The modern vintage effect: hexagonal porcelain stoneware tiles
by Sara Costi
The geometric effect of these hexagonal porcelain stoneware tiles offers a modern take on traditional honeycomb patterning, with four different collections to choose from: a creative pastel colour palette from the R-Evolution line, the timeless marble-effect Marmoker collection, the Pietra Baugè collection - a new take on the famous French stone - and the cement-effect Resina collection, with its sophisticated neutral tones.
The use of geometric shaping in porcelain stoneware flooring and tiling has experienced a massive resurgence, with hexagonal tiles as the most popular option.
They began to be used as a cement-based tiling material in the 19th century, but they only reached peak popularity in the 1930s.
The versatility of hexagonal porcelain stoneware tiles means they adapt to any style (modern, classic, vintage and rustic) and type of space and can be used for flooring and walls in a variety of settings. They’re the perfect choice for the floor of a hall or lounge, where they can be laid to create a carpet effect.

As for wall covering, hexagonal porcelain stoneware tiles are recommended as a decorative feature inside shower enclosures, the sides of a wash basin or sink and around the cooking area in the kitchen. Generally speaking, they can be used to bring emphasis to any space in the home, be it in the bedroom or the living room.

Hexagonal tiles open up a world of creative possibilities. For example, they can be combined with other formats of tile from the same collection, giving an elegant, dynamic aesthetic to a room and creating a sophisticated sense of stylistic continuity.
