MoDus Tiles Add Another Dimension to Floors and Walls

We count on furniture to explore the three-dimensional space of a room, but why not discover such potential with floor and wall coverings? MoDus Tiles by Yuri Nulman introduce a more dynamic way to clad and consider the characteristically flat elements of building interiors and exteriors with a clever system of beveled stone modules.

Each square piece of rock of sufficient thickness can be cut through to roughly half depth by a bi-directional incision. The result produces two tiles with opposing shaped faces, one with a concave diagonal crease and one with a convex ridge.

The low and high registers manufactured by Jerusalem Limestone into each pair of corners invites the possibility of arranging MoDus Tiling into a range of contemporary tectonic patterns with a rare and appealing tactility.
