Icons of style with an urban retro charm
Anyone who has ever travelled on the Paris underground will be familiar with the white tiles found in corridors and stations there. The glossy tiles were installed in the corridors and stations of the famous metro when it was built at the beginning of the 20th century in order to reflect the light from the electric lamps, which was still weak in the early days of electricity, and to brighten up the surroundings. These tiles featuring the characteristic facet have since left the underground and arrived in interior design in grand style all over the world: as true icons of style, they bring urban flair into the home.
Spanning three formats and eight modern colours, the METRO FLAIR wall concept offers plenty of scope for different combinations and installation options: laid with a brickwork-like look, in a herringbone array or in a joint-coordinated pattern, the nonvitreous tiles add a fresh and congenial ambience coupled with trendy elegance. The colour range accommodates all manner of personal home living styles: a monochrome look for a special touch of class, strong contrasts for a stylish statement or tone-in-tone for a wonderfully harmonious appearance. The ceramics work their irresistible retro charm in kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, halls and entrance areas, and also offer planners and architects modern interior design options for fitting out hotels, restaurants and shops.
