A touch of class
S OLUS CERAMICS has been specified at the Be at One cocktail bar in Birmingham with the installation of its Opulence and Program floor and wall tile ranges.
Fusion Design and Architecture, who have worked with the brand for eight years, designed the venue.
Solus Ceramics were thrilled once again to collaborate with Fusion Design and Architecture and supplied a variety of tile ranges to the bar. The venue features various traditional style tiles from the Opulence range.
Tiles from the Opulence range were selected in two sizes to create a banded pattern and were paired with a décor tile.
On the bar front, the designers selected a hand-made hexagon tile in emerald.
In the men’s bathrooms, marble-effect tiles from the Palace range were used on the walls and paired with plain grey tiles from the Program range that were laid in a herringbone pattern. Solid grey, glass mosaics from the Glass Source range completed the space. Featuring similar tiles to the adjacent men’s bathrooms, a pink mosaic was installed in the ladies’ bathrooms.
Jonathan Richardson, associate at Fusion Design and Architecture, said: ‘One of the key aspects of the brief was to implement a design aesthetic that would be timeless. We specified Solus Ceramics’ Opulence range not only for its aesthetic appeal, but also because of its durability.
‘With the bar at basement level, there isn’t any natural light, so it was vitally important for us to implement bright and bold tiles to bring colour into the room. The Opulence range complements the décor of the bar.’
Michael Irvine, area sales manager at Solus Ceramics, said: ‘Using various relatively traditional ranges, the designers have created something very unique, modern and interesting.’
