Barber & Osgerby live and work in London and are therefore strongly influenced by the city. The Mews collection is inspired by the landscape, the history and the personality of the British capital, and by the huge variety of textures characterising its infrastructures, such as bricks, wooden floors and irregular geometrical patterns. The apparently random and intentionally inaccurate effect is due to the colour compositional freedom obtained by extensive research and several experimentations on colour and combinations. The collection consists of 6 base colours: chalk, fog, pigeon, lead, ink and soot, each of which contains a palette of 15 different shades. This wide colour range adds depth and movement to the tiled surface making it rich and remarkable. The production of Mews is industrially made in homogeneous porcelain stoneware with a coloured mass dough and it has been designed with both contemporary and traditional use in mind. The variety of neutral tones allows the tiles to be a focal point or a backdrop in any interior scheme.
SIA Award-winning riceLAB
riceLAB was developed to take our clients’ experience to new heights with many industry-first innovations to make the process of tile selection easy and convenient. Our intention was to change traditional mindsets toward tiles.
The experiential and experimental lab took its design cue from the aesthetics of design hotels. The distinctively different living concepts on each floor was sensitively planned to offer a systematic flow of various functions for a unique and efficient tile shopping experience. MATERIAL LAB and PROJECT LAB are equipped with interactive work stations; enabling tech-savvy visitors to visualise their tile choices under different types of illumination.
