"Wow" factor from AIA Convention

By John Kirchner May 14, 2011

While the American Institute of Architects convention in New Orleans is filled with fascinating items to see and discuss, a lot of it is geared toward a professional audience. The show isn’t as consumer-oriented as some others that Marvin attends.

However, our trend-spotter Maura Williams did find this very cool tile from an Italian company called FAP Ceramiche.

In this photo, the wallcovering in the glassed-in shower area is replicated by the tile around the sink. It looks seamless and is an amazing demonstration of the kinds of complex designs that are now possible with computer technology married to production.
