We are honored to announce that our Borigni series has been selected as a 14th annual HD Awards finalist in flooring

An accomplished panel of industry professionals — Karen Herold, founder, Studio K; Gulla Jónsdóttir, principal, Gulla Jónsdóttir Architecture + Design; and Barry Richards, principal and studio leader, Rockwell Group — selected finalists based on a myriad of criteria, including design innovation, aesthetics, and functionality in hospitality environments; cost/value; technical advancement; and environmental responsibility.

Merging function and form, Borigni lays the foundation for complementary design elements in hospitality environments, and features a heightened concrete look with slight color and texture variations achieved through high-definition printing. The series’ large format glazed porcelain tiles offer the aesthetic and durability of concrete, while outperforming the material in cost and ease of maintenance.

Supporting a traditional industrial aesthetic infused with modern appeal, Borigni breaks the boundaries of the brushed concrete look with customizable installation opportunities. Intermix three trending tile sizes – 35” x 35”, 18” x 35”, and 12” x 24” – for truly one-of-a-kind designs. Furthermore, carry texture from the floor to the wall with raised diagonal accent tile, which invites a variety of diagonal, chevron, and diamond patterning previously unseen in traditional concrete.

The flexibility of the series allows designers to install patterns across expansive floorways to create an artistic effect - patterns which can even transition from indoor to outdoor. Designed to contribute to LEED v4 certification, Borigni is inherently sustainable with zero off-gassing for improved indoor air quality and provides unparalleled durability with an expected lifespan of more than 50 years.
