The Innovators Issue: Junya Ishigama's genre-busting architecture, Sidewalk Labs and the future of the city, and more!

This bumper crop of large-format tiles – by companies including Fuoriformato, Ornamenta and ABK – shows just how big botanicals are going to be.

I Grafici by Fuoriformato

Fuoriformato (a specialty large-format brand under Target Group) focuses on left-field graphics inspired by sketchwork. Part of the I Grafici collection, Ginko by Japanese artist Asako Hishiki is a layered leafy pattern rendered in autumnal yellows. Sold in sizes up to one by three metres. fuoriformato.net

Operae by Ornamenta

Designed by Davide Tonelli’s D-Segno Studio, Ornamenta’s foray into large-scale ceramics includes seven graphic options, Domestic Jungle – inspired by palm prints of the 1950s – among them. The 120-by-240-centimetre slabs come in four colourways: Blush, Earth, Aquifer and Inked.

Paper41 Pro by 41Zero42

This HD-printed collection of 3.5-millimetre-thick slabs flaunts 41zero42’s playful streak. Luz, with its finely detailed palm trees, is the most equatorial of the 12 offerings, many of which boast botanical motifs. Each 50-by-100-centimetre slab is fibreglass reinforced. 41zero42.com

Wideandstyle Dark Edition by ABK

A whole biodome can be found in Dark Edition, ABK’s 160-by-320-centimetre slab collection sporting butterflies, birds and plants. Wild Berry, one of six patterns in the series, depicts wild strawberries ripening on the vine. abk.it
