This month, the Surface Design Show 2023 was back, an event that we were excited to be exhibiting at again after the success of the 2022 show for the business.

Yet again the show offered Marabese Ceramics' Specifications Team the chance to put on show exactly what we are all about as a business. The main objective was to engage with as many designers and architects as possible over the three days.

The team had handpicked material that they knew would catch the attention of any wandering design eye, from small format bricks made in Spain to the large Venetian terrazzo from leading Italian manufacturers, which was positioned in pride of place on the stand.

There seemed to be more of a buzz than the previous year’s show with a real buoyant atmosphere in the hall, it was hard not to be swept along in this. It was a show where colours like ‘Berry Red’ and ‘Teal Green’ really got tongues wagging. With different shapes and finishes, the application possibilities are numerous; something that was discussed time and time again with each visitor to the stand.

Along with the tile samples, the team brought a small binder library which allowed them to speak with and propose ranges for live projects, directly from the show. This has proven highly successful as designer after designer came in with requests for material.
