ANN SACKS has unveiled a series of new designs, now available in showrooms, including the wall and floor porcelain collection Yakisugi, which was inspired by the ancient Japanese art form of shou-sugi-ban, or yakisugi. This technique consists of charring wood to preserve and antique its composition, increasing its strength and visual character and is still coveted for its unique beauty and rarified nature. ANN SACKS brings the same graphic characteristics to interiors and exteriors in a forgiving porcelain tile that is available in field tiles including plank and rectangle, as well as a mosaic version. The matte formats can be used on indoor walls and flooring and comply with ADA slip requirements for horizontal surfaces in wet environments, while the gloss formats are suitable for wall applications and limited residential flooring only.
