TechTile London helps launch top art materials store
Working alongside award-winning design studio Pentagram Design, TechTile London recently helped with the launch of a trendy new design store in Kingston-upon-Thames. Cass Art is a creative provider of a range of artistic materials and tools, and TechTile London has supplied their brand new Origin range of porcelain tiles for the launch of the brand new store.
Cass Art epitomises trendy, modern art, and wanted a tile that would remain clean and contemporary whilst flattering their brand new space. The brand new Origin range, which is exclusively crafted by the experts at Tech Tile London, was the perfect choice for their launch for a multitude of reasons. The minimal porcelain effect was classy and fresh, without being too overbearing, and the neutral backdrop allowed the art and the art materials to take centre stage.
Large format porcelain tiles are ideal for use in such retail spaces. They have appropriate slip ratings that will conform to health and safety standards, and their minimal and neutral aesthetic is attractive without pulling attention from the products available to buy in store. Clients can choose what size they would like their tiles to be, with a plethora of options offering plenty of scope for originality and creativity; the smallest tile measures 300mm x 600mm whilst the largest is an impressive 1200mm x 1200mm. The porcelain tiles are fantastic for both walls and floors, and using the same material across both gives a sense of fluid and coherent style all the way through a commercial interior.
The high-quality materials and the profession finish also fits in with the ethos and manifesto of Cass Art. Only the very best art materials such as oils and canvases are sold throughout the store, so a first-class statement of intent with regards to decor for the launch was integral. The overall effect is powerful, classy and full of design nous; extremely relevant for an art store with a fine supply of materials.
TechTile London can provide a bespoke service for those looking to fit porcelain, glass or natural stone tiles tiles into a commercial space. Working closely with the best tile manufacturers in Europe, they can source he finest materials available and hone them into products such as the magnificent Origins range. Designs can be made to each individual's specifications, and the high-quality of the floor, wall and countertop tiles mean that they will last through and complement many redesigns in years to come.
