The setting “invites us to pause and listen to the walls in the space, and get lost in the curves and lines of its perfect geometry.” Imbued by ancient Roman and Greek architecture, “the inspiration behind the booth design is the porcelain material itself and the desire to capture the different hints it can offer. The Arcobaleno, Topazio and Saint Tropez Collections illustrate the classic nobility, the sophistication, the balance and the serenity that this space radiates.”
The central space of the booth features polychromatic spheres, cylinders and prisms, all evocatively interpreting the classic architectural order. Mirrors and curtains reinforce the ethereal atmosphere with an unreal and fantastic touch that brings visitors into a timeless space.

To Masquespacio, the ceramic material is an opportunity to create decorative elements. In the words of Ana Milena Hernández, founder and creative director of the design studio, “we often forget that ceramic is so versatile that it can go beyond its traditional use in floors and walls. The ceramic material has been used to create small sculptural and furniture pieces that are integrated into the space.”
The perspective of this project entailed a challenge both for the design studio and Roca Tile as a manufacturer, as it is far from the conventional functionality sought in this exhibition, trying to transform the booth into an artistic and aesthetic space.
The Arcobaleno collection is an extremely complex marble with an ethereal, almost celestial aesthetic where whites and creams mix with emerald, amaranth and coral veins. This new stone, unique in the design of each piece, creates exceptional combinations for each design space. Colors converge through Roca’s exclusive manufacturing process that combines glazes, reliefs and textures to captivate the senses.
