Construction materials and technology mean more than mere materiality to architecture. Like fabric influences and inspires fashion design, materials drive and inspire architecture – influencing the creativity and perception of designers and users.

Florim has been inspiring architecture for over 50 years by leading the market of quality ceramics and advanced manufacturing technologies. Thanks to innovation and excellence in technology, they have managed to contribute to the construction of eminent pieces of architecture and built environment.

The goal is to create an installation that can, on the one hand, embody the brand and, on the other hand, illustrate its achievements. This first edition of the contest “EXHIB-IT!” aims to frame an installation-manifesto that can represent sustainability and quality on one of the most eminent venues for the “made in Italy”.
