The exclusive motifs are based on three geometric elements that can be combined to create boundless patterns in a soft palette inspired by hues present in modernist architecture. The tiles can be combined with their inverse colourways or any other tile in the range to create a bespoke installation: indoors or out, on the floor or on your walls.
Crafted by artisan tile makers using traditional methods and natural pigments, the handmade tiles will retail at £5.76 per tile / £144 per square metre for plain tiles and £7.68 per tile / £192 per square metre for pattern tiles.
The new collection will be launched at Bert & May’s east London showroom during London Design Festival from 16-24th September (Bert & May, 67 Vyner Street, London E2 9DQ) and will be available to purchase in-store and online at The Conran Shop and Bert & May; including the new Bert and May shop on Lotts Road.
Lee Thornley, founder of Bert & May, comments:
“We are delighted to collaborate with The Conran Shop, a brand that has been consistently synonymous with considered design for decades. Our new collaboration combines the skills of Bert & May’s craftspeople and Conran’s design expertise to create a wonderful, graphic collection that’s perfect for the home and garden.”
Rosie Stonham, designer at The Conran Shop, comments:
“This collection is influenced by Sir Terence Conran’s design philosophy of ‘Plain, Simple, Useful’, to achieve modern, timeless designs. Each tile features one of the most simplified elements of geometry: the curve, the line and the square. Available in inverted colours, the collection uses negative and positive space to create various patterns or personalised installations.
The range is comprised of three distinct colourways: a warm combination of natural grey tones, a soft sage green - offset by nude pink - and a powdery interpretation of our signature Conran blue.”
