Iris: Luxury Italian tiles for your home

Housed in Italy and highly valued for its R&D, Iris Ceramica is a world leader in the production of glazed ceramic and glazed porcelain tiles for wall and floor coverings for residential, retail and industrial projects.

The 1970s were the development years for Iris but its creation dates back to 1961 — a time when the Italian Economic Miracle was in the prime of its life — when Romano Minozzi ventured into a ceramic business at the Reggio Emilia and Modena district.

The Italy ceramics logo is the official international symbol of made-in-Italy tiles, recognized by architects around the world. And with a wide range of items, Iris has been adding to the prestige of Italian-made coverings worldwide and is constantly demonstrating its commitment to the creation of ceramics with high technical and stylistic value, characterized by leading-edge design of an excellence.

Among the brand’s international projects are Shangri-La Hotel in China, St. Regis in Bangkok, Hilton Hotel in Estonia, Metropolitan Hotel in Tokyo, BMW Germany showrooms, Singapore Airport, National Theater in Italy, Builder Galley Commercial Center in Germany and the Commercial Center Coop in Milan, Italy.

Locally, the brand has been chosen by Conrad Hotel, Shangri-La Boracay, Shangri-La Mactan, Edsa Shangri-La, Manila Hotel and the Power Plant Mall Cinema.

Its creations are the outcome of research and development conducted in-house, a heritage of unique know-how that provides the basis for yet more unique materials. These are creations that combine groundbreaking technologies and the skill of the craft tradition, in absolute compliance with the strictest standards on the sustainability of both process and product.

The products have been certified compliant with the requirements of the Green Building Council’s LEED sustainability protocol. Iris Ceramica is a full member of the Green Building Council Italia.

This year, AllHome proudly houses the renowned brand and presents its seven exquisite collections: Balance, Flows, French Woods, Maiolica, My Wall, Palazzo and Slide.
