The convergence of such excellence has given rise to a new range that seamlessly combines high technology and tireless research, distinguishing features of Italian design. The collection will combine classic high-end Italian ceramic tradition with the rigorous signature design of the brand founded by the heir of the Lamborghini family.
The Bologna-based company Tonino Lamborghini S.p.A. was founded in 1981 by the eponymous president, heir of the famous Lamborghini dynasty, who for almost forty years has been translating his creative spirit and passion for design and mechanics into accessories, furniture finishings and hospitality projects that epitomise Italian luxury and elegance.
La Fabbrica S.p.A., founded in 1994 in Castel Bolognese (RA), is the Italcer Group company that will manage the production and commercialisation of the new Tonino Lamborghini Luxury Surfaces collection.
Ferruccio Lamborghini, CEO and VP of Tonino Lamborghini SPA commented: "The partnership with Italcer is further confirmation of our commitment to exporting the passion and spirit of Italian lifestyle throughout the world, in the form of unique and distinctive projects that combine the excellence of Italian design and workmanship. Furthermore, the know-how and production technology of La Fabbrica will enrich the Tonino Lamborghini HOME project in qualitative and aesthetic terms, which already includes furnishing, faucets and accessory collections for the home and office, for a luxury total living experience that is strongly inspired by our family heritage".
Graziano Verdi, Chief Executive Officer of Italcer also comments how: "The agreement is part of the strategy and vision of Italcer Group, focused on consolidating and simultaneously developing the leadership of Italian design in the ceramic sector, both in Italy and on foreign markets drawn to Italian style and quality. Luxury, Italian production and design, respect for the environment and innovation are some of the values we share and, through our subsidiary La Fabbrica, have enabled us to create a product that is one of a kind, as unique as the style of Tonino Lamborghini in the world".
The new Tonino Lamborghini Luxury Surfaces collection will satisfy market demand for the most modern and innovative sizes and will be presented in the first half of 2021. The commercial focus of our new collection will be an international clientèle, through selected stores and contract projects.
Furthermore, new surface collections will be offered to clients of the Tonino Lamborghini Hospitality project in Brazil, China and other international locations where the brand is currently developing real estate projects featuring bespoke living concepts with a strong personality, for an iconic living style characterised by Italian design.
Thanks to the creative project development capabilities and state-of-the-art techniques of La Fabbrica, the stylistic patterns of the brand, inspired by the very essence of Lamborghini DNA, will be reinterpreted through the use of original details and finishings, culminating in a range of high-end ceramic surfaces. The design and mechanical heritage of Tonino Lamborghini will harmoniously blend with the contemporaneity of the La Fabbrica product philosophy to satisfy the technical requirements of project developers and interior designers on the one hand, and the taste of end consumers on the other.
