Home News Emser Tile’s Borigni collection wins HD Award

Los Angeles—Emser Tile’s Borigni series won the flooring category of the 14th annual HD Product Awards, alongside co-winner, Hand Grade from Havwoods International. The award recognizes products based on myriad criteria, including design innovation, aesthetics and functionality in hospitality environments, cost/value, technical advancement and environmental responsibility. Nearly 300 products were submitted this year in 11 categories.

“Emser Tile aims to break the boundaries of what commercial design can accomplish,” said Barbara Haaksma, vice president of marketing, Emser Tile. “We are honored that Borigni is recognized for what its dynamic concrete-look and artistic effects enable designers to create in hospitality spaces.”

Merging function and form, Borigni 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. The product can be intermixed with three trending tile sizes—35 x 35, 18 x 35 and 12 x 24—for one-of-a-kind designs. The collection also allows designers to carry texture from the floor to the wall with raised diagonal accent tile, which invites a variety of diagonal, chevron and diamond patterning.
