Get The Look: Lindsey Lang’s Embossed Cement Tile Designs

We’re always curious to see what other tile designers are doing, especially when they are moving in a similar direction to what we’ve been exploring.  Lately, in a desire to explore more way to create cement tile designs, we been working to create embossed cement tiles which we will be introducing shortly.  So we were intrigued when we spotted the cement tile designs of British designer Lindsey Lang. Borrowing from the archives of the London Underground, she created these patterns in embossed cement.  It seems the old saying is true: great minds think alike!

The pattern above was inspired by the 1938 roundel design seen in ceramic panels in Aldgate East and Bethnal Green stations, while the chevron tile below, is based on a fabric pattern designed by British painter Enid Marx in 1938 that was used on the Piccadilly and Central line trains. When rendered in concrete, the material’s matte finish gives the designs a look that is at once modern and vintage.

Granada Tile Cement Tile At The Cape, A Thompson Hotel, in Cabo

 

Just say the word Cabo to us these last few weeks and we’ll say YES!  Even usually sunny and warm Los Angeles, one of our ports of call, has been cold and damp.  So we have to say we’re jealous of our Buniel cement tileScreen Shot 2016-02-02 at 3.52.31 PMIt can be found throughout The Cape, a Thompson Hotel in Cabo, basking in the warm glow of the Caribbean sun. The white, teal and mist concrete tile not only echoes the beautiful blues of the sea but — one of the secrets of concrete tile floors — feels soft as velvet on your feet (And did you also know that, because of encaustic tile’s properties, they’re less likely to be slippery when wet. That’s because concrete tiles are porous so they absorb water.)
