Our designer, Karin Jeske, shares some of her favorite random tile patterns from the exclusive Tesselle Cement Tile Collection.
Author's note: this article is updated periodically as we add new random patterns to our collections.
At Tesselle, we have a special interest in making cement tiles that can be laid out in random patterns that can create magical, non-repeating designs across your surface. Sometimes the purpose is to create an unexpected effect, other times this technique is used to mimic nature. This is accomplished by rotating the tiles randomly across the surface with respect to their orientation toward one another as is demonstrated in this video featuring Geometricks Cement Tiles.
We also find that when we start with the idea of randomness, the resulting tile will create a better design when laid out in a repeating fashion. As we travel the world, we are excited to see the use of randomness in many applications in interiors and architecture. Below, we share some of our favorite Tesselle cement tile designs from our exclusive collection in creative, random layouts - each of these covers a 32"x32" area.
Above: Geometricks Biscayne Cement Tiles in a random layout. We love the varied shapes and and serpentine lines created when a random layout is chosen. Architect Michael Hsu chose this pattern in a random layout when he designed the Oporto Restaurant in Houston. Order a sample.
Above: Baskerville Cashmere Cement Tiles in a random layout. This design can also be laid out in a classic houndstooth pattern, or in layouts that create a variety of different geometric patterns. Order a sample.
Above: Facets Reflection Hexagonal Cement Tiles in a random layout was inspired by the a sparkling cut diamond, and the pattern matches up regardless of how the tiles are oriented with respect to one another. Order a sample.
