MEWS by Barber & Osgerby
This collection was inspired by the landscape, history and personality of London and the huge variety of textures present in the infrastructure there: bricks, wooden floors and irregular geometric patterns.
The apparently random and intentionally inaccurate effect is due to the color compositional freedom obtained by extensive research and several experimentations on color and combinations. The collection consists of 6 base colors: chalk, fog, pigeon, lead, ink and soot, each of which contains a palette of 15 different shades. This wide color range adds depth and movement to the tiled surface making it rich and remarkable. The production of Mews is industrially made in homogeneous porcelain stoneware with a colored mass dough and it has been designed with both contemporary and traditional use in mind. The variety of neutral tones allows the tiles to be a focal point or a backdrop in any interior scheme.
