Tile trends: Hexagon Tiles


The hexagon tile takes inspiration from Roman and Moorish patterns and designs.  Today’s modern interpretation on this age-old style takes in regard the old and makes it new by embracing modern colours and effective decorative patterns.

Excitement has grown around this 6 sided geometric pattern that moves away from the traditional square tile format. From ceramic to natural stone to highly textured reliefs and 3-D profiles the hexagon trend shows no sign of waning.

Further confirmation showing that this trend is here to stay for the long haul was verified at the recent Cersaie Tile Fare in Italy. (Cersaie is an annual Tile Fare that dictates and influences forecasts in tile trends from around the world).

Bisazza, (amongst other prolific companies)  known for their trailblazing designs, released a cement tile collection collaborating with some of the top interior designers of the world including Jaime Hayon, Paola Navone and Carlo Dal Bianco. The new collection includes exquisite patterns and colours with many designs on the humble hexagon format.
