Dezeen Showroom: Italian brand Fiandre Architectural Surfaces has launched a collection of antibacterial finishing tiles called Luce, which create a mesmerising play of light through sinuous lines and a chiaroscuro effect.
The collection references how light is able to "reveal, mould, draw and sculpt matter".
The tiles feature swirling lines and abstract reflections that create an interplay of light and shadow, which brings depth to architectural spaces.
"The unparalleled expressive and communicative force of light is the inspiration that brings shape to this exclusive project, taking architectural spaces to a new dimension," said Fiandre.
The tiles are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications and are intended for commercial and residential settings, as well as external facades. The material can also be used for furnishings and accessories.
The Luce range is available with Fiandre's patented Active Surfaces innovation, in which ceramic slabs are transformed into eco-active materials via a process called photocatalysis.
These high-performance materials replicate the properties of titanium dioxide combined with silver, which results in an oxidation reaction that makes the materials antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-odour and self-cleaning.
The tiles come in a neutral palette of six iridescent shades including pearl, black, blue, gold, silver and grey.
