Designed exclusively by The Conran Shop in an exciting collaboration with skilled east London makers Bert & May, the encaustic Square Cement Tile in grey and neutral is meticulously handcrafted in Andalucía, Spain and presents the opportunity for you to create a unique installation in your home. Please note: One square meter requires 25 tiles.
Showcasing a soft palette inspired by hues present in modernist architecture, each Square Tile is individually hand-poured with mineral pigments, compressed and then water-cured, in a specialist and intricate process that takes around 90 minutes per tile.
Configurable in limitless ways to create linear or abstract patterns, this grey and neutral Square Tile becomes a building block to make up your own bespoke installation when paired with coordinating and inverse colourways, or any other tile design in the collection. Each tile in the range is suitable for use indoors and out, on your walls or on the floor.
Each The Conran Shop x Bert & May tile is hand-poured in Spain by their fourth-generation artisan Spanish tile makers and is dried and cured in the Spanish sunshine for two weeks. Crushed marble is added to create a durable hard-wearing tile with beautiful raw finish that only gets better with age.
The encaustic nature of the Square Cement Tiles’ mineral pigment ensures their unique hue will always resist fading, making them perfect for enhancing a variety of areas: fireplaces, floors, courtyards or stairways are just a starting point.
Please note: These tiles are unglazed for a beautifully distinctive finish, therefore require sealing before use. Click here to find out more: https://www.bertandmay.com/pages/tile-installation-guide
