The 2024 Best Booth Awards winners at Coverings are announced! This program recognizes outstanding exhibitor booths at Coverings, North America’s leading event for the ceramic tile and natural stone industry, with this year’s winners including three Best in Show displays and awards for Best ConceptBest Display, and Best Green Booth.

Best in Show

Roca/Lamosa USA received Best in Show for a captivating fusion of architectural trends, highlighting the seamless integration of their diverse product collections, including the notable Kronos and Suit Abbey collections. The inspiration behind Roca/Lamosa USA’s display stems from the exquisite application of azulejo in Portugal’s building facades and the immense potential inherent in small formats when paired with large-scale formats.

The design of the booth’s facade, marked by the company’s elegant wall tiles and the grandeur of their XL Slabs is the epitome of contemporary design. Visiting attendees were particularly impressed by Patagonia, an XL porcelain Slab of 48 by 98 inches in matte finish made with Digital Decoration and Glazing (DDG) and Bar Tile Nuuk.

Another Best in Show award was given to SICIS, The Art Mosaic Factory for its wide range of mosaic offerings that paint a spectrum of design possibilities. The heart of SICIS’s exhibit is simplicity, allowing the artistry of the glass to speak for itself and inviting boothgoers to reimagine the boundaries of design.

Attendees passing through SICIS’s display were mesmerized by the Gem & OniGem and Vetrite Art Glass Panel collections. Particularly noteworthy were two standouts from the OniGem collection: Ocean and Petroleum, displayed in large format panels that comprised the booth’s main feature wall and adjacent reception desk.

Peronda Group also took home a Best in Show award. Spanish design studio Summumstudio collaborated with Peronda to develop its award-winning booth themed around the ancient alchemic beliefs of transforming basic, natural elements into something more valuable, as they do with the new ceramic collection, Alchemy.

The thematic expression is reflected in the Peronda Group’s booth structure, comprised of real stones enclosed within iron caging. This structure served as the reference for Alchemy, which is showcased in a range of designs, each with its own unique charm and color assortment.

Best Display Booth

Lea Ceramiche received the Best Display Booth award.
