The #6Senses Stand by APE Grupo at Cevisama 2020, recently held in Valencia, Spain, awakened visitors’ senses to an avant-garde experience unlike any other. Collections at the stand were divided into six spaces, each representing a different sense, including the sixth sense of intuition, which links to the group’s “perfect mix” concept of ceramic collections combining in different ways to produce surprising results.
Visitors to the 350m² stand went on a journey that invigorated their sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing, while showcasing the versatility of their ceramics – from the most decorative, fashionable product to the most technical, specialised product. Music was carefully selected to complement tiles, appealing to guests’ hearing, and included classics harmonising with the Calcatta and Golden Black Marble collections.
Individuals wandered around among birds, plants and past an original painting by Juan Ripollés, a Castellón artist and sculptor, while viewing the exotic decoration of the Silk series. Special attention was applied to the sense of touch, where visitors could appreciate fine details such as the embossed textures of the Re-use or Naxos collections.
A fragrance of orange blossom, a symbol of the tile-producing area Castellón, along with notes of peach and vanilla, fragrantly scented the air at the stand. Visitors were even able to “taste” ceramics by enjoying a limited-edition selection of chocolates, named after the new product collection. This bold, one-of-a-kind stand sent visitors on a boundless exploration of possibilities available through APE Grupo’s ceramics.
