Concept

Seeking to provide a contemporary and inspired design for a hi-end Japanese restaurant in NYC, a custom modular tile system was created as the main feature element. In combination with a soft field of suspended lighting above as well as an elegant custom exterior storefront this small yet innovatively designed project provided the desired theatrical effects required to generate enthusiasm among an ever-increasing clientele.

Product Specifications

Tiles measure (6″ (.15 m) high x 3′-0″ (.91 m) long x 4″ (.10 m) deep) and attach to the wall with simple cleat hardware making it easy to replace and oversee maintenance. Made out of cast polymer, each tile receives an industrial-grade paint finish to match any color specification provided by the client.

Product Options

The tile comes in the standard dimensions specified above but can be produced as a custom order in any size, or color.
