Depicting Dutch skies, the designers draw attention to the urgent message about air quality.
With the same goal, the designers have already developed a porcelain tableware glazed with particulates from various world cities.
Design-research and tradition
With Royal Tichelaar, design and tradition are united in the creation of a new series of tiles.
The most traditional tile, the Makkumer white, was chosen as their starting point. This 13 x 13 cm tile has been produced by Royal Tichelaar with their local clay for over 450 years. Over a white tin-glazed body the master painters put their well-known blue scenes, made with cobalt oxide.
In this research this process is studied with alternative resources.
