Amidst heavy downpour on June 24, dozens of experts and enthusiasts in architecture and design gathered at Viglacera’s booth at the VietBuild Exhibition in Saigon’s District 12.
Centered on the theme “Touch The Future,” the networking event was an opportunity to connect and exchange ideas on the different trends in the field, new design technologies, and how the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have reshaped the industry as a whole.
On display at the 360-sqm exhibition booth are some of Viglacera’s world-class products — from the granite and porcelain tiles to touchless smart toilets and a matte-glazed black bathtub — all exhibiting elegance and quality, and future-proof features.
Leading the green tech era
Viglacera has, for 48 years, pioneered building materials that suit Vietnamese homes’ needs and living habits while ensuring they get quality products that can last for generations. All of the products are designed and manufactured thoughtfully, with respect to the Vietnamese lifestyle and the environment, through green technologies.
“We are a pioneer in Vietnam’s construction and building material supply,” said Mr. Phung Viet Quang, general director of Viglacera Ceramic Tiles. “But we have also been a market leader ever since, putting sustainability at the center of our production.”
From sustainable production lines are products that do not just bear world-class quality, but are 100% natural, 100% recyclable, and near-zero porosity. Moreover, with fewer raw materials, products such as porcelain tiles are less susceptible to material erosion, have reduced CO2 emissions, and are optimized for energy consumption.
“Our products give designers, architects, and other industry professionals the confidence that their aesthetically-appealing design decisions are equally appealing to the environment,” he said.
Building a solid foundation
Viglacera products do not just furnish Vietnamese homes; they are bound to become a solid foundation for Vietnam’s quest for a more sustainable future — without compromising the products' physical allure and quality.
Mr. Quang added that there are no limits to architectural designs and innovative building materials Vietnam can produce and export worldwide. The choices, he said, are no longer limited by technology even.
Viglacera has partnered with some of the world’s most renowned experts in design technology — Sacmi, Altadia, Colorobbia, System Ceramics, and Von Ardenne, among others — to help create modern homes for Vietnamese families and beyond.
Given the changes brought about by new architectural trends and climate change, Viglacera continues to innovate materials that adapt to the times. The application and development of green building materials have become imperative in building a green real estate market.
Viglacera’s sanitarywares, granite and ceramic tiles, terracotta products, building, energy-saving glass, and its autoclaved aerated concrete are tangible emblems of the brand’s commitment to revolutionizing the architecture and design industries in sustainable ways.
The future is here
Imagine your doors, floors, walls, bathrooms, and kitchens made from porcelain panels, looking ultra-sophisticated, blurring the lines between imagination and reality.
With exclusive technology from Italy, Viglacera is the first manufacturer in Vietnam to offer large-sized porcelain panels. Viglacera has made a new stride ahead as a pioneer in applying this innovative technology, as well as the ethos of interest in developing its connection with partners.
Believing that “a piece of the possibilities lies in the size of the product,” Viglacera’s new large-sized porcelain panels offer a new format to serve architectural needs, from homes to commercial buildings.
The panels can be as large as 80x320 and 160x320, with thicknesses ranging from 6mm to 20mm.
The large and slim porcelain tiles and slabs are perfect for providing floor-to-ceiling elegant looks to restaurants, spa centers, shops, offices, and modern homes. They are designed to blend vertical and horizontal lines in new ways, offering complete visual continuity.
The new advances in technologies in sanitaryware and tiles allow never-before-seen solutions for the home and the building materials industry. Viglacera utilizes the market's most advanced technologies, yielding exceptional results and inspired products.
“And these are all proudly made in Vietnam,” concluded Mr. Quang.
