Mac Stopa's Pebble Collection for Mosaico Digitale is a wall tile with a tessellating star shape. The tile is made from smaller pebble-shaped forms in resin. Using a special design geometry, Mac creates a stunning organic mosaic effect achieved without any recognizable divisions between the tiles. Thanks to the new resin technology, the tile is strong, but light-weight, durable yet flexible, and gives the possibility to replicate any photographic image on the tile, including graphic designs. By changing the color of the tiles and the color of the grouting between the tiles, different graphic expressions on the finished surface may be achieved. The tiles are available in a variety of colors, including solid and mirrored, are eco-friendly and 100% water proof; a perfect solution for wall tiles in the bathroom as well as for swimming pools. One of many tile patterns that Mac designed for the collection, the Trulli pattern, exhibited during NeoCon 2015 and winner of a Best of NeoCon Gold Award, is inspired by ancient architectural Trulli symbols native to the Puglia region in Italy. The Trulli symbols digitized in a 3D wave pattern with the colors of sea anemone give the pattern a distinct Mediterranean vibe.
