Powerful used look for industrial style in a residential setting
PIER 45 – the name says it all: The nearly archaic-looking finishes on the legendary dock in New York, which offers a fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline, furnished the inspiration for the distinctive used look of this tile range. With a concrete look in varied colours and worn-looking textures, PIER 45 is the perfect basis for furnishings in the current, residential industrial style.
Genuine and full of character – this is how the large-format tiles of VilboStone porcelain stoneware present themselves. The three bold colours of ash grey, rusty grey and smokey black deploy their surface effect particularly impressively in 60 x 120-cm format – on the wall and on the floor. Harmoniously matched décor tiles surprise with an extremely subtle design: delicate ornaments that seem to have aged with time sometimes appear only at second glance – and are stunning as a ‘carpet of tiles’ or individually ‘scattered’ throughout the covering.
And the hexagon mosaics are perfect for an even more authentic look: With a long tradition in architecture, the hexagonal shape has been in use worldwide, both in the past and down to the present day – and that includes Pier 45 on the banks of the Hudson River.
An additional bonus: Unlike real concrete, the easy-care VilbostonePlus finish makes these porcelain stoneware tiles particularly resistant to dirt and easy to clean.
