Introducing Mosa Canvas: Subtle, Versatile, Tactile Porcelain Tile
The Dutch tile makers at Mosa are well known for sustainable practices and innovative designs. Now, they’ve introduced a new porcelain tile collection created to enrich a space through its tactile relief and soft, organic character. These tiles are also hardwearing and functional, especially fit for commercial, public and multi-use spaces.
A Natural, Understated Porcelain Tile
The beauty of Canvas is about being natural and understated. These tiles are designed to be versatile and subtle, featuring a delicate glimmer effect and a tactile finish pleasing to the eye and touch.
The textural relief feature on the tiles’ surfaces was especially designed for the Canvas collection. This carefully calculated combination of personality and restraint doesn’t draw the eye in a harsh or demanding way. Instead, Canvas tiles can support any spatial concept with poise, by underlining an interior gently and allowing space for life to unfold organically, both in terms of looks and function. These characteristics make the tiles well-suited for multifunctional interiors.
The Mosa Canvas Collection at Rubble Tile
The collection’s range of nine colors was created to adhere to its overall high-quality aesthetic and subtle character. Spanning cool and warm colors, in a variety of shades that feel at home next to each other, Canvas’ colors are inspired by nature. Each tile is a composition of numerous speckles – ceramic flakes – that come together to achieve a beautiful end product.
Canvas tiles come in two sizes – 12 x 24 and 24 x 24 inch. While Canvas has been especially designed to avoid favoring a specific direction through patterns that guide the user’s gaze, the 12 x 24 inch option is offered to lead the eye to a certain direction should the designer need it – or to use it to compose a pattern or accent in combination with the 24 x 24 inch version.
With Canvas, you can integrate different functions within walls and floors without devaluing the high finish quality of the space. In addition to a 24 inch by 3.8 inch bullnose, Canvas also offers special tiles for stair treads and skirting boards.
The tiles in Canvas are modular. This makes it easy to create a number of different patterns. These tile patterns create an interplay of lines on floors and walls. You can create a subdued or bold look, a linear or edgy aesthetic.
Here are some pattern examples – or create the desired effect by designing your own pattern with the use of Mosa’s Pattern Generator.
Porcelain Tile with Subtle Texture
Texture is key to any ceramic surface, and the Canvas series is no exception. Each product features a pigmented granulate mix (spray-dried and milled mass) and ceramic flakes in a variety of sizes. Together with the relief design, Canvas tiles create a pleasant and tactile result that is low maintenance and results in anti-slip properties. Furthermore, the unique coating ensures the tiles are very easy to clean.
Cradle to Cradle Silver
Sustainability is one of the main pillars of Mosa, and Canvas is no exception. The tiles are made of the purest materials in a sustainable design and production process, and Cradle to Cradle® Silver certified. From design to production process, Mosa focuses intensively on sustainability.
On the basis of five main criteria, Mosa strives to reduce waste, to save energy, and to take social responsibility: pure raw materials, great recycling potential, low energy consumption, environmentally-friendly water management, and good terms and conditions of employment. That’s something we at Rubble Tile are proud to support and represent.
At Rubble Tile, we believe that every surface is a canvas where life can unfold. Mosa’s Canvas series celebrates design as an everyday work of art, through its technical and aesthetic refinement, and versatility.
From its discreet yet highly sophisticated colors, to its subtle glimmer, and from its superlative functionality to its tactile surface, this is a tile series that is stylish, yet tough and durable. Canvas is a natural match to any interior design vision.
