Berlin stove tiles by Daniel Becker Design Studio
Cologne 2013: Berlin-based product designer Daniel Becker has created a set of ceramic tiles that let stoves give off more heat.
The Berlin stove tiles by Daniel Becker Design Studio are decorated with a geometric dotted pattern.
The three-dimensional pattern increases the surface area of the tiles so that they lose heat faster, warming the room more effectively.
The tiles were developed with Kaufmann Keramik and Brunner Kachelöfen, German companies that specialise in stoves and fireplaces.
Becker's tiles were shortlisted for the [D3] Contest for young designers at trade fair imm cologne, which was won by a wooden interlocking shelving system.
Other tiles we've featured on Dezeen include an art gallery covered in glazed black tiles and a collection of tiles that look like oxidised metals – see all tiles on Dezeen.
