Imagine Tile and Art of Board introduce ceramic Skate Tile collection

NEW YORK, NY -- Imagine Tile, pioneers of using high-resolution imagery on commercially rated ceramic tile, is excited to introduce their first-ever collaboration with Art of Board. The collection is an original photo-realistic tile that embraces a used skateboard’s scratches, gouges, and worn graphics, taking the art of skating beyond the streets. Art of Board, a lifestyle brand that embodies the creative spirit, freedom and individuality of skateboarding, worked with Imagine Tile to preserve and pay homage to the graphic art that adorns skateboard decks.

Imagine Tile has collaborated with Art of Board and unveiled a collection inspired by skateboarders. 

 

"We’re excited about our partnership with Art of Board, as they’ve helped us bring a very graphic, urban visual to a unique medium," said Christian McAuley, owner of Imagine Tile.

The first release of this collection, which is now available, features 24 varying patterns with alternating colors and textures unique to the skateboarding culture. The 3- x 6-inch ceramic wall tiles have a standard finish. The second part of this collaboration, expected to be released spring 2013, will include floor tile with a commercial floor rating suitable for both interior and exterior use.

This collection is a sustainable and versatile surfacing solution, allowing designers, architects, and homeowners to install on any surface. The ceramic collection contains no VOCs, is made with pre-consumer recycled materials, and is sustainable with a long life cycle. The tiling is also engineered to be extremely resistant to strong chemicals and unaffected by UV lighting.

This collection also benefits skateboard charities and skate parks including: Life Rolls On, a subsidiary of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, the Tony Hawk Foundation and Make-A-Wish Foundation, among others.
