Decocer supplies custom-made tiles to Spanish tavern

Decocer supplies custom-made olive tiles to bring colour and personality to an authentic Spanish tavern in Valencia. 

Situated in the historic quarter of Castellón, a small Valencian town on the Mediterranean, is a surprisingly modern and lively space. It is a daring, high-quality tavern that fuses street cuisine with the best local ingredients.

The bar, Trenkaclosques, takes its name from a local expression meaning jigsaw puzzle. Inside the modern venue, a wall featuring olive-green ceramic tiles by Decocer covers a large part of the restaurant, giving it a touch of liveliness and personality.

This space is much more than just a place to eat; it is an experience that combines the contemporary with the traditional, fusing flavours and cultures. The design of the restaurant and its cuisine are a jigsaw puzzle, and in the end all the pieces fit together in an innovative way. The atmosphere is relaxed, youthful and full of vitality. The gastronomic offer is exceptional, standing out for its excellence in every dish. 

The interior layout of the restaurant, created by Armonic Consultores, is a single room that accommodates both high and low tables, as well as a bar and a cocktail bar, creating a welcoming and versatile atmosphere. The bar and the work area, each with a tiled backdrop, are strategically arranged and open to the diners, inviting them to observe and participate in the culinary process.

The visible façade of the small tavern has been uniquely decorated with small-format tiles designed and custom-made by Decocer, giving the space a strong personality. These glazed pieces, measuring 7.5 X 30cm, have an irregular shape and feature a subtle relief on their surfaces. Their intense olive-green tone is visually striking and noticeable from the outside.

The olive-green shade of the delicate tiles is known for its earthy appearance, with a subtle nuance that combines shades of green, yellow, beige and brown. As the ceramic used has a very high intensity glazed finish, it reflects light exceptionally well throughout the restaurant. This feature further enhances the establishment's ambiance, creating a luminous effect that amplifies the feeling of spaciousness and brightness in every corner.

To add a distinctive style and unique geometric movement, the tiles were laid vertically using the so-called ‘three-quarter brick’ format.

In the back bar of the cocktail area, designers utilised a hexagonal 17.5 x 20cm beige-coloured Decocer porcelain tile, enhanced with a camel-coloured graphic to generate harmonious geometric patterns. These patterns echo a jigsaw puzzle, symbolising the restaurant's unique philosophy.

Decocer designs and makes small-size ceramics, developed to meet the specific needs of manufacturers, large distributors, architects and interior designers around the world. 

The ceramic firm's objective is to "offer customised tiles to its customers instead of looking for customers for its tiles". Thus, it is recognised as a strategic partner that works closely with its customers, customizing and manufacturing pieces à la carte and exclusively for them. It has a wide variety of sizes, geometries and finishes, which position it as an international benchmark.

With a presence in international markets, approximately three-quarters of Decocer's sales are worldwide. Its main markets include the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and Spain.
