Last week Living Ceramics enjoyed a very special evening. We opened our showroom to more than 700 guests, introducing them to the new products that are going to be our key focus for 2020.

The event, held under the slogan THIS IS LIVING, began with an audiovisual reproduction showing the effort made by the company’s team at a personal level, with all the qualities that are demonstrated on a daily basis at Living Ceramics: effort, commitment, precision and the drive needed to get the job done. It was also highlighted that LIVING consists of more than just the team itself, but also everyone who is involved in the chain at some level, whether it be suppliers, customers, colleagues, etc. THIS IS LIVING.

All the projects that involved Living Ceramics for one of their main materials were able to participate in the award ceremony. The jury was made up of Iván Cabrera, an architect and the director of the school of architecture at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, the designers Víctor Carrasco, Kensaku Oshiro, Luca Pevere and Paolo Lucidi, and the architect Roger Riewe.

Among the finalists for the award in the unique Living Project category were the Valencian architects Rubén Muedra, with Casa Cruz; Antonio Altarriba, with Casa Alquería; and Homu Arquitectos, with Vivienda para un Escultor (Home for a Sculptor). Victor Saiz from Almacenes Femenías on the Balearic Islands was also selected as a finalist, as was Wobbe Kölking from Germany, at an international level.

The final winner was Homu Arquitectos, with their open-plan living space that featured Allure Light Grey in pride of place on the kitchen island and the bathtub, which were made entirely using this material.

We will publish more details about the finalists’ projects very soon. They are a source of inspiration that show how architecture and design can exert a positive influence on the quality of life.
