The Cover-Tiles collection started out from the concept of exposing the insides of the wall in an aesthetic way. The pipes, connections and water taps that would normally be enclosed inside the wall, are now all visible on the outside. They show the way waterlines run behind the tiles, how the raw technical system of water lines, taps, showerhead and connections works, and what it looks like. The series consists of 7 different types of 15 x 15 ceramic tiles, which cover the installation underneath. Straight tiles, curved tiles, wall plate tiles, water tap tiles, hook tiles and showerhead tiles. The tiles are available individually to create an arrangement of your own design. Of course, (pre-bended) water pipes and the interior work for showerheads can be delivered as well. The tiles are produced by Cor Unum, a leading producer of hand made ceramics for designers.
