British Ceramic Tile and Made in Britain Celebrate British Design and Manufacture at CDW

15/05/2018 | Category: News

Made in Britain member British Ceramic Tile will be creating an exhibition with a difference at Clerkenwell Design Week – CDW – from 22nd-24th May, celebrating the best of UK design and manufacture in association with the team from Made in Britain.

One of the UK’s most prominent manufacturers to design and make products here in Britain, the company is incredibly proud of its longstanding heritage and its in-house design credentials, and will be marking the occasion through a range of activities that reflect the best of British.

During three days packed full of guest talks and partner collaborations with fellow Made in Britain members, the company has secured other like-minded, big-name brands from across the kitchen, bathroom and interior design industries to come along and showcase their products and services to visitors, offering a true vision of exceptional British design. The Made in Britain partners include March & May, Roman and The Whitebirk Sink Company. This is a great example of our members collaborating together to showcase British-made products.

British Ceramic Tile will also be using CDW as an opportunity to showcase some of the latest products to arrive in the specification market. These include Rock, a porcelain tile influenced by natural stone, available in a polished, hammered or matt finish and Seagrass, a ceramic tile created using a combination of the latest technologies in inkjet and rotocolour printing.

Liam Poole, head of specification marketing at British Ceramic Tile, said:
 
“For us, CDW is the perfect opportunity to celebrate our obsession with British design and manufacture. We want to communicate to the A&D community that our products are designed and made here in the UK, using locally sourced materials and a highly skilled workforce. Our manufacturing heritage is a real selling point for us, and a key consideration for our customers who want to buy British. We’ll be joined during CDW by the Made in Britain team and other outstanding British manufacturers who want to celebrate with us. We’ve even created our very own craft beer especially for the occasion, so stop by to raise a glass with us.”
