The visible passage of time

Whereas rust was once much maligned, it has now become an important design feature in both art and architecture. Not only sculptures but also paintings, accessories and whole architectural elements bear traces of oxidised metal. The fascination of rust lies in the beauty of its colourful ageing process, exhibiting shades ranging from dark brown to pastel green in a wide variety of different nuances.

METALLIC ILLUSION, a tile range in modern large formats up to 60 x 120 cm, is the ideal complement to this furnishing style.

Its surfaces have a cement-like structure with warm rust shades running through them, as if different metal elements had left their mark over time. With this varied design, the tiles are not only a very stylish addition to private living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms but also in the high-end hotel industry and shopfitting.

The tiles in 60 x 60, 30 x 120 and 60 x 120 cm are available with matt and rough-polished finishes.
