Mosa Enlivens University Buildings With Sleek Porcelain Tile

Gonzaga University Student Union. Opsis Architecture specified Mosa’s Terra Tones collection for the building.

Discerning architects and designers, who keep sustainability at the forefront of every project, have specified Mosa’s state-of-the-art porcelain tiles for high-profile projects in the education sector. Mosa’s top-notch craftsmanship results in tiles that excel in slip-resistance and chair drag and can sustain heavy traffic—a particularly important quality for busy student centers, classrooms, and libraries. Below, see how three leading architecture firms specified Mosa tiles inside university buildings.

Carnegie Mellon University

CannonDesign specified Mosa’s Terra Tones and Terra Maestricht tiles for a lounge area at Carnegie Mellon University’s Cohon Center. Terra Tones consist of a subtle palette of light, medium, and dark shades, while Terra Maestricht features earthy hues with vibrant color gradations.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology


For corridors and other circulation areas inside MIT’s Department of Economics, Beyer Blinder Belle looked to Mosa’s Terra Greys and Terra Maestricht series. The natural matte finish of Terra Greys creates a durable flooring solution and draws subtle attention to combinations of different tile sizes.

Yale University

When designing public spaces such as a cafe and atrium at Yale University’s School of Management, Foster + Partners used Mosa’s Quartz collection. With an earthy appearance and nuances of color, the Quartz collection reflects pure ceramic in the natural striations of sandy-looking grains and understated crystal-like particles.
