Colorblock in the Kitchen: Backsplashes from Copenhagen

To be filed under "Why didn't we think of this?" Copenhagen-based Made a Mano have quietly been producing some of the most innovative ceramic tiles we've seen; we especially like their color-blocked take on the kitchen backsplash (suddenly our own safe subway tile backsplashes seem uninspired).

Proof that Made a Mano should be on your radar? They've got a shop at the Docklands in London, side by side the genius Tom Dixon. For more information, go to Made a Mano.
