Digital Ceramics Custom Tiles ‘dive’ into new Belgium project

Digital Ceramics Custom Tiles ‘dive’ into new project in Belgium!

We’ve recently completed a fantastic project in Belgium, which involved us sourcing specific bespoke tiles and printing them with bold designs. The nature-inspired patterns were conceived by renowned Belgian artist, Robin Vermeersch and look superb installed as part of a private swimming pool construction.

Xavier Glorieux, Managing Director of Ceci n’est pas un piscine by Xterior originally approached Digital Ceramics Custom Tiles to supply large 40 x 40cm tiles to minimise the interruption of grouting lines to the pattern. He chose DCCT, despite the distance and travel constraints, because of our long-standing experience with artists and input on bespoke projects, worldwide.

The artist produced two complete patterns of three colours, deep green, pale red and white. Each design required 8 tiles to complete one entire pattern, however the tiles could be laid in any order and still blend seamlessly together.

Xavier had partnered with Robin on his projects for some time, so trusted him to produce a design that would remain timeless. This, combined with our state-of-the-art printing technology means that the pool tiles will remain vivid.

The brief from Xavier’s client was to incorporate inspiration from natural elements that could be arranged to create multiple possibilities.

Xavier said: “The rippling pool water makes the undulating pattern even more complex. Despite the smooth surface of the tile, the design emulates an energetic, weathered surface.

“We were so pleased with the quality outcome, as we expected from Digital Ceramics Custom Tiles, as our private customers can pay up to 90,000 euros for a pool project like this one.

“Mark Wood, Director at DCCT was tremendously accommodating and was very knowledgeable when it came to discussing the project initially and when it came to challenges when installing the tiles.

“Our client required the edges of the pool steps to be curved. Mark and his team sourced the perfect tile and printed the design across the rounded edge which looks effective and allowed us to fulfil the brief entirely.”

The pandemic presented its own set of challenges for Xavier and our team as communications predominantly had to be via Zoom. We were in fact able to develop a strong relationship with our client, despite the global circumstances.

We’re very much looking forward to visiting Xavier in Belgium to discuss the next project soon!
