the architect's palette is an edited collection of elongated planks of terracotta tile. coated in a silky matte finish, these hand-hewn tiles are made of traditional, rustic Italian clay and are available in four architect-honed hues.
the traditional "listello" shape was typically used in italy as a border, but this elongated form is now being used as a field tile. its linear shape is easily converted to an elevated herringbone, stack, and subway pattern and can be used on walls, wet spaces, and floors with low traffic. over time the tile can develop a crackled patina typical of time-worn italian tile.
