Lunada Bay Tile is breaking design boundaries with Contourz, a tactile collection of concrete tile that elevates the beauty of vertical and horizontal planes. Modern shapes and colors, together with unparalleled artistry and engineering, construct dynamic surfaces for a variety of spaces. Contourz three-dimensional tiles transform walls into sculpture, while flat field tiles create an atmosphere that ranges from quiet elegance to industrial.
“Concrete is a beautiful, sustainable medium,” said Feras Irikat, director of design and marketing at Lunada Bay Tile. “The Contourz collection’s architectural nature, soft color palette and satin matte tactile surface allows it to play well with many other materials.”
Irikat worked on the collection’s design in collaboration with Carl Steadly, Lunada Bay Tile president and CEO, and Mike Taylor, an engineer with 11 years of experience in the concrete tile industry. Together, they designed and engineered the collection to the highest specifications for residential and commercial installations. The tiles measure 8 millimeters thick, extending design opportunities with the ability to combine easily with other tile collections within the Lunada Bay Tile portfolio.
Designed and manufactured in Lunada Bay Tile’s new facility in Southern California, the collection consists of nine shapes: 3x9-in. and 6x9-in. rectangular flat field tile; 4-in. hexagonal flat field tile; Fanfare Hex, a three-dimensional 4-in. hexagonal tile with raised linear peaks; Trifecta, a three-dimensional triangular tile with intertwining patterns of slopes and curved lines; Zen Break A and Zen Break B, three-dimensional 3x9-in. rectangular tiles with angled inclines that can be coordinated to create striped, diamond and chevron patterns; Retro Curve, liner featuring soft bullnose edges, and In & Out, liner featuring a bullnose edge on one side and a cove edge on the other.
Contourz is available in 18 colors, including warm and cool grays and shades of taupe and brown. The collection can be specified for interior and exterior walls, including wet/dry walls, light traffic floors, and has similar characteristics and care requirements as natural stone.
