Clerkenwell Design Week 2013: Spanish atelier MUT patterned these tiles with shapes that look like overlapping pieces of coloured paper.
The hexagonal cement floor tiles are designed to imitate the psychedelic patterns seen through a kaleidoscope.
Four different designs range from a scattering of shapes to a complete radial design, which can be mixed and matched to create a multitude of patterns.
Manufactured in Spain by tile specialists Entic designs, they are available in a blue- or red-based palette.
The tiles were on show at this year's Clerkenwell Design Week, where felt cocoons for relaxing in and lamps based on glass vats found in a milking parlour were also exhibited.
At last year's event we filmed a movie with Erwan Bouroullec, who told us about the textured tiles he and his brother Ronan were launching.
Our archive of stories about tiles includes a converted hayloft that features spotty designs on the walls and a pizza bar in north-east London clad with graphic patterns.

Following the success of Drops, the previous collection of hydraulic ceramic floor tiles exhibited in Milan, enticdesigns is again teaming up with the Spanish studio, MUT design, to create it’s new collection, this time inspired by one of the most emblematic toys of our childhood; the kaleidoscope.
The multi-coloured pieces of Keidos form a new emotive and playful design collection. Keidos, as with it’s predecessor Drops, breaks with formal tradition, distancing itself from a rigid, modular system that characterised the hydraulic floors at the end of the 19th Century.
Thanks to simple geometry, the four pieces that make up Keidos, represent the pieces of indescribable beauty captured by kaleidoscopes. Little, delicately-coloured and irregular segments have become the common denominator in this new project.
Conceptualised to allow for thousands of combinations, the new design for enticdesigns offers as many unique solutions as there are spaces. With the versatile colour palette, Keidos floors allow for elegant and inspirational designs for hidden corners and places of reflection. This collection offers customisation without limits with its different pieces. 100% made in Spain.
