Presidio Porcelain Mosaics
Mandala , a new collection of luxury tile from around the world and sister brand to Oceanside Glasstile, recently unveiled Presidio. Elegant in its simplicity, Presidio is an exquisite collection of handcrafted porcelain mosaics made exclusively for Mandala in Italy. Presidio porcelain mosaics are created using a proprietary process in which pigmented porcelain is extruded resulting in naturalistic mosaics featuring subtle variations in color, texture, and dimension. Presidio's color palette is soft and naturalistic, with a blended striation of values giving the look of brush strokes within each color. Presidio offers eight colors and eight blends. Presidio also features “Tribal  decorative accent tiles swirled with metallic glazes in silver or bronze tones for a beautifully textured embossed effect. Clients may also design their own custom blends. Further complementing its emphasis on texture, Presidio is available in seven patterns. Virtually maintenance-free, Presidio requires no sealant and is mesh-mounted for ease of installation. “The name Presidio evokes the rich coloring of California's early Spanish architecture, the mission period in particular. The textures and designs also reflect the rich natural history of the environments in which this new world classical architecture was established,  said Feras Irikat, Design Director. “The color palette is composed of warm earth and cool sky tones, including colors and textures reminiscent of Cirrus clouds, cultivated Bonsai trees, and the cool Mist that rolls in off the San Francisco Bay,  Irikat noted. Presidio is available in seven patterns: Mosaic, Brick, Narrow Brick, Straight Set, Basket Weave, Mission (random linear), and Eclectic (a mix of sizes). Piece thickness is 3/8 . Sheet measurements vary by pattern. Colors are Cirrus, Earth, Smoke, Bonsai, Arena, Solare, Sienna, and Mist. Blends, named for California missions, are San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, Santa Ynez, Buena Ventura, Carmel, Soledad, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz.
