"Launching a floor collection with Imagine Tile was a natural next step with the continued success of our 3- x 6-inch ceramic wall tile," said Art of Board founder, Rich Moorhead. "Being able to create such a unique product with a company that values sustainability and good design as much as we do adds even more originality to our story and is taking skateboarding where it's never been."
The new collection, which is now available, features a variation of 12 different 12- x 24-inch rectified porcelain tiles in amatte finish. Using Imagine Tile's patented glazing technology, the series comes alive with high-resolution imagery of used and recycled skateboard decks collected through Art of Board's "I Ride I Recycle" program. The floor collection is made with pre-consumer recycled materials, contains no VOCs and is commercially rated for indoor or outdoor use. In addition, the tiles are engineered to be extremely resistant to water, strong chemicals and fading.
"We're excited to have been able to work with Art of Board again," said Christian McAuley,president of Imagine Tile. "The larger size tile is incredibly vibrant and striking, particularly for floor applications -- we're thrilled with the result."
Art of Board gives back to various skate and surf related charities, such as the Tony Hawk Foundation and Grind For Life, as well as funding Art of Board's recycling movement called "I Ride I Recycle," which aims to empower the skateboarding community, provide a recycling solution for the industry and support skateboarding at its core.
