Lunada Bay Tile takes inspiration from the ancient Japanese art of paper folding with the introduction of Origami glass tile. Delicate angles and subtle geometry emulate the techniques and visuals seen in the iconic art form and recreate them in glass.Lunada Bay Tile

"It takes effort, skill and time to produce a typical work of origami, and the creativity is only limited by the delicate nature of the paper you are folding," said Lunada Bay Tile Creative Director Feras Irikat. "The glass manufacturing process is similar as well; you are only limited by its delicate nature, and your skill in creating and molding it will determine the level of sophistication of the final product."

The Origami Collection comes in six distinct shapes: Ambit, Elation, Lacuna, Moxie, Trapeze and Verve. A total of 11 colors in pearl and silk finishes make up the standard collection. There are also seven hues in the Origami Glow palette that are fused with either shimmering gold or silver, which give the tiles another layer of iridescence.

"Iconic origami forms and shapes have inspired architecture, fashion and interior design," Irikat said. "Now, we are taking this inspiration to a whole new medium, which gives surfaces a futuristic and striking appeal."
