AMBIENTE PREVIEW: Porcel
Discover what exciting new ranges and extensions Porcel will unveil at Ambiente 2016, which takes place February 12-16, 2016
Porcel will have plenty of new offerings on its huge stand in Hall 4.1.
This season Porcel will bring to Ambiente three new collections with full sets that include dinner, tea and coffee pieces - Imperio and Vivian in gold and Allegro in silver.
One of the first designs developed by Porcel, dating back to 1986, Imperio Gold (pictured) uses an innovative technique, laying gold on to an embossed texture, adding delicate details to the design and luxury.
Presenting a new porcelain base, with white textured pieces, Vivian is a delicate porcelain set, with just the right amount of gold. To complement the gold and texture, Porcel offers a selection of pieces with coloured glaze, in rose and mint, for fun mixing and matching.
For silver connoisseurs, modern line Allegro boasts a geometric inspiration translated into thin platinum lines. Porcel will also showcase a curated collection of complements and decorative pieces, Exclusive Premium Gold. Entirely handpainted, this luxury-inspired collection celebrates gold, offering delicate items that bring the luxury and refinement of high quality porcelain to any setting.
