Not only technology but also trends and aesthetics: Tecna Next Design turns the spotlight on creativity in surfaces through the moodboards proposed by trend hunter and the activities managed by Ceramic Design Made in Italy studios.

Italian Design Surfaces is one of the two precious insights - together with Timeless Surfaces - dedicated to the latest trends for ceramic surfaces.

A passion for creativity and cutting-edge technology are the two pillars of Italian surface design excellence.

Ever since the 1970s, Italian design firms have influenced and shaped the aesthetic development of the ceramic industry, evolving and adapting to trends and decoration technology in order to meet the needs of all surface manufacturers.

Built on experience, technical expertise, creativity and a passion for beauty, the sector is capable of generating value and developing products for use as surface coverings and decorations in homes and business premises. On Tecna Next, the ACIMAC-affiliated design firms present the lesser-known aspects of research into surface covering materials and the efforts that have gone into developing the collections of furnishing surfaces on the market, sharing the innovations, research and creativity that lies behind every project.

As part of the Italian Design Surfaces section, Materiali Casa and Surfaces International are presenting Design Talks, a series of interviews with Italian architects and designers focusing on the latest aesthetic and technical trends in the world of surfaces. These half-hour talks offer in-depth analysis of the trends and prospects for Italian-made design.
