The project

  • Location Neuchatel - Switzerland
  • Studio Architecture & Retail Rites SA

The Maladiere Centre is a new shopping centre in Neuchatel, Switzerland and is part of a single structure 198 m in length and 115 m wide consisting of 6 floors (3 of which underground) that host a football stadium, shops and recreational facilities.

Cotto D’Este material was chosen because its technical and aesthetic qualities enable it to satisfy the particular needs of a shopping centre of this type. The aesthetics of Cotto D’Este marry perfectly with the  modern architectural vision of the building and its elegant shops.

Product used

The particular ease of working with Cotto D’Este tiles also made it possible to create some very ambitious curved cuts, installing them with minimal grout lines and therefore satisfying the aesthetic requirements of this major project. At the same time, the elevated resistance of the triple-pressed 14 mm-thick material makes it possible to move large loads along the corridors of the shopping mall. Thanks to its high level of stain resistance (class 5, the best according to the ISO 10545-14 standard) and chemical resistance (ISO 10545-13), Cotto D’Este facilitates the daily maintenance of large, highly-trafficked floors like those of the shopping centre.

Shipping and logistics are still operational.

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.
