An Alloy Innovation 1998
Sleek, solid and unrelentingly stylish, ALLOY tiles have changed the 'face' of mosaics by delivering the authentic, seductive sheen of metal for interior and exterior surfaces.
The metal tile of choice for leading architects and designers from around the world, ALLOY was the first and is still the only company to use a solid 1.6mm material punched from a single sheet of the highest quality metal, ensuring an unsurpassed finish that is designed to last a lifetime.
The unique ALLOY tile sheets, unlike low-grade copies, are long lasting and hardwearing and contain no backing mesh, plastic inserts or metal look-alike 'metallic' coatings so they won't dent, crack or de-laminate.
A trip to Melbourne by design director Jonathon Worner in 1998 inspired the invention of the, now much imitated, 20x20mm Mosaic solid stainless steel sheeted tiles.
"I was staying at the Adelphi Hotel, Flinders Lane and was taken with the large aluminum panel-clad façade," says Jonathon. "I then started thinking; if aluminum works in panels, how about stainless steel? And how about tiles?"
After many months of rigorous design and testing to ensure long lasting strength and durability, the ALLOY Mosaic solid stainless steel tile was complete.
The ALLOY mosaic tile range now encompasses a full range of materials including stainless steel, copper, brass, titanium, raw steel in a striking array of finishes, shapes and sizes accompanied with a full range of installation finishing pieces.
ALLOY metal tiles are highly sought after and distributed world wide, featuring in many high profile commercial and domestic interiors and exteriors.
