Our latest innovations in tile and stone.
Having initially launched in 2014, AKDO’s bestselling Allure collection has since found its way into both high profile designer show houses and editorial pages alike. After such a remarkable reception and widespread success, it was only natural that the next step be to expand the collection. While staying true to what originally inspired Allure, the latest additions each bring unique enhancements to the existing collection portfolio.
Thassos with micro tesserae of Shell showcases hand-cut mother of pearl pieces, creating a feminine, graceful and luxurious feel. The two new linear stone colorways, Ash Gray and Cream Taupe, add a contemporary, cool twist to geometric patterns; the striated veining creates a more dynamic, modern look. These mosaics are sure to add style and individuality to any space.
The Eternity Collection, originally introduced in 2009, has grown to become one of AKDO’s most classic mosaic designs. Interlocking circles create endless patterns, and a timeless, serene feel. The circular patterns were inspired by the mathematical symbol of infinity and evoke a knot, which in many cultures represents the continuity of love and life.
This year, we are proud to announce its relaunch in new modern gray and white colorways, with incorporating water jet and glass accents. The patterns have also been reworked to interlock seamlessly, resulting in the look of a mosaic field installed entirely by hand. Enjoy the rejuvenation of an eternal classic.
Our latest fashion-forward foray into marble mosaics, the Luminous Collection, gives fan-favorite luxury materials a distinguished charm. A range of finishes mingles with trending geometric shapes and crisp lines to provide playfully rich textures. The predominantly clean, white palette introduces nuanced pops of metallic and different surface finishes to a variety of the available color ways. Luminous is a modern, marble-meets-metals collection with textural depth that will lend an inimitably personal look.
With a nod to the tailored feel of menswear, our Room line of porcelain and ceramic tile utilizes the texture of fine fabrics to add warmth and softness to hard surfaces. Trending haberdashery patterns are showcased in a neutral palette, ranging from warm to cool, with the perfect assortment of white, beige and gray. The large format tiles enhance the clean lines of modern spaces, while creating a comfortable, intimate feel. The rectified and color-body porcelain floor tiles are matched with a variety of complementary ceramic wall tiles in patterns and three-dimensional decos. Use them to create bespoke tailored design in refined residential and commercial settings.
For over 25 years, AKDO has provided discerning designers, architects and consumers with some of the most beautiful, high-quality materials. Today, AKDO is proud to introduce Renaissance, a beautiful and select take on natural stone in porcelain tile. Renaissance creates a look that is bold yet refined. Its veining offers a wonderfully nuanced range of grays on a white background. The result creates unique patterns previously found only in the finest Italian Calacatta marble.
Renaissance delivers a timeless beauty conceived for all interior applications-bath suites, spas, retail settings, office headquarters and in return, creates environments remarkable for their fresh yet classic aesthetic. Use it to create an emotional statement that once was possible only with marble.
Thanks to the ongoing and ever increasing popularity of gray for interiors, this beautiful mid-gray stone joins our Stone Essentials collection. A great complement to the gray veined white stones, the paler grays, and also sublime on its own, Turkish Gray is now stocked in all of the many shapes and sizes offered in our Essentials line.
Inspired by the woven wonders of fine textiles, the Textile Glass mosaic collection is a shimmery mix of delicate matchsticks in blends of clear and frosted glass. These micro batons of glass have a unique glow because of their diminutive shape, which lets light pour in and bounce back, reflecting the changing light of the day or the room lighting.
When you’re looking for a sleek expanse of floor or wall, try WIDE. Our new Italian porcelain is available in a variety of large format sizes, making it equally suitable for residential settings and high traffic commercial environments. The five sophisticated colors have a contemporary feel, with movement best described as a hybrid of natural slate and concrete, overlaid with a subtle textile graphic.
Exclusively from AKDO comes a brand new line of ceramic tile in colors and shapes that perfectly complement our stones, glass and mosaics, so you can enjoy one-stop shopping with total confidence. In five soft, delicate shades, the translucent glaze of our Essential Ceramic ebbs and flows beautifully along the tile surface to create lovely and extremely subtle variation over a pure white clay body. Suitable for all vertical indoor surfaces, this is ceramic tile with the AKDO touch.
Talk about being in great shape! AKDO is introducing new mosaic shapes in our popular Signature Glass. Ranging in style from crisply geometric to alluringly sinuous and offered in a sparkling clear finish or a timely texture mix of clear and frosted finishes, these new options will add fun, new possibilities to designing with AKDO’s Signature Glass.
Two new, versatile colors join our Origin ceramic tile collection for 2016 and beyond. Misty Gray and Sky Blue complement the other colors in the series and are also designed to mix with dozens of other AKDO offerings in stone and glass. They join Birch White, Ash, and Black for a robust selection of ceramic neutrals.
Taking inspiration from the ancient Japanese art form of paper folding and the 3-D shapes it produces, AKDO’s Origami collection fuses geometry and nature. Origami is marble, expertly cut so that the veining on each piece aligns perfectly to create a mesmerizing folding illusion. Offered in eight patterns and three colors of natural stone.
The newest additions to Stone Essentials (our most popular natural stones) have been crafted into new tile profiles and mosaic configurations to mix and blend with those same stones already offered in slab, tile and trim. Delve into Stone Essentials and see the myriad options for whole-room, one-stop shopping in the core stone of your choice. It’s like having your cake and eating it, too.
