A Tile of Two Cities: Urban Tile Collection by Photographer Peggy Wong
Explore the East and West Coasts from the comfort of your own kitchen with Urban, a new series of limited-edition tiles by photographer Peggy Wong. It’s the debut offering from PW.Travelogue, the ongoing collaboration between tile producer Clé and the founder of multi disciplinary studio Bluepoolroad.
Scouring her vast archives, Wong, who’s also a graphic and product designer, settled on seven images that celebrate the architectural character of metropolitan settings. Lithographs of those original photos have been hand-applied to premium Thassos marble, measuring 12 or 18 inches square.
Among the site-specific images: Los Angeles, featuring palm trees in the shadows of a high-rise, and New York, which hones in on the exterior of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum. Intersection shows a skyscraper behind crossed steel beams, Journey captures the view through an airplane window, and Push/Pull presents a mysterious pair of doors.
