Unique translucent porcelain wall tiles with a textile relief

Studio Barbara Vos has designed a unique brand of tiles with beautiful structure and clear detail, known as tex-tilesŠ. The tex-tilesŠ derive their name from the process of pressing fabric or textile into the porcelain. By combining translucent porcelain with the softness and texture of textiles, one of a kind customizable tiles are made. The tiles are suitable for any space, whether it is a sauna, spa, hotel, wellness centre, kitchen or bathroom.

“Cheerful, surprising, unexpected and thoughtful.”

LED back lighting

Subtle lighting can be added behind the tiles which shines through creating warm and detailed pattern. Thinner parts show more light, while thicker parts show less. This gives an extra mesmerizing dimension to the tile by the accentuation of the relief by the light. One can also vary and play with the color and mode of LED-lighting behind the tiling to create a magical atmosphere. Note: adding LED light is an option, it is not a necessary. Tex-tilesŠ alone are a luxurious and distinctive way of tiling your space. A demonstration of the LED-lighting is shown in a video.

Porcelain tiles versus traditional earthenware tiles

Normally tiles are made out of earthenware with a layer of glaze. Tex-tilesŠ are made of porcelain. Porcelain has the quality to be water and frost-resistant. Porcelain is often used to make delicate tea cups and other fine tableware. The surface of this porcelain tile does not need any glazing which makes it very special and different from other tiles. The surface of the tiles are polished which gives them a unique unexpected softness.
