Stephen Lindsay has been working on the launch of these fascinating tiles made of walnut, plaster, and concrete. Dune tiles are eight inches square and protrude about two inches from the wall surface. Theyâ€™re distributed through urbanproduct (though the company is looking for U.S. distributors) and made with natural pigments and a soya-based finish.
Lindsay tells us the gypsum and concrete versions cost anywhere from $18 to $30 Canadian, while the wood version is more expensive due, in part, to higher cost manufacturing requirements.
The 3D tiles can be arranged to create a dramatic indoor or outdoor wall. Lindsay makes the gypsum and wood tiles by hand, while Evergreen Cast Stone makes the concrete ones. Lindsay is also experimenting with a Dune tile made with waste coffee grounds from a local cafe.
