Artesserae: Our stunning new Elba stone mosaic range
We introduce our outstanding new Artesserae range of Elba stone mosaics designed and curated by leading Melbourne-based product designer Thomas Coward. The first tile range designed and developed exclusively by Artedomus.
Artesserae is available in eight different shapes crafted from our extraordinary Elba stone, one of the most sought after stones in our range. Coveted by leading architects and designers for its cool grey tones with soft brown markings, Elba is a fine, hard Dolomite found in south-east Europe and was introduced into Australia by Artedomus more than 15 years ago. The authentic Elba is still only available exclusively through us, which is why we were able to develop this mosaic range and offer you another way to use this exquisite stone.
Yes, we love Elba for its subtle, sophisticated colour palette, but what makes this high quality stone so unique is its incredibly low porosity: there’s nothing quite like a beautiful natural product that is hard wearing, long lasting, naturally resilient and distinctly easy to live with. Plus it’s ideal for kitchen and bathroom splash backs, walls and floors.
The Artesserae range is available in: Brick, Chevron, Diamond, Herringbone, Honeycomb, Cube, Square & Wave shapes. When curating and designing the range, Thomas Coward explored a mixture of classic typographies while introducing several contemporary geometric shapes, developing a collection that spans several aesthetics.
To capture the versatility of Artesserae and each shape’s potential for unlimited creativity, Coward worked with art director & set designer Marsha Golemac and photographer Haydn Cattach to create this series of sculptural like portraits, inspired by Escher’s pencil works and their joint appreciation for brutalist architecture.
