Concentric Rings

There have been many successful imitations of wood but Provenza‘s W-Age was the first tile I had seen (Cersaie 2010) to offer a cross-section of the trunk to display the very heart of the tree.  The design captures the concentric rings left by past years of growth.

W-Age is available in four colours (marrow, heart-wood, ring and cortex) and three sizes (150 by 900, 150 by 600 and 600 by 600mm).

β€œVenture into the allegorical forest and find yourself, certain of never getting lost again,” proclaimed Provenza’s publicity material for the new range.
