This week marks the start of the Cevisama ceramic tile show in Spain, and Inhabitat is reporting live from Valencia on the world’s most cutting-edge ceramics. You heard that right – we’re in Spain to soak in the sights and check out ceramic tiles while we’re at it. This ancient material has received a 21st century upgrade as manufacturers are taking steps to reduce material use, cut carbon emissions, and optimize energy efficiency, and we’re looking forward to checking out an array of innovations ranging from tiles made from recycled materials to air-purifying ceramics and grassy green wall tiles. We’ll be hitting the show floor all week as part of the Reign in Spain tour hosted by Tile of Spain, so stay tuned for our coverage of the best and brightest innovations in Spanish ceramics.
