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.
