Spotted on Instagram: 15 Creative Uses of Tile

Interior Design hosts a weekly photo contest on Instagram called #idpicks. Each Wednesday, we announce a new theme and ask our followers to tag their images with our hashtag. Here, we share the submissions that caught our eye. Make sure to check our Instagram account, @interiordesignmag, for the next topic and a chance to be featured!

This week, we asked to see images of spaces that make creative use of tile, such as the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa by Powerstrip Studio and SB Architects and the Bahia Vik José Ignacio by Marcelo Daglio Arquitectos:

Cuyperspassage in Amsterdam by @benthemcrouwelarchitects and @irma_boom_amsterdam more via link in bio . “Cuyperspassage is the name of the new tunnel at Amsterdam Central Station that connects the city and the waters of the IJ-river. Since the end of 2015 it has been used by large numbers of cyclists, some 15,000 daily, and pedestrians 24 hours a day. This ‘slow traffic corridor’ was exactly what many users of the city felt was lacking. What once was by necessity a left or right turn is now, at long last, straight ahead. The tunnel is clad on one side by nearly 80,000 Delft Blue tiles: a true Dutch spectacle at a central spot in Amsterdam.” www.bentehmcrouwel.com .
