Identity

Target offers a wide range of products and services dedicated to the design of ceramic surfaces, collections that represent a flexible combination between industry and craftsmanship in order to ease the development of new technical and creative solutions.

THE ITALIAN STYLE
BEYOND THE CONVETIONAL

We are the seditious of beauty : different, original, creative.
This is the reason why we see things differently and consider ourselves the atelier of ceramics.

A vision reflected in all our projects: customizable, handcrafted and unique wall, floor and interior design ceramic solutions.

Becoming the Italian reference point for ceramic surfaces to us means investing in research and in the creation of a synergistic system of strategies, processes, advanced technology and people.

TRADITION

Target was established in that territory that is the excellence of ceramics in the world, where we became familiar with the know-how, the knowledge of materials, techniques and technologies. A set of elements that have made us proud heirs of the craftsmanship we come from. A pride that has now evolved into being a reference point both for the ceramic industry and the “made in Italy”.

DESIGN

Target supports a long-lasting design concept, conceived as a new aesthetic form combining art, beauty and practicality. A concept that recounts cultures, people and places by relating them with colors, textures and materials re-proposed in a contemporary key.

COOPERATION

SUSTAINABILITY

Plants

Our top-notch firing and decorating plants allow us to daily produce 500 sq.m. of handcrafted or digitally decorated tiles and slabs.

Firing system

With a temperature of minimum 830° celsius, our firing system gives the decorated surfaces a very high resistance to shocks, scratches, wear, heat and chemicals.
The process also allows the colors to resist the action of UV rays for a long time, while maintaining the aesthetic characteristics both indoors and outdoors.

Processing

We are able to bevel and glaze the edges of our 6 mm slabs. This process allows to hide the color of the support thus solving any aesthetic problems.
The refinement and peculiarity of our process is emphasized especially in the coverings for furnishings, furnishing objects and accessories.

Staff

Our in-house staff of designers, artists and architects creates collections that must first of all be original. Like their creativity.

Collections

The FuoriFormato collections are also ideal for being applied on furniture and some designs can be resized upon request. We have also created a contemporary style furniture line with the FuoriFormato products.

Custom tailoring

Our internal division CO: lab offers the possibility to design, draw, cut and process large slabs and tiles in an artisanal or semi-artisanal way, thus allowing the customization of environments and furnishings with a custom-fitted ceramic product, made with digital, embossed and three-dimensional handcrafted decorations.
