Back at Expo 2015. A walk through the pavilions that carry our hallmark.

In an article we posted a few days ago we told you why you can find the best of Italian ceramics at the Kuwait pavilion. But we only told you a part of what awaits you at Expo 2015.
If you have an eye for design, you will adore just looking at the structures and contemplating the creative energy required to construct and fit out the vast range of Expo 2015 pavilions.The fair is a fascinating journey that explores different themes, identities and food chains in a series of futuristic structures designed with an innovative, sustainable approach by leading contemporary architects.
And once again, Cooperativa Ceramica d'Imola are at the heart of this event, decorating spaces, telling stories, creating trails and expressing the leitmotif of this huge fair: Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.

So which pavilions carry the Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola hallmark? Let's discover them together!

#In the Germany pavilion, the style is minimalist and contemporary.

Three floor and wall tile collections star in this lively, distinctive space that bubbles with ideas and expertise in combining architectural design with the material on display.

Icon by LeonardoCeramica

Versatile, with modular formats and a range of no less than 12 plain colours, these tiles can be mixed together to create exciting aesthetic effects. LeonardoCeramica's Icon is a collection that presents a sophisticated and unprecedented “design” structure with an incredibly natural surface feel and a unique “crumpled paper” effect.

Concrete Project and ImolaCeramica Habitat If the concrete effect and contemporary mood of Concrete Project make it the ideal, full-bodied porcelain stoneware tile for modern architecture and design locations, Habitat is an elegant, minimalist tile that is highly versatile thanks to its wide range of colours and formats.

#The Ireland pavilion, industrial inspiration

Here the surfaces of Creative Concrete with their unique concrete effect feel and finish evoke an urban, metropolitan spirit. And it is this mood that gives the Ireland pavilion such a distinctive air as it invites visitors to come and experience the beauty of its countryside and wild Atlantic coastline.
Creative Concrete's full-bodied porcelain stoneware creates a pleasant contrast - a sense of antithesis based on relief elements and subtle tone-on-tone effects.

#Sober, disciplined beauty in Korea

At Expo 2015 the Republic of Korea have designed a meeting area inspired by the “moon jar”, the traditional urn in which traditional Korean dishes are fermented.
With its sharp and sober beauty, he LeonardoCeramica collection, Sherpa, suits this context perfectly, as this full-bodied porcelain stoneware offers a masterful combination of hi-tech quality and the look of natural stone.
