    This year’s Cersaie in Bologna, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings, will be an opportunity for Elios Ceramica to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The company, which is now part of the Italcer Group, led by CEO Graziano Verdi, was founded in 1968 in Castelvetro. 50 years of creativity, attention to detail and elegant taste with the artistic, artisan touch of real products Made in Italy have always been the trademarks of this company from Emilia.
    Elios Ceramica presents seven collections in Bologna. Five are completely new (Horizon, Marmur, Deco Anthology, Stage and Trentino) and two are enhanced by new sizes, colours and decorations (Burlington and Grand Place).
    The Horizon collection displays unique, essential surfaces. Its elegant style is available in a selection of brushed concrete effects with modern, contemporary colours, all enhanced by a geometric decoration that transforms spaces into designer surfaces.
    Marmur offers a fine selection of marble, embellished by decorations and mosaics with golden inserts, to enhance the surfaces with unique, refined effects. The elegance of marble combines with the high- tech perfection of digital porcelain to make every space unforgettable. The collection stands out for the combination of third-firing decorations and ‘book-matched’ effect to furnish large commercial spaces.
    Deco Anthology offers an extremely varied anthology of decorations inspired by old European and Mediterranean artisan tiles. Together with the Art Nouveau and Art Deco motifs, there are geometries with Nordic and oriental designs, with patterns from far-away countries that create suggestions for trendy spaces.
    Inspired by the floor of an old stage, every plank in the Stage collection offers the emotion and traces of the past, with atmospheric colours for public and private spaces. Chevron decorations give a distinctive identity to the project.
    The beauty of natural brushed wood is reinterpreted in porcelain in the Trentino collection by Elios know-how, which transforms the material into emotion. The two natural and lapped finishes give spaces warmth and modernity
    Grand Place is a large collection inspired by bluestone with modern, natural colours. The range is now enhanced by the possibility to lay it outside: the new non-slip surface completes a range that already has extensive sizes, mosaics and special pieces.
    New bright, modern nuances, a lapped version and 3D decoration are features of the Burlington collection. The timeless naturalness of sedimentary stone meets the high-tech value and resistance of full-body porcelain that is reliable and hard-wearing in every application.
    The graphics that characterise the outside of the stand celebrate the anniversary, with the dates in large, stylised numbers.
    Inside, an ideal pathway accompanies visitors on a discovery of new materials and winds round a central island dedicated to two brand-new collections: Marmur and Horizon. Each Elios Ceramica collection is not only presented through installed products, but for the first time through objects and furnishing elements that complete the applications and stylistic moods of the collections. They have been inspired by different spaces and trends: Nordic style and spaces with a contemporary mood, both private and commercial.
    The exhibition of ceramic products not only includes traditional laying, but a new system of mobile summary panels and various installation suggestions.
    Ceramic tradition with 50 years’ experience, but still continually evolving, aware of modern trends to meet the needs of an increasingly demanding Italian and international clientele.

    “Half a century of history is a solid base on which Elios continues to build its future, together with its collaborators and partners,” commented Graziano Verdi, Italcer Group CEO. “Group investments in innovation and new technologies have begun to produce the expected results. This historic Emilia company creates the purest examples of products Made in Italy and has still plenty to say and to produce”.
