Environmental concerns were the topic of the day at RocaConcepts

The environment was the main focus at RocaConcepts as the showroom highlighted the various sustainable aspects of its products. Visitors were privy to impressive facts and figures when it came to how products from RocaConcepts were doing their bit in conserving the environment.


Mosaic art went big and bold at SICIS

Mosaic tiles as wall art was what SICIS drove home at its showroom. On the ground floor, intricately put together glass murals were boldly swept across walls to great effect. Upstairs, glass pixel murals offered alternatives that were more restrained but no less sublime.


Varenna kitchens at the ViA Poliform/Varenna showroom did not disappoint


The scene was elegant and understated at Poliform

It perfectly exemplified why Poliform is one of the fastest growing design brands in the world right now. Alongside the furniture, Varenna kitchens appealed to the senses in every way.

Bright decals welcomed visitors to the TOTO showroom


Visitors got to experience TOTO’s products firsthand

The sweeping TOTO showroom, while most known for its sanitary ware, surprised visitors with its TOTO kitchen range.
