The Designer Den

Musings on our trampoline cement and marble tile design

TilesLinda Benjamin

Working from the common space of a glass encased office block in west London, I spotted one of our seven tile designs on a cushion and for a moment lost myself studying the geometry and interplay of shapes.

The trampoline is the stretched square shape that results from the circle that results from the arrangement of four oval shapes. To my senses, the design triggers an automatic feeling of pleasure causing the corners of my mouth to upturn into a subtle smile. I breathe out and relax into the repeated pattern.  

The Designer Den brings you handmoulded trampoline design tiles from our Portuguese artisan partners, using locally sourced crushed marble air dried on a base of cement.

The hard wearing surface of the tiles takes on a beautiful sheen over time as the natural properties of the marble settle down in harmony with the design they embody, giving everlasting pleasure to their beholders.
