The Phenomenon series consists of through-body porcelain tiles (Hexagon), as well as extruded ceramic mosaics (Air, Rain, Honeycomb, Rock and Wind). Designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, the collection is consistent with many of his other works – toeing the line between industrial design and art. In collaboration with Mutina, Yoshioka designed tiles reminiscent of textures derived from nature, with the intention no so much to mimic these inherent patterns, but as to awaken the sensations they stir in us. The series recalls a number of patterns found in nature, such as honeycombs, icicle formations and plant cells, thus bringing to mind our individual experiences of the natural world.

About Tokujin Yoshioka

Tokujin Yoshioka, a native of Japan and a winner of numerous awards. His work can be found in the permanent collections of museums worldwide, including those at the MoMA and the Cooper Hewitt in New York, the Victoria & Albert in London and the Vitra Design Museum. Tokujin Yoshioka trained along with Shiro Kuramata and Issey Miyake, and opened his own studio in 2000. He has worked with Japanese and international companies such as Hérmes, Toyota, BMW and Swarovski, designing showrooms and installations. As a result of the success of the Honey-pop paper chair in 2001, he began delving into the world of interior design, developing projects for Driade, Moroso and Kartell, amongst others. The signature feature of his creations is their poetic, light, dreamlike quality; his products, interiors and installations are the result of painstaking, complex research carried out on simple materials, combined with experimental technology. The awards he has received include Design Miami/Designer of the Year 2007, the Wallpaper* Design Award 2008, Elle Decoration International/Designer of the Year 2009, Elle Decoration International/Decoration Design Award 2011, A&W Architektur & Wohnen/Designer of the Year 2011 and Maison & Objet/Creator of the Year 2012.

  • Protection Color Enhancing: Not Applicable
  • Standard Maintenance: Fila Cleaner
  • Special Maintenance: Fila PS/87
ABRASION RESISTANCE

High

This material has relatively high abrasion resistance. It rates as a 7 or higher on the Mohs scale. Quartzite or granite typically fall into this range. This material is less likely to scratch than marble, limestone, onyx, slate, etc.

ABSORPTION

Low

This material is virtually non-porous. No sealer is required and it is less likely to stain.

ACID SENSITIVITY

Minimal

This material is minimally sensitive to acids. It will not acid etch or lose its surface sheen when exposed to acidic liquids such as lemons or tomatoes.

FREEZE-THAW

Vertical Exteriors

Due to this material's texture, its Abrasion Resistance rating, color fastness and tensile strength, this material is suitable for vertical exterior applications where freeze-thaw cycles are a concern. Use TCNA standards for setting in exteriors and consult an engineer regarding fastening systems and tensile strength required for your project. This material is not suitable for exterior paving applications.
