Studio Wodehouse X Bharat Floorings Pvt. Ltd In 2018 we embarked on our first product design collaboration with Bharat Floorings Pvt Ltd. Bharat Floorings specializes in creating floor and wall tiles from cement and over the years has successfully revived the yesteryear terrazzo tile trend.
The Shibori Tiles for Bharat Floorings were inspired by the forms, patterns and lines created by the unique process of Shibori from indigo dyes. This ancient Japanese form of textile dyeing was resurrected at the iconic tile maker’s factory. Studio Wodehouse dismantled the typical patterns into singular, more geometrical forms to create multiple designs for cement tiles. The tiles made use of bold “stamps” with relevance to contemporary designs and colour palettes. A neutral and pastel palette was selected to subdue the bold patterns, and allow for a soft yet ultra-modern expression on the floor canvas.
