Bespoke layout: Trapeze cement tile collection from Juju Papers

Juju Papers has added a new pattern to its animated cement tile collection. Trapeze, a follow up to last year’s Fruit Salad handmade tiles, calls for rotating each tile to create a bespoke layout with every installation.

Trapeze is made by hand one at a time in Mexico. The eight-inch diameter hexagonally-shaped cement tiles sport an organic undulating wave or petal motif. Three colorways (black blue, white terra cotta and white blanc) include such hues as heather, terra cotta, military blue and coral. Colors may be customized. A low energy, no-fire process creates a washy matte finish. The Trapeze tiles interlock and swing apart.

Tile ingredients include marble dust, Portland cement, sand, mineral pigments and concrete, combined with the 1,700 PSI mechanical hydraulic press used in manufacturing. The tiles are a hefty 5/8” high, and weigh in at three pounds apiece. The wear (top) layer is a full 1/8-inch thick, making it appropriate for both floors and walls. The coefficient of friction is also well over the .42 standard, averaging in at .65, making it safe for commercial traffic and wet applications.
