant’ Agostino and Turkish Kale will mix a little bit of everything together.
