ruan hoffmann revisited with 'much love me'

we consider every tile a work of art, whether it be a piece of hand-chiseled zellige made from clay dried out in the sun or an intricate design hand-poured onto a cement tile, each piece is a testament to an artist of sorts.

with our artist collaborations, we have taken this craft to a new level by juxtaposing age-old traditions with modern art and design. in the case of south african artist, ruan hoffmann, his hand-drawn patterns, irregular forms and wry designs are transposed onto a natural clay body that imbue the ubiquitous tile with a poignancy and fragility that elevates it to an artful form.

we originally launched hoffmann’s limited-series of drawings with 12-inch square lithography on limestone but with this new iteration, hoffmann’s designs are revisited with a line of 6-inch square clay tiles available in three colors: sepia, delft and forest.

the 'much love me' collection is sold as a set of ten tiles - see the collection here.
