Overview

Walk into a bar or restaurant in Barcelona and chances are that you will encounter a beautiful tile pattern on the floor. In the late 19th century, mass reproduction of intricately designed floor tiles became possible, and they became a common feature in the interiors of buildings in cities all around the Mediterranean. In Barcelona, the design of such tiles reached its peak in the age of 'Modernismo', the Spanish variety of Art Nouveau, in the early 20th century. BARCELONA TILE DESIGNS features a colourful collection of carefully restored and digitized designs. Both single tiles and whole patterns and borders are shown, and the files on the CD make it possible to create designs in any shape and size. A great resource for design professionals and hobbyists alike.
