Trend Alert: 5 Minimalist Graphic Ceramic Tiles

April 3, 2015

Spotted lately: tiles so subtly patterned they require a second look.

Above: Brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec say their Pico Tile for Mutina has a “matte finish with a sensual surface feel. With its slightly irregular dotted texture, Pico stands in contrast with the extreme brightness and slickness of today’s coating materials.” The tiles are available in several colorways; go to Mutina for more information.

Above: Parisian designer Inga Sempé created a collection of tiles in eight patterns for Mutina; shown above is the Epi pattern.

Above: Designed by UK artist Neisha Crosland, Haveli tiles for Ann Sacks have a subtle geometric pattern.

Above: The porcelain Muse tile line by English designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby “is strongly influenced by the city of London, where we both live,” they say. “It’s inspired by the history and the personality of the British capital, and by the huge variety of textures characterizing its infrastructures, such as bricks, wooden floors, and irregular geometrical patterns.”
