Pico tile collection

Pico is a tile collection conceived by French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Italian ceramics company Mutina. Composed of compressed sand and mixed minerals, the series maintains the rawness of handmade cement and traditional earth floors, letting the materials convey their natural characteristics.

Starting with neutral base shades of white, grey, and sand, the matte surfaces have depth from an irregular pattern of either inverted or elevated dots. Tones of red and blue can be applied as little dots in the hollows to make the tiles colder or warmer in tone. Also contrasting dotted relief tiles on vertical surfaces with indented dots on horizontal surfaces, or vice versa, can lead to interesting effects.

Kenneth Grange Parking Meter

The great thing about Kenneth Grange’s classic parking meter was that, like all good pieces of functional design, it became part of the landscape, blending into invisibility until you parked your car alongside and were required to use it.

A retrospective of Grange’s work, Kenneth Grange: Making Modern Britain, is currently showing at the Design Museum in London.
