Bubbly Paws, Rubble’s recent commercial project, features more trending and innovative European Tile. This time we’re featuring Mosa‘s Kho Liang Ie tile, a revived design classic from the Sixties. The Rubble team enjoyed working with Bubbly Paws and their design team. After all, who doesn’t love dogs?

In fact, Bubbly Paws’ owners started their business because they got fed up with the hair and mess leftover after every bath and brushing in their home with their dog, Roxy, a Bernese Mountain Dog. Now they’re taking the headache out of dog grooming for everyone. Started in 2011, Bubbly Paws has grown to three locations, plus an online shop.

They make washing your dog fun in their upscale dog spa! Bring your pup to the Bubbly Paws self-service dog wash and they’ll give you everything you need to make your dog look and smell great. They have professional, waist-high tubs so you don’t have to bend over and non-slip ramps so larger dogs can easily get in the tub.

Kho Liang le Collection




Mosa has revived a design classic from the Sixties: the ‘Kho Liang Ie Collection’. Gloss white tiles with relief  circles, segments of circles, diagonals and triangles. Size 10 x 10 centimeter (just under 4×4). The relief tiles can be combined to create unusual effects. A smooth wall tile is also available to complement the relief tiles.

Six relief shapes and a white field tile create nearly limitless pattern possibilities.

Relief circles and circle segments of varying size give the white wall dimension and style.

Kho Liang Ie




Kho Liang Ie (1927-1975) was one of the most significant interior and industrial designers in the Netherlands. During his all too short career, Kho managed to create an impressive oeuvre. He was a designer of immeasurable value to furniture manufacturers like Artifort, CAR and Spectrum. In the Sixties he used the relief tiles he had designed for Mosa in the interior of Schiphol International Airport.



Circle segments create this innovative pattern.
