Borigni from Emser Tile Named 14th Annual HD Awards Finalist

Heightened brushed concrete look celebrated for innovation and functionality

LOS ANGELES – Emser Tile is honored to announce its Borigni series has been selected as a 14th annual HD Awards finalist in the flooring category. The award, organized by Hospitality Design magazine, recognizes products based on a myriad of criteria, including design innovation, aesthetics and functionality in hospitality environments; cost/value; technical advancement; and environmental responsibility.

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 and will name winners to be announced at the annual HD Awards event, June 6 at Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York.

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 collection’s flexibility allows designers to install patterns across expansive floorways to create an artistic effect — patterns which can even transition from indoor to outdoor.

Explore Borigni, along with a range of trending collections, at Emser Tile’s HD Expo 2018 booth 5949 from May 2-4 in Las Vegas.
