Caution Tile

Caution Tile tries to solve that problem that people may slip in public places because of the wet floor with colorless water on, with a kind of humidity-sensitive material which changes color when meeting water. Mixed with ceramics, the material makes the color of tile changeable, helping display the warning signal whenever it’s wet.
The colored Caution Tile, obviously different from the dry tiles around, and the caution mark on the wet tile, both warning people that something is wrong there and they are supposed to pay attention.
Visualizing the danger in silence, Caution Tile tries.
