Cyberwall is a wall made with Active ceramic surfaces, measuring 300×150 cm. The surfaces with Active technology stand out for their antibacterial properties, which make it possible to eliminate pollutants and unpleasant odors. The drawings and graphic compositions on the wall are by Alessandro Melis, curator of the Italian Pavilion. Thanks to the Design Your Slabs project, which allows ceramic surfaces to be personalized with any image or illustration, the curator experimented with different techniques of representation.


The participation in the exhibition of the Italian Pavilion is another step in the important celebration that marks the history of Iris Ceramica. As a matter of fact, in 2021, Iris Ceramica, established in 1961 by Romano Minozzi, celebrates its sixtieth anniversary. These sixty years of continuous research and innovation in the field of ceramic surfaces have brought the company to the top of world production.
