Rich History / Wall and floor tiles concept

Rich History

Discipline: Interior Architecture

Rich History

Discipline: Interior Architecture

A timelessly classic yet modern concept for walls and floors with both a historical and an artistic slant in various gold and mother of pearl nuances – an interplay of different surfaces and decorations that only comes into its own with the incidence of light. The eye is drawn to the graphically abstract, three-dimensional reliefs, as well as a floral trompe d’oeil as decorative element. The floral design does not emerge as a recognizable structure. The porcelain stoneware tile with its innovative used-look, metal glaze is designed to be divisible either lengthwise or crosswise, thus offering another design concept for the wall and floor.
