Located in the tourist village of Csopak, in Hungary, Buborék Csopak offers a cosy place for cyclists and nature walk enthusiasts to stay all year round, accompanied by various other services (BED-BIKE-BREAD). The building was completely refurbished in June 2022 to create a location that houses not only a bakery, but also a bike shop and a hotel. The upper floor has been repurposed to provide a comfortable place where travellers can stay the night and recharge their batteries (in more ways than one!).
What architects Eszter Bertóty and Edit Móder were aiming for was to create a space that was both functional and inviting, featuring a clean contemporary design born from a fusion of Scandinavian and Mediterranean moods.
Bathed in neutral tones, the interiors are furnished with modern furniture with natural materials predominating throughout. Inside the building then, the bakery's characteristic counter, the fireplace, and the bathrooms walls are all tiled with Ceramica Fondovalle porcelain stoneware from the Res Art collection, in the Talc, Pottery and Mud shades.

These alternating warm shades on the walls are not only appealing to the eye but also inviting to the touch thanks to their glossy relief texture. This innovative collection recreates the effect of hand-worked, trowel-applied resin with original results. The intensity and warmth of a simple, yet artistically rich, material is captured to perfect effect in this design-led offering for projects with high impact visuals.
The natural beauty of the centrally positioned fireplace surround, in particular, and the uniquely shaped bakery counter create a sense of harmony, making the room even more welcoming once inside.
All this is also originates directly from the decision to use these unique 5 cm x 30 cm size wall tiles – an original style choice that has added character and expression throughout the building.

Scheiblhofer THE RESORT
Located at Andau (Austria), the modern Scheiblhofer THE RESORT offers its customers exclusive wellbeing experiences, family plans and fine wining and dining focused on regional products.
The resort, designed by famous architect Arkan Zeytinoglu, embodies the concepts and values of sustainable architecture, protection of the natural environment and energy saving. In fact, the design includes the creation of a garden – where the fruit, vegetables and herbs grown are then used in the kitchen – and a “wine trail” to create continuity between the hotel and the environment.Portland

Fluid lines and attractive designs: the luxury motorhomes of the Belgian STX brand exude a refined mix of elegance and flair. Distinctive for their sporty and dynamic appeal, the interiors of STX vehicles are what really captivate travellers. Inspired by exclusive yachts, every item of decor in these mobile homes has a bright and welcoming Scandinavian feel that will make you feel right at home, wherever you may be.
The strong contrast between the robustness of the exterior and the delicacy of the interiors makes these vehicles authentic luxury homes on wheels, their living spaces filled with leather, carbon fibre, select woods and sumptuous high-end fabrics.
In such an innovative designer setting, Ceramica Fondovalle was brought in to add a touch of glamour to the kitchen area and bathrooms of various STX motorhomes.
The common denominator of this partnership, shared by the various types of vehicles, is the use of marble-effect porcelain stoneware from the Infinito 2.0 collection, applied in various sizes and colours according to the style of the motorhome. In fact, the marble-effect products of the Infinito 2.0 collection boast different textures, criss-crossed by veins of different widths which showcase their natural and precious appearance.Infinito 2.0
