Lale / Ceramic Tile


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

‘Lale’ is the Turkish word for ‘tulip’. It is a ceramic tile designed with the intention to be as modular as it is esthetic. Tulip is an icon that has been widely used as part of the Turkish culture. Yet, an exciting use of that icon was missing. Therefore it was time for me to make this modern rendition of the icon, which better fits our era. Tulip came out after zealously playing with geometry to find the most modular form and then optimizing the results for the restrictions of ceramic production.
