About

This unique product has been designed and produced in Italy with the latest technology to deconstruct any digital image and print it onto resin film tiles. These lightweight, strong and conformable tiles can then be applied and grouted to any surface, reflecting the nature of a ceramic mosaic, but with limitless possibilities. Mosaico Digitale’s most impressive feature is that almost all aspects of the tile are completely customiseable; from feature image and shape to texture and install surface. Traditional mosaic tiling involves a time consuming and complex process of constructing an image from individually coloured tiles, which demands an equally time consuming and expensive install process.
Mosaico Digitale’s most impressive feature is that almost all aspects of the tile are completely customiseable
Mosaico Digitale’s innovative system takes advantage of modern printing technology to customise and construct tiles digitally – printing entire images and setting them behind a resin which forms a tile. Any photo or graphic image of your choosing may be transferred onto the resin tiles, even the shape of the tiles themselves can be changed to fit any project you have in mind. Additionally, tiles can be embellished with Swarovski, gold, coffee, mineral and decorative stones. The install process is also intelligently simple; Each tile square is numbered individually during production, allowing the tiles to be laid out in numerical order to form the whole image in preparation for tiling. The flexible nature of the tile sheets allows them to be applied to irregular surfaces including curved or round objects as well as be trimmed to fit into unusual wall or floor spaces. For the first time digital images can be tiled across anything from floor spaces and swimming pools to furniture and feature walls.
