clé Introduces Shapes Hand-Crafted Cement Tile Collection
clé has introduced Shapes, a collection of seven cement tile designs in diamond, triangle, arabesque, rectangle, hexagon, and scallop configurations.
Created in the traditional encaustic method, the hand-crafted tiles are available in fifty silky matte colors. By combining the tiles with contrasting shapes and grout, a dramatically patterned surface is created.
The versatile tiles can be installed indoors and out, on floors and walls. The tiles are sized from 2″ x 8″ rectangles to 12″ triangles.
“Tiles have long been considered in terms of rectangles and squares. But recently, brought on by the trend-storm of the hexagonal shape, I think the design world has realized that varying shapes have the ability to offer much more visual and textural excitement. clé wanted to start an exploration of shapes in small to exaggerated sizes, beginning with cement — one of our most honored materials. I believe that our solid colored cements, with their silky feel and captivating shade variation, provide the perfect canvas for any shape.” ~ Deborah Osburn, Founder and Creative Director of clé
Shapes cement tiles are available exclusively on clé.
Deborah Osburn started the international artisan tile e-boutique in 2012. The tiles on clé are as distinct as the artists who create them. It is Osburn’s goal to provide a forum for discovery and conversation about what she loves most, tiles created by impassioned artists creating remarkable surfaces.
