At a party this week to kick off ICFF, one of my fave showrooms–Nemo Tile–was kind enough to highlight my book alongside their intriguing new product intros. This was quite a thrill for me, as Nemo was the first showroom I photographed for the book; many of the 1,500 tiles featured within are theirs. Even after the shoot wrapped, VP/technical whizz Matt Karlin and A&D sales rep extraordinaire Raymond Moore were nice enough to field my near-constant calls for advice and information about all things tile-related. (Thanks, guys!)
The last few times I’ve visited Nemo’s website, this product flashed up. My response: !!!!!!!! A quick email confirmed that this is a new coconut mosaic product, Membira, from Brazilian company Ekobe. Loooooooove.
Heading to ICFF tomorrow to check out Nemo’s all-white (!) booth–dying to see.
