Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum has expanded its permanent collection of tiles by introducing 26 new glazes.
The company has reached a unique international position in the development of special glazes. Against the background of what the market currently offers, our glazes distinguish themselves by their rich shades of colour and exceptional textural effects. These results have been achieved using natural pigments and combinations of minerals in the manual production process. Architects and designers are showing increasing interest in our products, chiefly for their visual appeal and such durable properties as colour permanence and ease of maintenance.
For this series we have taken inspiration from the company archives and have developed 26 colours ranging from iridescent white, through transparent green and deep taupe, to a deep dark gold effect. As far as their format is concerned, we have chosen 13 x 13 cm, the same as the celebrated ‘witjes’ (white tiles) we have been producing since the 17th century. This new series of 26 eye-catching glazes can be used both indoors and outdoors and can be delivered from stock.
