During the 25th edition of the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair), the most important North American showcase for contemporary design held in from 18 to 21 May in New York, Lea Ceramiche received the ICFF Editors Award 2013 in the “Materials” section.
As every year, ICFF calls on the most authoritative editors of the sector to reward the best in contemporary design production. After careful study by the executive committee, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center 16 categories offered the best in product design, representing all fields of production, from furniture to lighting, kitchens to bathrooms, materials to contract.
And it was precisely in the “Materials” section that Lea North America, the brand marketing and selling Lea Ceramiche in the US market, received this prestigious award. The important recognition represents a strong incentive for the company to continue to pursue its journey towards continuous research, innovation and experimentation on a material used traditionally as a simple wall and floor tiling material, porcelain stoneware. Also thanks to the introduction to the market of the revolutionary Lea Slimtech, a slab just 3 mm think with sizes up to 1 metre x 3 metres, tiles today are far more than a mere decorative furnishing element for any space, but have become a fully integral part of all architectural design.
