Porcelanosa introduces the first KRION solid surface building in the U.S.
HOUSTON – Spanish kitchen and bath cabinetry manufacturer Porcelanosa opened a 3,000-square-foot showroom in Houston this week - its fourth location in Texas and 24th in the U.S. - covering the building  with a ventilated facade made from its patented Krion solid surface material.
 
Krion is a smooth-to-the-touch solid surface material with a resemblance to natural stone. Applicable for both exterior and interior applications due to its fire-proof, chemical-resistant qualities, . It's also flexible enough to be molded like plastic with no visible seams or grout joints while being 100% recyclable. Most recently, KRION was used to create the futuristic interiors in the Hotel Radisson Blu at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN. 
 
In addition to its unique exterior, the Houston showroom contains a wide selection of product samples that highlights the company's most popular vanities, fixtures, bathroom products, accessories and floor and wall tiles suitable for any design taste. The new showroom also has a product library with more than 1,000 references available for clients and customers to view onsite. 
 
"PORCELANOSA is excited to celebrate this company milestone and bring a fresh European look to its showrooms in the U.S.," says Santiago Manent, U.S. sales and marketing director. "The new Houston location will offer customers in the area the opportunity to engage with top interior design experts and consultants to ensure all customers receive a luxury experience and the best advice possible."
 
This year, PORCELANOSA also will relocate its U.S. headquarters to New York City's Madison Square Park, situated at the epicenter of the city's architecture and design community. The building, designed by the renowned Foster + Partners, will include a grand-scale showroom and is set to open in July.
