Cotto d’Este’s head office has been completely restyled by the e45 firm. The offices in Via Emilia Romagna in Sassuolo – in the heart of the ceramic district – have been redesigned with a more contemporary look thanks to a project with a distinctly architectural style capable of dialoguing with the existing elements.
The e45 firm created a route that connects the main entrance areas, the various offices, the showroom and the warehouse with a seamless connection between inside and outside, lending the project elegance and prestige. The creation of partitions, used as wings, creates a succession of perspectives and light and shadow effects, enlivening an area that is large and understated at the same time.
The flooring in the main entrance was made with Stonequartz – in its Oslo Fiammata 20mm version –, a 60x120cm staggered layout with 5x60cm inserts in the Artic colour, on the same collection, which lend a regular movement to the horizontal surfaces. In order to create a seamless design, 20mm Oslo Fiammata was also used for the floor that connects the offices with the showroom and the warehouse.
Finally, Kerlite large-format ultra-thin ceramic slabs enabled a dialogue between the different architectural elements. For vertical coverings, Kerlite Metal in the Iron finish – which gave the spaces a very unusual metal effect – was used, along with the matt and textured Kerlite Cluny – Champagne Layé, whose peculiarities and chromatic appearance are enhanced by the grazing light of the sun.
Italy, as well as many other countries around the world, is engaged in an aggressive battle against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
In order to keep the number of infections to a minimum, the Italian government has declared the temporary and limited closure of many manufacturing industries.
Nevertheless, certain activities related to the supervision of continuous production plants, such as the ones used in ceramic tile manufacturing, together with the preparation and shipping of stock materials have been permitted.
Therefore our warehouses and shipment departments remain fully operational, in full respect of the recent regulations imposed by the relevant authorities. Our staff will therefore continue to prepare and load merchandise, observing all of the necessary health and safety precautions.
Thanks to the remote working technologies that have already been implemented, all other sales supporting activities as well as your commercial and administrative contacts remain available, as always, to handle your requests.
We therefore wish to inform you that even during this manufacturing standstill, it is still possible to place orders, consult stock availability, request information, and pick up goods from our warehouses.
