In this movie filmed by Dezeen, designer Erwan Bouroullec talks to Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs about the textured Pico tiles that he and his brother Ronan exhibited during Clerkenwell Design Week.
They introduced red and blue dots to indentations on the surface of the tiles, even though "colour was the very thing we wanted to avoid at the beginning," Bouroullec explains.
He says that although it is not clear what colour dots are used from a distance, spaces surrounded by the red tiles feel warmer than rooms covered in the blue tiles.
The small indentations on one side of the tiles create a quilted effect for comfort under foot and protrusions on the other side add grip.
The tiles were exhibited at the Domus showroom during Clerkenwell Design Week, and are made from heated compressed powder.
