The LiLi Tile Team partnered with Italian Designer Francesco Roggero and the Italian Studio Original Designers 6R5 Network to create the Milano Style Collection. The Italian Studio Original Designers 6r5 Network team has over five decades of experience studying surfaces and patterns — sharing the same love of color, pattern, and feel as the LiLi Team. For the Milano Style Collection, we sought to combine the high fashion design Milan is known for with the durability of our Vietnamese-made cement. The result is a gorgeous and durable line of 5 new designs in 10 stunning color variations.
Hydraulic pressed, handmade cement tiles with a color layer of 1/8" thickness adhered to body of the tile using 1800 PSI. Composed of Portland cement, marble dust, and mineral pigments.
