Cersaie 2023

Sichenia @ Cersaie 2023

On the occasion of Cersaie 2023, the International Exhibition of Ceramics for Architecture and Bathroom Furnishings, Sichenia’s booth is renewed with new spaces and collections.

Opening the doors of the booth is the P_arkett series, which narrates the journey of Sichenia’s Creative Laboratory from the search for the most natural wood essences in Austria to the development of a range of elegant, contemporary products with bright and vibrant colors.

The collection stands out for its dual finish: Satin and Soft Grip. The former imparts a reflective appearance, reminiscent of the oiled wood effect. The Soft-Grip technology keeps the surfaces soft to the touch while providing high technical performance for slip resistance.

In addition to P_arkett, there is a preview of 2024: Prestige, a new interpretation of marble, extremely elegant and featuring innovative 3D technology.

From wood, we move on to a project that gathers various material inspirations. Glam Project is born from the desire to have flooring and wall covering materials that can be easily matched with each other and capable of creating aesthetic solutions for all spaces.

The color, modulated across different tones and materials, intensifies the contrasts and, together with them, gives life to a world where tradition merges with modernity.

Con_crete & Art by Sichenia

The third room is a celebration of the essential lines of concrete and wall decorations. In this area, we wanted to celebrate the evolution of the urban look, enriched by suggestive textures reminiscent of nature, a blend where elegance and modernity coexist in perfect harmony.

Particular importance has been given to the Atocha decoration, a three-dimensional wall covering that becomes a decorative element, elegant and capable of conveying style and design in every space. The reliefs lend themselves to suggestive plays of light, creating sophisticated atmospheres.

The heart of the booth is represented by Pavè delle Alpi, a modern reinterpretation of Pavè that has represented Sichenia in the world for 30 years.

This collection draws inspiration from the intense variability of sought-after stones and offers versatile solutions for both indoor and outdoor spaces.

With this collection, Sichenia introduces an important technological innovation: Stucco Facile. It’s an innovative system that allows for the creation of surfaces where the individual tile module becomes invisible after installation. In the Pavé delle Alpi wall, the pebbles come in various sizes and shapes, creating the effect of a real stone wall.

Si torna a scuola con Essenze!

Si torna a scuola con Essenze!

Torniamo a scuola con un progetto che vede come protagonista la collezione Essenze.
Per rivestire i pavimenti della scuola Primaria F. Confalonieri di Cremella (LC) è stato utilizzato il colore Rovere, nel formato 20x120cm.

Da sempre la ceramica è l’alternativa ai materiali naturali, per svariati motivi: maggiore sostenibilità, economia e caratteristiche tecnologiche che a volte non conosciamo ma ci permettono di utilizzare un materiale con caratteristiche superiori ai marmi, alle pietre e ai legni naturali.

La ceramica è un materiale sicuro e igienico, in quanto si pulisce facilmente ed essendo priva di pori, rappresenta un ambiente inadatto all’insediamento di acari e batteri.

E’ un materiale duraturo e inalterabile, resta sempre come nuovo con il passare del tempo.

Amboise: created to satisfy all stylistic needs

amboise

Sichenia takes inspiration from a stone that, among all others, plays a leading role in a millennia-old story: Tuffeau.

This limestone stone predominates in the Loire Valley castles, which, with their magnificence, remain a masterpiece of beauty and elegance. Thus, Amboise is born, a line capable of reproducing the uniqueness of the stone and its ability to convey the history of the spaces it adorns. The lived-in look of Amboise intensifies the relationship between the interior and exterior, ensuring continuity and stylistic coherence. This is a trend that is becoming increasingly popular in the world of architecture and design, one that Sichenia has adopted for some time now.


When nature meets ceramic technology, a timeless material is born.


The wide range of formats, various types of edges, and different thicknesses allow for finding solutions perfectly in line with modern stylistic and design needs.

Download the catalog

Amboise is designed to meet all stylistic needs, offering three edge options (Straight, Chipped, and Vintage) and four surface finishes (Smooth, Soft-grip®, Lappato, and Grip).

Straight Edge

Slabs with perfectly linear rectified edges created to obtain an ideal surface effect in modern
settings, and characterized by a surface finish with Soft-Grip® R10 A+B technology.

Chipped Edge

The ground edges are rounded and antiqued, the surface is soft. The light three-dimensional
microstructure effect favors a lived-in effect while maintaining the elegance of the rooms.

Vintage Edge

The edges are highly irregular and antiqued, the surface is soft and pleasant to the touch. Vintage is an industrial process that simulates random hammering on the edges in order to break them and generate tiles that are different from each other.

