Esta Galleria Opens Its World-Class Tile Showroom Designed By Architect Conrad Onglao

Any home or office room begins with a blank slate, and Esta Galleria ensures to elevate the look and feel of your spaces in its barest state with its range of world-class, premium quality tiles.

 

Occupying 745 sq.m., Esta Galleria ensures the most fitting flooring for your space whether for the kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom, and beyond. Esta Galleria’s world-class showroom is designed by Architect Conrad Onglao, and is located at the third floor of Glorietta 3 in Makati City.

 

Manufactured in Foshan, one of the ceramic capitals in the world, Esta Galleria builds on tile-making traditions and utilizes modern technology to create dynamic tile ranges that are exported to 120 countries around the world.

Known for its strength and elegant finishes, Esta Galleria tiles are produced in 10 large manufacturing plants, which utilize the most advanced large-scale press machines and ink-jet printing technology from Italy and Spain. The premier tiles are also used in a number of high-profile real estate development projects.

Esta Galleria aims to be one of the most trusted brands in construction and the first choice among developers as they offer affordability and versatility in design—from dry granular, lappato, soft polishes and high-definition-ink jet printing. Occupying 745 sq.m., Esta Galleria ensures the most fitting flooring for your space whether for the kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom, and beyond.

“Esta Galleria is synonymous with quality, durability and excellence,” shares Gabby Katigbak, Esta Galleria General Manager. “Its selection is ever-expanding, ranging from the essentials to the unique and handmade.”

Choose from among its many materials including porcelain, cement, and stone, with a range that features wood designs. The porcelain tiles, in particular, are the most popular as they are more durable, offer lower water absorption, and are more resistant to acids and alkalines, ensuring that color balance is maintained.

 

The ceremonial toast was led by (from left): Ayala Land President and CEO, Bobby Dy; Chairman Zhong of Nenking Group; Ayala Corporation President and COO, Fernando Zobel de Ayala; Makati City Mayor Abigail Binay-Campos; Chairman Fok of New Zhong Yuan; Swiss Asia Investment Management Managing Director, Frankie Yau; Ayala Land SVP and Head of Commercial Business Group, Junie Jalandoni.

 

Esta Galleria tiles are also available in versatile colors such as white, cream, black, gray, and brown. They’re also one of the few brands that carry tiles as big as 1.2x2.4m. Its BIG+ series, the premium and distinguishing line of Esta Galleria, features Italian design elements, printed using eight-channel ink-jet technology. It boasts large-scale restoration of the natural texture of natural stone and spatial pattern, resulting in a distinguished design.

V-LIFE, on the other hand, uses high standard porcelain antique technology, which creates a surface that is soft and glossy. For this range, the shapes are unique, with the thickness of tiles measuring 7.5mm. The V-Life collection, which also includes the Loft Line, is extremely light and helps to define the exquisite.

 

Ayala Land President and CEO Bobby Dy writes his congratulatory message for Esta Galleria

 

For all ranges and collections, Esta Galleria ensures long years of wear as the tiles are built to withstand high foot traffic and pressure. Its big stone slabs are made using an 16,800-ton pressing machine, which is comparable to the normal pressing machine that shapes tiles at 4,200 tons and 7,800 tons. In addition, Esta Galleria tiles are sealed with Torrecid, the best ink and glaze produced in Spain.

Regardless of the size, style and material you need in your tiles, Esta Galleria gives you a range of options to help you build up!
