Tile Talk
Bologna's Cersaie ceramics trade
fair, held every September, is one
of the biggest specialist events
on the European design calendar.
The 2017 show saw an overarching
trend for products in extra-large
tile formats (good news for
designers working on sizable
commercial spaces) while an array
of technically challenging finishes
proved how chameleon-like
ceramic can be. An industrial feel
was prevalent, with rusted-metal
and concrete finishes, such as
Grespania's Vulcano range, while
dramatically striated marble effects, as
seen on Azulejos Benadresa's Bienne
tile, were a common thread. Terrazzolook tiles were another recurring
theme, in line with the wider design
nostalgia for the 1980s.

GLOBAL
Colors of 2018
Paint companies and trend forecasters alike have
nominated their own colors of the year that sum
up the spirit of the moment. In 2018, that mood is
diverse. Multinational paint brand AkzoNobel's
choice was based on the need for security in an
uncertain world: Heart Wood is a comforting dusky
lilac. Benjamin Moore chose the opposite stance,
selecting a hue for its strength and confidence:
Caliente is a deep red, inspired in part by the
interiors of Eero Saarinen's restored iconic
1962 TWA Flight Center Hotel at New York,
New York, USA's John F. Kennedy International
Airport. Sherwin-Williams opted for a hue that's
both soothing and bold: Oceanside is "a collision
of rich blue with jewel-toned green, a color that is
both accessible and elusive." Pantone, meanwhile,
nominated Ultra Violet, "a dramatically provocative
and thoughtful purple shade," as its Color of
the Year 2018. "Ultra Violet communicates
originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that
points us toward the future," the company wrote
about the decision.

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA
The New Library
Korean credit card company Hyundai Card has opened a series
of themed creative spaces to create unique experiences for its
cardholders. Hyundai Card calls them libraries, but they include
retail and dining space, a member's club, and a learning environment,
aimed at offering an antidote to fast-paced digital lives. The latest,
which opened in April 2017, is food-themed. The Cooking Library
interiors were designed by London, England studio Blacksheep and
One O One Architects in Seoul.
They feature flooring made from
end-grain timber that's reminiscent
of a kitchen butcher's block, a
lab-like ingredients house where
visitors can experiment with flavor
combinations, and a glass-framed
restaurant on the roof.

Hail Up, Starbucks
Starbucks has roared into new
territory with the opening of
its first Jamaican outpost. The
interior of the 1,200-square-foot
(111-square-meter) Montego Bay
location has laid-back, beachshack-inspired vibes-the work
of Starbucks' in-house design
team. Local design elements
include pickled-wood vaulted
ceilings and louvered windows.
A mural by local artist Fiona Godfrey,
depicting a lion-a symbol of Rastafarian
culture-backed by Jamaica's Blue Mountain coffee plantations
dominates the space. Hand-painted signs by local artist
Sheridan Burgess say hello to coffee lovers with a "hail up"
and say goodbye with a "walk good."
