Individual pick No. 19 "Urban Soviet" tile

Regular price €8,00

Project description: 

In Lithuania, we often see public spaces neglected. A lot of people live in the cleanest apartments but once they step outside the situation changes. Stairwells, yards, and other public spaces are often ignored and not looked after. For this reason, we have decided to balance these daily surroundings and introduced the outside to the inside. A classic look of local facades were chosen. Photos were taken in a local neighborhood and transformed into blocks. For different cultures and history experiences, people will look at this project differently, but for us it is our usual facades that we grew up with. These building were built during the Soviet Occupation and are becoming extinct with the EU sponsored renovation projects, but we still have proper time to say goodbye. Not to neglect, but just to accept all, and move forward to a better and more optimistic tomorrow.

Specifications:

Ceramic tiles have smooth matt-satin surface and will produce a better visual quality. It is also lightweight (cheaper shipping) and purposed only for wall decoration. Stone mass tiles have a rough textured surface, can be used also on floors and are more bulletproof (better abrasion and impact resistant). 

  • Image is printed using direct UV printing method
  • Can be used indoors and outdoors
  • UV resistant, scuff and scratch resistant, water and fade proof - for normal daily use that is. UV printing is not as strong as a more traditional and more expensive Kiln Fired tiles or ceramic pigment printing
  • Middle solution for price and practicality. Just to bear in mind, these tiles are more for decorative purposes, not for deep scrubbing or swimming pools. Durable enough to be used for shower walls or as a kitchen backsplash.
  • Stone mass tiles can be 95% flat, there is some play when placed on smooth surface.

Cleaning:

We recommend to clean our tiles with a non-abrasive cleaner and soft cloth. Do not use aggressive cleaners like commercial tile cleaners, commercial fungicides, chlorine, bleach, abrasive cleansers, detergent, ammonia or petroleum etc.
