Versatile Axis Ceramic Wall Tile by Yigit Ozer for Kutahya Seramík

Geometric freedom
The Alhambra, the world-famous Moorish fortress in Granada in Spain, possesses highly expressive examples of oriental ornamentation. Various forms of ceramic tiles create walls and ceilings filled with artistic decorations that immediately cast a spell on the visitor. The design of the Versatile ceramic tile collection springs from such expressiveness in an extremely innovative way. Considered individually, the tiles are three-dimensional and structural elements which can be combined on a wall to create incisive motifs. It is fascinating how the play of light on the Versatile tiles gives rooms an impressive depth. Another important characteristic is the haptic nature of their surface. The tiles feel soft so that one wants to touch them. Versatile tiles give planners and architects alike plenty of scope for creativity as they open up a wide range of uses. Axis are decorative tiles that form part of the innovative Versatile tile collection. They are characterised by a flowing S and offer a wide range of creative possibilities for individual applications.

The jury’s rationale
The Versatile collection takes traditional tile design into a new, third dimension. The tile is no longer just a flat surface which covers or protects a wall, but is a spatial form in itself which gives rooms a new perspective. The motif is at once simple and carefully thought through and helps to give an imposing impression of a room.
