Glass Tiles by Alessandro Mendini

Modern glass tiles designed by Alessandro Mendini are now available in a rainbow of colors.  We always wanted to make a little modernist glass block house and these glass blocks are just the thing we need.  We love these ultra modern colored glass block tiles; it is easy to imagine making a super minimal modern glass house with these. I am already imagining myself creating a modernist glass cube, a color therapy meditation room, perhaps in one single color, with these modernist glass tiles.

The Mendini glass tile collection was designed by Alessandro and Francesco Mendini. Each glass tile block is handcrafted by Seves in Florence Italy. There are 16 colors in the Mendini glass tile range. This wonderful range of modern glass tile blocks was inspired by nature and conceived to introduce new visual nuances and sensations in contemporary home interiors. According to its creators, the "Mendini Glass Tile Block Collection", with its shiny and youthful colors, has been designed to enable glass tile blocks to generate chromatic and figurative arrangements suited for elegant and refined combinations. The color alphabet of the Mendini Collection gives individually chosen colors, and their relationships and variations, the possibility to create endless chessboards of variants, from single colors up to kaleidoscopic effects. So far, sensuality, conceptuality, symbolism, hedonism and emotions are parameters that have been missing from the geometric language of glass tile blocks.

The Mendini glass tiles open up new poetic horizons that architects have not been taken into account so far. However, they are now available and they are truly fascinating. New sparkling presences like sapphires, topazes, amber and ruby. And it is because of this rich appeal of nature that each color in this new glass tile block collection has been given the expressive name of a precious stone.
