Tile Lookbook 2019


Protz Studio is an architecture, design, and visual arts practice based in Tucson, Arizona. We focus on interiority, atmosphere, and interface with the environment to generate innovative material and visual narratives. Our architectural designs strive to provoke the senses, engage the imagination, and evoke a feeling of timelessness. We provide a full range of architectural services— from concept development to construction administration—and we’re intimately involved with the craftsmanship of all we do, working with builders and fabricators through every phase of every project. Our studio also specializes in the custom design and production of ceramic tile artworks. We’ve produced pieces for a range of commercial and private clients, using active research and experimentation to create pattern-based pieces that explore nuances of material. Often, we integrate our ceramic tiles into our architectural projects, empowering them to work together to create transformative interiors.


Design is making patterns... Look through our catalog—choose individual designs or mix-and-match. Or, collaborate with us on a custom design. With all of our tiles, the overall pattern emerges during installation—we provide instructions and a few simple rules, but the builder completes the work to reveal the final pattern. All of our tile is made-to-order. Each one is hand-printed on bisque and kilnfired. As a result, each tile has minor variations and imperfections in glaze coat, coloration, and edge quality, which adds character to the tiles and the aggregate field of tile. The standard tile is 6"x6" square. Other shapes and dimensions are available by special request—see page 6. Select from the base and glaze colors on page 7, or request a custom color and we'll do our best to meet your specific needs. If you like what you see, please get in touch! We’re happy to provide samples and cost estimates as needed. hello@protzstudio.com
