fossil brown

TThe FOSSIL Tile collection is a translation of the prehistoric imprints of plants and animals on rock formations, into to-day interior ornamental motives. In the process of sketching especially inspiring were marks of the extinct ammonites fluted shells. The fact that the pattern is drawn by hand gives it its unique feeling resembling traces of primeval creatures pressed against the surface of the stone. In the subtle motives ones imagination can see different figures. They bring to mind a regularities of form found in the natural world.
Traces of the pattern brake and overlap just like the signs of time in the archeological excavations. Running in different directions strokes create an optical illusions of empty and dark spots. The curious optical illusion of the interior is created by the perspective shortcuts of separate strokes. The interlocking mosaic of the shades resemble a natural stone, creating modern interpretation of marble – symbol of tradition and refined taste of the luxury of precious materials. The FOSSIL pattern gives an interior a simple, natural and elegant atmosphere.
