Bharat Floorings & Tiles Reveals Hexagonal Collection by Ashwin Mallya
Convinced India would only achieve economic independence through innovation, lawyer Pherozesha Sidhwa left the profession in 1922 to launch Bharat Floorings & Tiles. Nearly a century later, the company has cultivated devotees worldwide for its handcrafted cement tiles. That history of invention continues as designer Ashwin Mallya unveils Kona, a family of elongated hexagonal tiles for the floor or wall named after the Sanskrit word for angle. The 5-by-10-inch tiles can be ordered in 28 colors, from Crazy Green to Nursery Pink, or combinations thereof. Among the patterns are Half & Half, the field rendered in striped or diagonal formats; triangular Twin Peaks; and the concentric-band Stepwell.
