Profiled ceramic wall tiles
Found Space Tiles transform the common into the uncommon. Designers Stephanie Davidson and Georg Rafailidis developed the tiles after seeking greater possibilities within a conventional tiled surface. Much like appropriating found objects, these tiles are made using the found spaces between bodies and architectural surfaces, turned into positive forms. The resulting tiles are a formal hybrid between two very necessary and basic architectural elements—the body and the wall. Part body and part wall, the tiles echo the presence of a person, a posture, and literally reach-out to be touched.
Made in posture and/or body-specific clusters, the tiles are designed in standard finished dimensions, intended to be incorporated into inexpensive, 15 x 15 cm tiled surfaces.
