In fact, it is the love of stone and interest in product innovation that has carried the brand to its current state. Consider the Perspective Collection from AKDO the next step in this natural development; offering fresh, modern takes on traditional mosaic themes. From contemporary geometrics, to playful takes on beloved shapes, these marble and glass mosaics showcase transitional design from a new perspective.

ETHEREAL

Otherworldly style radiates from Ethereal, AKDO’s marble and metal collection of mosaics. The contemporary, geometric patterns are created using thin pieces of inlaid metal, and the result is reminiscent of brightly shining constellations. Ethereal gives you the power to bring that same light into spaces, while maintaining a customizable design aspect thanks to a variety of striking shapes ranging from intricate stars to sleek triangles. What will you dream up next?

FABER

The Faber porcelain line from AKDO embodies the genuine comfort of wood in interiors, while offering a sleeker, more streamlined appearance than ever before. The range consists of four-foot-long planks and is available in a variety of muted colorways, for a current look that maintains the beloved natural ease of hardwood.

RENAISSANCE EXTENSION

Since its induction into AKDO’s product portfolio, Renaissance porcelain has become a surface-covering standby thanks to its bold and refined look. Showcasing patterns previously only found in the finest Italian Calacatta marble, Renaissance is a select take on natural stone in a modern and low-maintenance medium.

After such success, AKDO is introducing five new colorways in a Renaissance Extension; all of them influenced by unique and prestigious marbles. The shades include Calacatta Gold, which is inspired by its namesake stone, Charming, a mid-toned charcoal with striking movement, Impero, a pale gray with staggered veining, Marquina, a rich black with crisp veins, and Pearl, which boasts a dynamic range of gray and white linear movement. In addition to the new hues, a 24” x 24” tile has been introduced alongside the existing 12” x 24” to allow designers to create a more streamlined, luxurious feel in spaces.

ESSENCE BY YOUNG HUH

The Essence Collection of waterjet glass and stone mosaics was designed for AKDO by the inimitable Interior Designer, Young Huh. The collection finds its roots in historic global patterns, but embodies au courant design by streamlining their motifs and utilizing unexpected materials and colors. At once, the line is nostalgic and energizing.

As a designer, Young is well-versed in utilizing various sources of inspiration, including art and her love of material, in order to create timeless, yet eclectic spaces. The Essence Collection’s balanced feel remains true to that signature style; taking cues from traditional terracotta tiles of diverse origins, and interpreting them with a fresh perspective.

ELEMENTS OF NATURE

With movement as tempestuous as a thunderstorm, AKDO’s Lightning, Pitch Black and White Haze marbles create an emotional statement in spaces. The unique Angle shape further enhances the beauty of the stones by highlighting their dynamic movement. Lightning’s cool, crisp white offers spaces an understated modern refresh thanks to staggered gray veining, while the fluent, creamy tones in White Haze speaks to a transitional aesthetic. Additionally, Pitch Black’s fierce range of gray and white lend a more dramatic look to design.

KAYA: BY CLODAGH

Kaya is a collection of textured-stone subway tiles and mosaics designed in collaboration with the creative powerhouse, Clodagh.

Inspired by the underlying practices of meditation, Kaya by Clodagh was founded on the principal that all aspects of design should not only enhance spaces, but also, bring an overall sense of wellbeing to the individuals who inhabit them.

The geometry of all of the patterns is modular, and the colorways neutral, allowing the designer to create their own individual looks, while still maintaining Clodagh’s signature “Life Enhancing Minimalism”.

IMPRESSIONS: BY MATTHEW QUINN

AKDO has partnered with renowned kitchen and bath designer Matthew Quinn to create his first ever collection of tiles, Impressions. The Impressions Collection is comprised of ceramic subway tiles in four unique textures, each of which mimics Matthew Quinn’s most beloved design materials: hammered metal, linen, grasscloth, and combed fabric.

Impressions is also available in a beautiful range of colors, which were handpicked by Matthew Quinn based on their ability to perfectly complement any imaginable kitchen, bar, or bath style. Spaces will be given a fresh look with Cloud, Spring Rain or Breeze, while Silver and Gold will perfectly complement existing fixtures to create a cohesive look. For spaces that demand a bolder touch, there’s Tidal; a trendsetting rich teal inspired by the spellbinding ocean surrounding Key West, where Matthew Quinn grew up.

No matter where Impressions is used, the resulting look is sophisticated and transitional, with nuanced visual and textural depth.

ETERNITY REVAMP

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 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.
