Asci was inspired by concrete&#8217;s original liquid state and how it moves as it&#8217;s being poured. His idea was to express that liquid-induced movement in a solid form while also designing single concrete tile that could in turn generate multiple patterns for residential and commercial uses.
The result is a three-dimensional tile that evokes movement in different ways, depending on which pattern it’s used in. The dynamic form creates visual illusions based on how the light hits it with the shadows also causing extra dimension and texture. As with all KAZA Concrete tiles, the collection comes in a multitude of colors to work

The <a href="https://www.fireclaytile.com/handpainted/agrarian/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Agrarian Collection</a>, which features eight graphic patterns, was inspired by the rich Northern California landscape of crop formations surrounding its factory. The geometric layouts can be seen from the sky or aerial photography and translate perfectly into modern tiles.
With eight patterns and three color motifs (warm, cool, and white) to choose from, the possibilities for layouts are endless. You can stick to one pattern in one color, or create a patchwork using every color if you choose. Every tile is painted by hand where they let the glaze pool as it’s applied from the tip of the bottle.

                                A few years ago, designer <a href="http://design-milk.com/friday-five-deborah-osburn-cle/" data-wpel-link="internal">Deborah Osburn</a>, of <a href="https://www.cletile.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">clé</a>, launched the <a href="http://design-milk.com/tiles-inspired-japanese-textile-dying-techniques/" data-wpel-link="internal">Watermark Collection</a> of handcrafted porcelain tiles that were inspired by Japanese textile dying techniques. Now, clé has introduced a new series that was designed by Deborah&#8217;s own son, <a href="https://www.cletile.com/pages/meet-the-artists-luca-osburn" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Luca Osburn</a>, called <a href="https://www.cletile.com/pages/meet-the-artists-luca-osburn" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Tides</a>. The ocean-inspired line seems like the perfect addition to the Watermark Collection, as Luca is an avid surfer. In addition to the new pattern, there are four new colors, which reflect his favorite Northern California surfing spots – the foggy grey <a href="https://www.cletile.com/collections/deborah-osburn/products/watermark-cronkhite-4x8-special-order?variant=&amp;variant=36238897542&amp;variant=36238897542" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Cronkhite</a> and the sun kissed ocean greens of <a href="https://www.cletile.com/collections/deborah-osburn/products/watermark-outer-kellys-cove-4x8-special-order?variant=&amp;variant=36239861446&amp;variant=36239861446" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Kelly&#8217;s Cove</a> and <a href="https://www.cletile.com/collections/deborah-osburn/products/watermark-jetty-4x8-special-order?variant=&amp;variant=36238274054&amp;variant=36238274054" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Jetty</a>.

                                Just launched at this year&#8217;s Cersaie, <a href="http://www.mutdesign.com/portfolio/nuc/" >NUC</a> is a new mosaic glass tile created by <a href="http://www.mutdesign.com/" >MUT Design</a> that plays with your perception. Designed for <a href="http://www.peronda.com/es" >Harmony by Peronda</a>, the tile design was inspired by the principles of Gestalt psychology, much like the infamous <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubin_vase" >Rubin vase/face</a>, in that it&#8217;s just a simple square tile, but when slightly rotated, an optical illusion emerges.
NUC-tile-MUT-Harmony-Peronda-2 By shifting the square tile, the grout spaces create a feeling of movement and even begin to look like fishing nets or mesh fabric. NUC, which means ‘knot’ in Catalan, comes in three colors with four different options for grout colors.

Barber & Osgerby Design New Tiles for Mutina

                                <a href="http://barberosgerby.com/" >Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby</a> created two new, indoor/outdoor tile collections for <a href="http://www.mutina.it/" >Mutina</a> that give the user creative control to design a unique space thanks to the endless combinations the tiles afford. Both designs are bold and were inspired by experiments with geometry, color, patterns, and versatility. Take a look and imagine what can be created!

                                <a href="http://barberosgerby.com/projects/view/puzzle" >Puzzle</a> is a collection of tiles that turn simple geometric shapes into an infinite array of puzzle-like patterns on your walls and floors. Depending on how they&#8217;re laid out and what colors are used, the results can be simple tone-on-tone or a more dramatic, graphic pattern. Solid tiles can be mixed in to produce moments of calm or the bolder, geometric ones can become what looks like abstracted maps.

28 Creative Tile Ideas For the Bath and Beyond

For millennia, humans have been mixing and baking the combination of sand, clay and water to create a flat surface to protect their feet and homes from the elements. Glazed brick dates to the 13th century BC in ancient Iran, marking the advent of humanity’s use of colored tiles to beautify our surroundings. From the Ishtar gate in ancient Mesopotamia to the groovy patterns at the bottom of a Palm Springs swimming pool, time has given us endless inspiration for incorporating tile into our interiors. Who says tile should be banished to the bathroom? Take it out of hiding and let different surfaces throughout your house become the focal point. Read on for some inspiration to create a masterpiece (or two) in your own home.

17 Bathroom Tile Ideas That Are Anything But Boring

Bathroom tile ideas - Barbara Bestor - Freshome Mid-century American bathrooms were in love with pattern and color. The 1940s saw suburbs filled with bubblegum-pink bathroom floors, mint-green countertops, and even tubs, toilets and sinks in vibrant colors.

Ever since then, we’ve been covering our bathrooms in safe, quiet choices such as beige, gray and plain white. A neutral bathroom isn’t all bad. But these gorgeous, graphic tile treatments make us want to kiss quiet bathrooms goodbye. A small space like a bathroom is a great place to try out bold colors and finishes that might not work in larger areas. We’ve rounded up 17 colorful bathroom tile ideas to show you how.
