Exploring the versatility of porcelain tiles in interior design
Next week at Focus/21, Domus will showcase an alternative use of porcelain tiles and slabs with an exciting collaboration with bespoke furniture designer Nico Villeneuve.
By combining an ethos of simplicity and contemporary design with premium materials and exemplary craftsmanship, the collaboration has produced a collection of exceptional one-off pieces for high-end interior schemes.
Visit the Domus + NICO stand in person to explore new dining, coffee and console tables, and a wall panel with a gorgeous tessellating pattern.

Domus invited NICO to create designs using porcelain tiles and lightweight slabs for different table types. Unveiling at Focus ‘21 is the new FRAME range — a collection of dining, coffee and console tables with tiles inset in anodised bronze steel frames.
Also on display is SQUARE-WAVE, a new tessellated wall panel that is a contemporary twist on a classic chequerboard design. The panel uses contrasting tiles that have been water-jet cut into a bespoke pattern, exemplifying the design possibilities available to architects and interior designers wanting unique features in their projects.
