TORONTO – Blanco Canada is proud to announce the unveiling of its bold and interactive concept space designed specifically for the 2019 Interior Design Show (IDS) to launch its new SILGRANIT colour, Concrete Gray. The highly conceptual exhibit will allow attendees to learn about and experience this new colour in a fresh, explorative, and exciting way.
Blanco partnered with Arc & Co Design Collective to create a full brand experience between two exhibit spaces: booths 1444 and 1448. The Concrete Gray installation will share the concept of a “graceful balance” between raw material and engineered refinement. Impactful in its presence, the space will feature weighty, monolithic concrete boulders, cradled in clear acrylic and thin metal rods - instilling a sense of wonder and transcending the common understanding of gravity’s force over weight. The structure is strong and durable, reflective of the longevity, and tenacity of the Blanco brand. It is designed to fully evoke Concrete Gray not only as a colour, but also as an impressive granite composite material.
“In its essence, Blanco is a brand filled with graceful balance between its dualities. It is refined, but natural. It is strong, but gentle. The concept space we have designed embodies this very idea. From its cantilevered form, to the juxtaposing textures and materials, this space truly epitomizes Blanco and SILGRANIT as an experience,” says Robert Joel Cortez, Creative Director / Partner at Arc & Co.
The Interior Design Show in Toronto is an experiential four-day weekend event happening from Jan. 17th – 20th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre that brings people together to celebrate the power of design.
