  2020 Spring Summer Featured Collections

Our 2020 Spring Summer Collection reflects a playful biophilic design aesthetic. Let’s take a look at some of my favorites.


SCENARI | Gauged Porcelain Tile, Small format 24″x48″

The gauged porcelain tile’s wallcovering aesthetics let you bring greenery into your design without the maintenance.

ORGANIC CONCRETE | Standard Thickness, Gauged Porcelain Tile, Porcelain Paver in a Variety of Sizes 

This concrete collection has subtle and bold organic designs etched on its surface. Some of the designs remind me of looking at objects under a microscope in high school biology class, they have a molecular vibe.

FRAMMENTO | Standard Thickness in a Variety of Sizes 

Terrazzo looks can have an organic quality to them, especially our new collection, Frammento. The Macro design plays with the scale of the aggregate. The collection’s through body technology makes it hard to tell if this is a porcelain terrazzo look or the real deal. Another fun and playful element to this collection is its use of color. Macro and Micro are available in rose, pink, green, yellow and blue colorways, making this terrazzo collection the most colorful option available in tile.
