A SPECIAL FRAME – FORMAT by Sebastian Herkner.

A system tile which is so versatile in its shape, and which can be combined in so many diverse ways.

Our FORMAT brings the classic tile up to date. With one small but expressive detail: a frame that elegantly borders the ceramic surface, thus giving the walls an accent and structure. Unlike many wall ceramics, the repeated pattern doesn’t fade into the background. The powerful contours create a glossy, free and patterned overall appearance which enticed both designer and manufacturer into an almost endless selection of shapes.


The abstraction of a classic.

The system designed by Sebastian Herkner is an abstract of the classic tile shape, and reduces this to its surface. With a finely rounded 10 mm thick frame as the element to draw your gaze, this tile gives spaces a special architectonic and graphic effect in its various sizes.


Bricks, but freestyle.

Our FORMAT can be adapted to suit your layout with an extensive mixture of rectangular formats and glazes. When viewed as a whole, you capture an aesthetic which emphasizes the horizontal-vertical grid pattern, and reminds you of brickwork structures. When mixed together, you can see straight, architectonic shapes for contemporary surfaces and spaces.
