MALACCA: Feruni Ceramiche, a leader in premium tiles in Malaysia, ends a successful year with a bang with the opening of a new retail store here.
The much-anticipated launch is a major milestone as Feruni delivers the world’s latest tile trends and a world-class shopping experience to the Unesco World Heritage site.
Spanning about 15,000sq ft across three levels within the thriving commercial hub of Kota Laksamana, the new landmark is their eighth retail store.
“This is an exciting moment for us as the new store in Malacca reflects our vision and mission as we expand our presence in Malaysia and also across Southeast Asia,” said Feruni Ceramiche Sdn Bhd managing director C.C. Ngei during the launch which was attended by delegates of Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International 2015.
“Customers can expect the latest and most innovative tile solutions in addition to world-class facilities.
“With an enhanced design coupled with full-fledged services, we have set a new benchmark, not only for the tiling industry in Malaysia, but also for our future retail stores,” he said.
Envisioned as an art gallery – with tiles displayed as exquisite works of art – the new store features a glass façade with a melange of grey cement, black metal elements and a glazed curtain wall.
From the outside, the retail store offers an unobstructed view into the interiors – a reflection of the company’s principles of integrity, honesty and transparency – which is dominated by a black and white palette complemented with grey accents and timber elements. Inside, a wide array of tile collections are highlighted on white exhibit panels.
The first floor has bathroom and kitchen displays that are created in collaboration with brand partners Roca and Signature Kitchen, respectively.
The second floor consists of the World Trend Gallery, a showcase of avant-garde tile collections from world-renowned designers.
Two new tile series, Marmo 3.0 and Feruni ActiveSurface antimicrobial tile, were also launched.
