Lunada Bay Tile

June 27, 2017

Lunada Bay Tile has released a fresh catch of designs for Shinju, the ceramic tile collection inspired by oysters, pearls and the waters they live in, adding four new shapes to the collection. Paper is a textured, three-dimensional tile that emulates the look of crinkled paper; Serene is rectangular field tile with subtle texture; Tent is a rectangular, three-dimensional tile that has a linear raised center; and Zen Garden is a textured tile that emulates the calming essence of meditative gardens.

Launched in 2016, the Shinju ceramic collection reflects the colors of the deep sea and the creatures within. Shinju, which means “pearl” in Japanese, translates the ridges of mottled oyster shells, the shimmer of the pearls inside, the earthy brine of the sea, and the movement of waves into a modern, elegant tile collection. The five colors of Shinju are named after some of the world’s favorite oysters: Kumamoto (white), Kushi (light silver), Moonstone (dark silver), Pacific (chocolate brown/bronze) and Olympia (dark copper).
