The creation of μ

As a floor tile series designed to interact with space and time, μ [mu] cleverly responds to a setting’s changing light. The surface subtly shifts shades during the course of the day. The series is inspired by the extraordinary relationship between illumination and the colour spectrum.

The μ effect
  • As light changes, the μ surface changes too
  • The angle of viewing is essential in the overall effect created by μ’s delicate pigmentation.
  • The colour shade of the tiles ‘adjusts’ according to a coloured neighbouring wall pattern or piece of furniture.

The world of μ

Following up on extensive research on nature, ancient Greek philosophy on colour and current design trends, Mosa created its own interpretation of what colour is. The result? Contemporary ceramic surfaces with a versatile and playfully ever-changing appearance.

Different hues within a single surface. As light changes, so does the look of the floor. This leads to colour effects that are intangible and full of surprises.


Adding the fourth dimension

Mosa’s specialists studied ceramic pigments and the way they interact with each other, as well as their relationship with elements such as light, distance and angle, and coloured objects. As light changes in a room, so does the look of a μ floor, creating colour effects that are intangible and full of surprises. μ is making the most of the three-dimensional space that surrounds it, as it’s adding the fourth dimension – time – to the mix.

Refreshingly pared down

Each surface in the μ [mu] series is a combination of many different colours; an optical blend of millions of brightly tinted grains. This blend is made by mixing ceramic pigment with clay. Because of the natural falling of granulate, a vivid shading effect is ensured for each 60 × 60 centimetres tile.The tiles of this refreshingly pared down series come in four key overall neutral shades - white, light grey, grey and brown. A bespoke arrangement of different bright hues, transformed by the way they are lit, helps build μ’s identity. Distinctive, fluid, and ethereal, yet energetic.
