Kaza Concrete‘s new Mystile collection of contemporary artistic wall and floor surfacing uses a “reengineered” fiber-reinforced concrete shaped by meticulously handmade molds. Crisp, by designer Levi Fignar, was developed out of the designer’s interest in polygonal architecture. Crisp is a collection of wavelike concave and convex tiles with a faceted face of small triangles that capture the light and animate the entire surface. The Button collection, by Codolagni Design Studio, looks like a stretchable rubber sheet that has been pulled taut against a wall of raised knobs. Other designers who have collaborated with Kaza include Erica Wakerley, a specialist in modern surface design for interiors, Marco Piva, an Italian architect, interior designer, and product designer, and Kirath Ghundoo, a surface pattern and wallpaper designer.

I took some video at Kaza Concrete’s booth at 100% Design during the London Design Festival. Look how the faceted face of the Crisp tiles become animated with light.
