INAX has a long, rich history based in Japanese ceramic craftsmanship and expertise. Founded after producing the terracotta with Frank Lloyd Wright for the famous Imperial Hotel, Tokyo in 1924, INAX is recognised for its innovative range of interior and exterior architectural ceramics that embody superb manufacturing and leading designs by traditional artisans.
The quality of the production of INAX Japanese ceramics is incredibly high. Their manufacturing processes enable a level of precision and consistency, while also delivering the beautiful natural qualities for which Japanese ceramics are renowned. This is a result of the INAX factories’ experience working with the variables of temperature and timing that affect the chemical reactions that ultimately determine the result. Their ceramics are baked for much longer than traditional tiles, creating a uniquely hard-wearing and durable product.
All INAX Japanese ceramics are of a very high quality and are recognised for their low maintenance requirement. Sugie Series is also classified as a Nano-hydrophilic ceramic. Nano-hydrophile is INAX’s criteria that indicates the level of stain resistance.
