Walker Zanger Time Travels With Swinging ’70s Tile Collection by Pietta Donovan
It’s unlikely that Pietta Donovan remembers the psychedelic trappings of the swinging ’70s—she was born in the decade. But subliminal forces must be at work as the principal of her namesake design firm unveils her handmade tile collection for Walker Zanger. She embraces the kaleidoscopic palettes and exuberant geometry of the period in a series sparked by tessellation. The tiles combine versatile shapes designed to be connected, flipped, turned, or repeated into custom configurations. Curvy Buderim is among the matte cement options; ceramic varieties include trapezoidal Bronte, argyle Maroubra, and the mosaic maze of Zed.
