The hexagonal tiles in oak veneer are custom made and used as a simple, but practical wall decoration. They were originally designed for our carpenter kitchen Ribegade, but are now produced as a stand-alone product. The hexagon tiles are popular as they are a striking change from the traditional square or rectangle tile - simply transforming the geometric shape appearing from traditional mini mosaics to a large scale format.
Hexagonfliser are created by covering a 6 mm black waterproof composite material with oak veneer. They are delivered in packages of six whole and two half tiles. The tiles are easily installed in a personal pattern and adds a creative interest to the traditional kitchen splashback.
The hexagonical tiles suit the bold graphical style of Ribegade and give a sharply defined contrast to the the charcoal grey cabinets. The owners have chosen to move the kitchen from the original location to a spacious livingroom. Having chosen to build the kitchen as a single piece of furniture - a solution that provides an intimate kitchen space and workplace. All surfaces are framed by solid oak, while oakwood veneer covers both the inside of the cabinet doors and the hexagon tiles. This consistency in material creates a kitchen with an continuous expression throughout all elements.
Everything created has been handmade by skilled cabinet makers, at a combined studio and workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark. All sharing the same interest in the traditions of the craft and a vision for making furniture to be proud of for decades to come. The close collaboration ensures innovative production and the possibility for creative solutions, even at the more advanced stages of each kitchen manufacturing project.
