SPAZIOFMGPERL'ARCHITETTURA-History

SPAZIOFMGPERL’ARCHITETTURA is FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti and Iris Ceramica's architecture and interior design gallery. A place to “exhibit and freely communicate architecture” presented by Luca Molinari, a place for architects and architecture and interior design students and fans to get together and discuss their ideas. A place combining the expressive power of a gallery with the discrete dynamism of an atelier of ideas and materials, projects and works, testifying to Iris Ceramica's profound link and true dedication to the world it serves. Always aware of the importance of protecting the environment, Iris Ceramica S.p.A. companies Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti were the first Italian companies to obtain certification from ANAB (Italy’s National Association for Bioecological Architecture) for products conforming to international building biology standards. The entire production process has also obtained ISO 9001 quality certification, ISO 14001 environmental certification and certification of conformity to EMAS community regulations in the areas of Quality and Environment. Iris Ceramica and FMG materials conform to the LEED protocol requirements of the Green Building Council for sustainability. Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti, as divisions of Iris Ceramica S.p.A., are standing members of the Green Building Council of Italy. FMG products are also certified as conforming to the HQE® protocol (with a fiche de déclaration published at www.inies.fr) for their environmental and sanitary properties. All this because founder and President Romano Minozzi considers the equation ECOLOGY = ECONOMY more valid than ever, in the ongoing pursuit of Quality, defined above all as quality of life for all. The proof lies in the most recent innovation Iris Ceramica has launched on the market: ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™. This productive method is based on application of micrometric particles of titanium dioxide which make use of the photocatalysis process to create ceramic tiles with concrete antipollutant and antibacterial qualities, making an effective contribution to improvement of quality of life. With ACTIVE, “ceramic” exceeds itself: no longer an inert material but an eco-active material.
