Valkea ‚Äď Three- dimensional tile collection for Tulikivi Oyj


Valkea [white / fire] is a collection of ceramic tiles for Tulikivi Oyj, designed based on their brief. The surface structure of the tiles is three-dimensional. The tiles are designed for new tiled stoves, fitting for Scandinavian contemporary interiors. My aim was to create tactile and versatile surfaces.

When tiles are arranged together as surfaces, they form patterns that can be varied by rotating the tiles. Lighting has also a notable impact on the visual effect of the tile surfaces; the three dimensional pattern appears very gently in a diffused lighting or it can be striking and prominent in a spotlight.
During this process the first prototypes of six different tiles were manufactured.
