Cristina Celestino, Plumage. A mosaic collection that draws inspiration from nature and the feathers of a bird. Available in a multitude of sizes and colours, the tiles – individual featherlike creations – are crafted from ceramic and porcelain.


Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Rombini. A geometric collection that is claimed as “ceramics vibration”, Rombini presents blendable scheme of tiles, mosaic and relief elements in the Bouroullec’s signature palette. Two design variations, Uni and Light, give stylistic liberty – the former uniform in colour, the latter underlining diamond shapes with contrasting lines.


Barber & Osgerby, Puzzle. Designed by Brit design duo Barber & Osgerby and launched at Salone del Mobile, Puzzle offers geometric forms in textured off-white, blue and black hues, offering dynamic arrangements not unlike the spurs and troughs of a jigsaw puzzle.


Levi Fignar, Tre. A magnetic arrangement of three dimensional, angular tiles that allow for gradiated steps and playful configurations. Conceived by designer Levi Fignar of Next Ship for London Design Festival, and realised by Kaza concrete, the collection has taken off into a stunning commercial collection for all to enjoy.


Konstantin Grcic, Numi. Designed by Konstantin Grcic, this collection of square tiles is described as a study of colours, materials and shapes in porcelain. Each is available either in solid matte or with one of two partial emboss patterns, giving dynamism to arrangements and allowing for smaller mosaic-like patterns within arrangements.
