Three new collections, Abstract, Biscuit and Paint-It, offer a modern take on mid-century style and design, with abstract designs, colours and 3D surfaces inspired by the Bauhuas and Avant Garde art movements.
New glazed porcelain collection Abstract celebrates pattern in a variety of forms, including Bauhaus and retro-inspired surface patterns such as overlapping shapes, checks, cane webbing and an irregular linear pattern, all with a distinct mid-century look and feel.
The overlaying of shapes and colours that make up the Sunset Décor patterns are inspired by the renowned abstract paintings of Bauhaus teacher László Moholy-Nagy. Abstract is available in six muted earthy tones which are applied to both the plain and patterned designs.
The plain tiles and four of the patterned options are available in a small format square shaped tile while two of the patterns are available in a brick shaped tile.
Biscuit is a slim brick-shaped ceramic wall tile which captures the simplicity of the Bauhaus aesthetic, with one plain surface and five different geometric, textured and 3D surface designs. The shapes and textures of Biscuit celebrate the clean, abstract, minimal forms of the Bauhaus, including ‘Strip’, ‘Stud’ and ‘Wave’ textures as well as ‘Dune’ and ‘Peak’ 3D shapes.
Biscuit is available in four soft, muted tones, pale pistachio, soft terracotta, warm slate grey and white, all in a matt finish. The different surface textures and 3D shapes available in each colour offer wide-ranging possibilities of texture and form on walls to create stunning features within any architectural space.
Texture and Form
Paint-It sees the natural look of wood grain applied to porcelain tiles in an experimental pastel coloured palette of blue, yellow, rose and green, as well as grey and black, all set against an off -white background. Paint-It transforms the Bauhaus’ iconic primary colour palette of red, yellow and blue to these softer, modern tones that make them more suitable for contemporary interiors.
Paint-It is available in three plank shape sizes, each showing different wood grain patterns. A rustic and cross-grain wood pattern on the smaller and larger tiles offer a heavier wood grain look while the medium sized tile offers a softer wood grain pattern with no heavy markings or ‘knots’.
