Mattonelle Margherita by Nathalie Du Pasquier
With its powerhouse collection of 27 graphics for square 20.5cm by 20.5cm tiles, and six patterns for 10.1cm by 20.5cm tiles, the Mattonelle Margherita tiles by Nathalie Du Pasquier has everything for anyone who wants some pattern in their spaces. With a luxuriously saturated palette of impactful colours, the designs are made to be combined in numerous creative ways for both clean minimalist spaces as well as expressive bold interiors. These impressive qualities were recognised recently by Interior Design Magazine as they awarded the Mattonelle Margherita collection Best of Year 2021 in the Tile + Stone Flooring category.
Mews By Barber & Osgerby
The inspiration of the Mews collection by Barber & Osgerby is evident in the names of the tile colours – Chalk, Fog, Pigeon, Lead, Ink and Soot, all elements that fondly relate to London streets and buildings. The city’s landscape, personality and history informed the collection of tiles in four sizes including two chevron shapes, and six colours which have 15 different tones to provide a sense of movement and depth to the surfaces.
Tex by Raw Edges
A brilliant concept by design studio Raw Edges to capture the various textures of yarn led them to create the Tex collection of tiles. The rhombus-shaped tiles are rich in tactility with three different embossed surfaces and are available in eight colour tones. Pre-made runners which feature a combination of colours are also available, and can be used on walls as well as floors.
Chymia by Laboratorio Avallone
Chymia is borne from the Milan-based studio of Laboratorio Avallone and their practice of applied arts, especially in the field of painting and sculpture. They have created a range of 10cm by 10cm tiles that carry various decorations created by artistic techniques such as handpainting, stamping, printing, and embossing, for a series of 11 surface and textural patterns available in both black and white. The tiles are meant to be applied to the user’s own design preference and can be mixed randomly for unexpected fresh results!
Lane by Barber & Osgerby
Lane is the other collection of Barber & Osgerby inspired by the historical yet dynamic city of London. The 7.9cm by 16cm size rectangular tiles bring versatility to the collection of smoky as well as vibrant hues which come in 12 pre-mixed selections. Base has five tonal colour palettes, Mono features only dark and light tiles, while Poly introduces a contrast of colour into the tonal palettes.
Primavera by Barber & Osgerby
Barber & Osgerby designed the Primavera collection to approximate the qualities of a natural material in its simplicity and rawness, but with colour and delicate coloured specks thrown in to give the tiles a modern and fresh look. The unglazed porcelain stoneware tiles are available in four sizes and five coloured tints.
