Triple and Bianco

"Each design references a different universe: from fields seen from the sky, to pieces of a fabric, to embroideries, to symbols of cartographic keys, to architectural patterns, to symbols reproduced by prisoners on the wall to count the days," said Sempé.

All the patterned tiles feature simple, digitally printed, geometric lines that look hand-drawn.

The patterns available separately include Epi, a tree or feather-like repeated pattern, and Triple, in which each tile is split into thirds from a central point and features sets of parallel lines at 120 degrees to each other.

Grigio, Bianco and Ligne

Croisée, Aqua, and Feutre all variations on a simple cross-hatched design. Ligne is made up of parallel lines, the spaces between which are sometimes filled and sometimes left blank, while for Tiers, parallel lines fill a third of the tile and lines perpendicular to these cover the rest.
