Atlas Concorde’s “Evolve” series

With more than 915 exhibitors from more than 150 countries, and an estimated 80,000 visitors expected, the 2011 edition of Cersaie, held in Bologna, Italy, features tile products with nature-mimicking designs such as wood, leaves and flowers, as well as large format styles in updated colors and textures.

Also observed is an increased use of mixed materials, evident with the infusion of glass and stones as well.

The following are just a sampling of all the new products viewed during Cersaie. We’ll be adding to this album in the coming days.
