Aimée Wilder’s Apparel Expertise Informs Her Apogee Floor and Wall Tile Collection
There’s good reason these patterns seem chic enough to wear. Early gigs for lifelong New Yorker Aimée Wilder included designing apparel for Vans and Gap, which has informed the graphic, runway-ready aesthetic of the wallpapers, fabrics, and rugs she’s been creating since 2009, when she founded her namesake home-furnishings studio. Now, with Apogee, Wilder is onto yet another medium: floor and wall tiles. Five patterns center on waveforms, from sea to sound, in terrazzo, matte-cement, or ceramic, and five additional tiles are solid or split-color to create variation in layouts. Myriad sizes are available too, including an 8-inch square (Mamba, Wavey), 8-by-16-inch rectangle (Timewave), and 8-by-9-inch hexagon (Moon Phases).
