Judge's comments:

The design capitalizes on the attributes of the ceramic material this lighting collection is made from to create distinctive and attractive colours, textures and finishes that stand out from the crowd.


The Tile Series is the result of our inexhaustible curiosity for developing products that pair traditional materials and techniques with experimental tools. This particular combination is fabricated in a local roofing workshop, using bespoke tooling made in-house.

Three different ceramic clay bodies make up the collection, which has been designed to offer customisation in length and application. Each of the 250mm tiles are handcrafted and organic in nature, with each tile slightly unique.

Expressing both visual and tactile beauty, the series is a timeless and durable collection that celebrates the partnership between traditional craftsmanship and the rigorous process of developing unique techniques.
