Theia + Studiopepe Team Up to Design Mar Di Tiles

We have a fresh tile collection to share with you today: Mar Di. Portuguese brand Theia created the four tile designs in collaboration with Studiopepe, inspired by the motion of the sea and its waves. It’s a theme of travel and exploration, and the surface of each design responds differently when light hits them. The colors and shapes chosen for the Mar Di Flores, Mar Di Banda, Mar Di Giava, and Mar Di Kara tiles are punchy and lively, adding to the collection’s personality.

Theia has a continuously growing collection of handmade tiles that work really well for contemporary surfaces. Their tiles are designed by the studio and sometimes in collaboration with other designers, such as Studiopepe. Each tile is crafted out of earthenware, a simple eco-friendly material. The earthenware is pressed, fired, and painted, using ancient techniques that result in a truly unique product.
