Ceramic tiles: Ka-nū from Lunada Bay Tile

Lunada Bay Tile has launched a new ceramic collection called Ka-nū.

Named after the Japanese word for canoe, the Ka-nū collection comprises three architecturally dimensional surfaces: Keel, a canoe-shaped tile with a raised center; Plank, a rectangular field tile; and Buoy Mosaic, a round tile with a single dimple.

Lunada Bay Tile implemented a specialized glazing process to create pearlized colors with luster. According to Feras Irikat, director of design and marketing at Lunada Bay Tile, Japanese artisans combined centuries-old techniques, which include a double-firing process, with modern invention to create this pearlized glaze.
