The word "TREND" relates to cutting-edge style, fashion or taste and indicates the prevailing direction in which change is headed. Trend is also the name of an Italian-based international group at the forefront of surface design. Since it’s founding in 2000, the Trend Group has earned a reputation as a forerunner in material design and composition, new product development and sustainable techniques, in glass mosaic and agglomerate surfaces. As one of the world’s leading producers of coloured glass tiles, Venetian enamel, gold leaf tesserae and agglomerate slab, the Trend Group has demonstrated a unique ability to synthesise the essential principles of Italian tradition, with a dynamic creativity attuned to today’s interior designers, architects and artists.
The Group has embraced this challenge globally, fusing the nineteenth century alchemy of its Angelo Orsoni furnace in Venice, with the twenty-first century innovations of its state-of-the-art agglomerate manufacturing plant in Sebring, Florida. With production and assembly facilities on four continents and operations in more than fifty countries, Trend is currently distributing over 1.5 million square meters of glass mosaic tile and a million square metres of agglomerate each year.
The Trend Group has worked hard to ensure that the organisation’s commercial approach is shaped by a deep commitment to cultural vibrancy and environmental concerns. On the one hand, Trend actively supports the contemporary art world and funds the biannual Orsoni Prize for International Mosaic Art. On the other, the Group moved early and aggressively to reduce the ecological impact of its processes and products. As a result, production is now designed to consume fewer raw materials and energy resources, to recycle otherwise wasted materials, and to increase the natural durability of its products.
Trend mosaic tiles are available at Bathroom Design in Malta.
