Lunada Bay Tile
December 20, 2017
A vivid interplay of color and shape comes alive in the latest additions to Lunada Bay Tile’s Luce glass mosaic tile collection. With semi-opaque glass and playful forms, new Feather, Fin, Clipper, and Hex shapes shimmer in the light, much like the sun glittering across moving water. As light bounces off the surface, the mosaics absorb and reflect nuances of the colors around them.
Three of the new shapes are distinctive in form: Feather features the wispy silhouette of its namesake; it takes on different interpretations, from the look of waves to the reflection of roof tiles, depending on its orientation and viewpoint. Fin offers a flirty tilt on traditional geometry, with an elongated, asymmetric shape reminiscent of bamboo. Clipper also plays with traditional rectilinear forms; its crisp, clipped end combines into bold visuals appearing to be both random and organized. As each shape’s unique pattern and texture combine with variegated color blends, an elegant flow emerges across the wall or floor that evokes the feel of sunlight on water. The fourth shape, 2-in. Hex, expresses these same effects in an ever-popular polygon form.
“In an industry accustomed to playing with pattern rather than shape, Fin, Feather, and Clipper stand out for their unique look and their dramatic interaction with light,” says Feras Irikat, director of design and marketing for Lunada Bay Tile. “The pearlescent water-like effect is soothing yet contemporary, ideal for setting a relaxing tone in the bath or infusing modern luxury in the kitchen.”
Twelve hues are available in Pearl or Silk finishes. Offerings comprise light, neutral tones (Moonlit, Zephyr, Elevation, and Sugar Cake); lush-terrain-inspired mid-tones (Bamboo Garden, Aurora, and Earthy); aquatic tones (Aero, Mineral Springs, and Intrigue); and darker hues (Mettle and Sani).