STRAIGHT EDGE

The slabs with rectified edges give a more elegant and contemporary look. These edges come with two finishes: Soft-Grip® and Lappata.
The Soft-Grip® finish remains soft to the touch but, at the same time, gives high performance in terms of slip resistance, both for indoor and outdoor environments.
Sichenia’s technical laboratory has also verified the high surface resistance to trampling of this surface, comparable to class U4 according to Cahier CSTB 3778_V4 10/2020.
The honed finish is reflective and enhances the natural color of the collection, giving brightness and an elegant appearance to the environment.
A special feature of this edge is the size 40×120 20mm, perfect for covering low walls or outdoor steps.

CHIPPED EDGE

The antiqued edges are the result of an exclusive Sichenia process, recalling and enhancing the irregularity of the material. The authentic feeling of a floor covered with a stone-inspired material with antiqued edges is also improved by the multi-format installation and its rich chromatic variations.
The chipped edge offers two finishes: Smooth and Grip.
The Smooth finish, soft to the touch and slightly reflective, further enhances the innate shadeshading aspect of the collection. The characteristic of the Grip finish is that it is non-slip, therefore particularly suitable for floor applications in damp or wet outdoor spaces and is available in two thicknesses: 10 and 20mm.

VINTAGE EDGE

The edges are characterized by a strong irregular aged effect whose charm refers to a heritage and rustic style.
The look of a stone consumed by time and wear is updated by a single 60×90 size, conceived to answer the stylistic needs of contemporary design. Ideal for welcoming and, at the same time, elegant and modern environments, it pleases the eye with the three-dimensionality of the shapes.

LYS CENTER

LYS CENTER

Sichenia has provided 17,000 square meters of porcelain stoneware to cover the floors and walls of the prestigious LYS Center, located in Kinshasa, bringing the excellence of Italian-made ceramics to one of the major African metropolitan areas.

The selected ceramic material includes various products.

This is an ambitious and distinctive project, consisting of 11 floors, where Sichenia surfaces become an integral part, combining aesthetics and high technology. LYS includes a 2-story commercial gallery with shops and 3 floors of offices. The remaining 6 floors are dedicated to 18 residential apartments with an exclusive outdoor pool on the top floor.

The impressive rooftop outdoor pool has been covered with Silvis wood-effect porcelain stoneware in Mahogany 20×120 cm, totaling 500 square meters.

Silvis

Collection

To cover the nearly 10,000 square meters of apartments and offices, the goal was to approach the beauty of marble, opting for Calacatta (in 60×120 and 15×15 cm).

In the gallery shops, 4,000 square meters of Cedar Stone in 60×120 cm were used for the floors, and for the walls, 1,000 square meters of Marfil in 30×60 cm were paired with 1,000 square meters of Travertino Silver in 30×60 cm.

Finally, the remaining 500 square meters of outdoor flooring were covered with Block in the color Grey in 90×90 cm. Thanks to its 2 cm thickness and special grip finish, the collection offers exceptional durability and resistance for outdoor spaces, both public and private.

Very Peri: the color of 2022!

For more than 23 years, the Pantone Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in various sectors including fashion, interior design, industrial design, product packaging and graphic design.

In 2022, Pantone gives us a new color with intense shades of the Periwinkle color with purple and red undertones. The fascinating PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri places us in front of a new light and helps us to embrace the creative spirit that animates in each of us, opening us to countless possibilities.

Who has chosen this color, explains the concept behind this choice:

If we are renovating the house and we want to use the Pantone 2022 Very Peri we must choose the right combinations, to make everything harmonious and elegant. Lovers of bright and pastel colors may have no problem matching the decorations inside the periwinkle room. Neutral and minimalist decorators, on the other hand, may react dubiously.

So, how to use this color?

Purple and blue convey calm and relaxation, so they are well suited for use in environments such as bedrooms. The idea is to color (with wallpaper or plaster) the wall behind the bed, declined in a soft and harmonious way.
The periwinkle color can transform a bathroom into a wellness sanctuary for relaxation (just like a spa). Based on the 2022 design trends, this is precisely the goal of many who want to renovate their homes in the near future.
It also happens that you want to give a touch of color to your kitchens and the island format perfectly matches this style. Abroad, the most chosen color is periwinkle because it gives the space an intense dose of color.
To avoid mistakes, it is important to compose a color palette that you can trust in the choice of furnishings, floors and coverings. Once you have identified the palette, you can indulge yourself with the combinations.

You can make the Pantone 2022 color the protagonist by accompanying it with neutral and classic shades: think for example of the elegant Tronçais wood-effect slats in the Dune shade or a more neutral color with a soft surface by Me_tra Frost.

               

 

It is also possible to combine other more intense and dark shades with Pantone 2022 such as the Dark color from the Ar_gent series or Graphite from the Block collection

              

 

For the more daring, Very Peri goes very well with some decorations from the Art by Sichenia line. They are intense colors but if combined with the right doses and with the correct furnishings, they can create unique and original environments.
