Ahead of Fraser Lockley from the brand joining editor Hamish Kilburn on stage on Thursday at the Surface Design Show, Parkside Architectural Tiles has launched a new ceramic wall tile collection…
Made up of three glaze finishes; the playful and pearlescent hologram, matt and gloss, Spectre lets designers explore the interaction of light on different surfaces. The matt and gloss finishes are available on their own, or with a mixed finish box including all three finishes. By combining the different glazes in either a random combination or structured pattern, the collection can be used to dramatic effect, with light dancing across the finishes for a unique look at every viewing angle.
Most notable, the hologram finish uses a precious metals glaze to recreate an incredibly captivating and ever-changing spectrum effect. Each tile is unique, simply adding to the impact, with different gradients and shade combinations. Changing colour and reflectivity depending on where its viewed and the light conditions at that time, the hologram finish brings a different kind of pop to wall tiles.
Spectre comes in four colours of Sky, Cream, Rose and Milk and brings a thoroughly modern aesthetic, heightened by the intriguing 5cm x 25cm vertical format: “Spectre is an extraordinary collection that uses light as its catalyst for creativity,” explains Ian Mattacola, product manager, Parkside Architectural Tiles. “Creating iridescent rhythmic patterns through thoughtful pastel tones, it’s a tile that feels thoroughly modern and elegant while somehow bringing an intoxicating, playful spirit.”
Suitable for both commercial and residential interiors, the exclusive Spectre collection is available from Parkside in all four colourways, giving designers and specifiers the chance to explore unique finishes with the reassurance of the supplier’s high service levels.
Hotel Designs’ Hamish Kilburn will host the panel discussion entitled: Biophilic Materials in Surface Design. He will be joined on the sofa by Fraser Lockley (architectural consultancy manager at Parkside Architectural Tiles), Jeremy Grove (Managing Director of Sibley Grove) and Richard Holland (Director of Holland Harvey Architects).
