Inspired by Kintsugi, the Japanese tradition of repairing broken pottery using metallic inks, this collection of resilient flooring tiles highlights the beauty in imperfection. The two lines within the series – Oxidized and Molten – riff on industrial concrete and the patina of natural surfaces through the injection of soft metallic accents.
Oxidized, as its name implies, features a mottled or weathered pattern reminiscent of naturally occurring rust that transform the light within a space by creating subtle reflections. Seven colours are available ranging from turquoise and travertine to sapphire and basalt.
Utilizing an embossing process, Molten mimics the texture of stone surfaces complete with crevices that are emphasized with metallic inks. The seven stone-like options include alabaster, quartz, shale and obsidian.
The 60-by-60-centimetre tiles are five millimetres thick, allowing for seamless installation alongside carpet without transition strips.
