This interior tile represents “Origami”, the Japanese traditional paper craft. The beauty of the curve and the deep glaze are combined to create an expressive design. Thanks to the combination of colors and arrows’ direction, you can enjoy various designs.
This tile is designed based on the traditional Japanese pattern called Seigaiha (blue ocean waves). The edgy and rugged side of the pattern, gives it a modern feel. Depending on how you arrange it, you can create a variety of patterns and enjoy them in different ways.
This tile represents a braided rope made by using the casting technique. It allows us to create a shape and texture conveying the sophisticated sense of Japanese traditions.
A unique design in which different materials can be seen through the camera’s aperture hole. Pairing it with the same size hexagon flat tiles creates a flowery wall look.
This Piramide tile has been made by using the 3D lantern tiles to which is added an openwork design. The combination of Piramide 3D and Piramide 2D with an openwork pattern creates an uplifting wall surface.
