He’s been on our radar as a master of colour with a rich imagination full of design delights. Though tiles have featured in his murals and thoroughout his vision for the future of town halls, there haven’t been any official Adam Nathaniel Furman tiles… until now.
In a collaboration with Botteganove, Furman’s New Town collection pairs vibrant, playful shades with a textured mix and match patchwork. Reds, greens, blues, and a selection of pastels feature in dots and geometric shapes that make for a decorative, speckled surface.
Inspired by aerial views Edinburgh New Town and Georgian Bath as well as the unusual flooring of the Fondazione Querini Stampalia by Carlo Scarpa, New Town beautifully blends British and Italian design with subtle references.
Countless combinations and compositions can be created by mixing shades and colour families. Various groved surfaces add relief whilst a smooth, glossy finish offers another dimension.
