Context is a dry-press porcelain tile expertly fabricated by Japanese artisans exclusively for Ann Sacks. Joining the earlier palette of Gloss White or Matte White finishes is a deep, rich black metallic glaze. Additionally, a gently pillowed mosaic was designed, giving textural effect to a wall. The mosaic is available in the new metallic black (pictured) as well as the Gloss White or Matte White. Context is available as a flat or pillowed 1 3/4-x 1 3/4-inch mosaic or in 1 3/4-x 5 1/2- and 1 3/4-x 11-inch fields with a variety of trims -- making it ideal for large installations.
Primarily developed for indoor vertical applications, the matte finish is also suitable for light use on floors, while the mosaics are perfect for curved walls. Tiles in the Context Collection are frost proof -- allowing them to work for certain exterior installations, subject to moderate climate and method of installation.
