With fully fluted strips as well as transitional pieces and colourful field tiles, Contour offers the ability to create a sense of movement and fluidity and experiment with the transitional pieces to provide a smooth flow from the field tiles into the full contoured strips.
With surface detail continuing to push the boundaries across all aspects of interiors to evoke a layered aesthetic and the desire to touch, Contour brings dimension to the fore. The striking shaped pieces embody this with elements of concertina folds, Japanese panelling, and origami folding to bring depth and interest to any interior space.
