Customers’ quest for home décor has witnessed decorative tiles, mosaics and special tile pieces as an attractive and durable material that adds value to the living space.
From a small factory in Koedoespoort on the eastern outskirts of Pretoria, a magnificent selection of decorative tiles is being manufactured at Studio Del Mei, using sophisticated machinery to provide top-quality products aimed at enhancing any wall or floor tiling installation.
Studio Del Mei has strived to become an innovator and design leader in the ceramic industry. As the business has grown from strength to strength, there was a need for an increase in production. This was carried out by installing three automatic printing lines and two fast firing kilns, which are used to supply most of the local retail outlet clientele.
The company draws on its rich African heritage and the classical fine art training of its designers to produce an extensive range of borders, ethnic and classical, for floor and wall tiles that vary from the exotic to the contemporary, graceful adaptations of floral motifs and abstract patterns inspired from nature, vintage embroidery and contemporary art, enhancing the elegance of interiors and exteriors.
The wide range of sizes, and rich, colourful, sparkling reflections of light created with these special tiles, give the possibility of countless compositions.
The standard Tozzetto tiles comprise 24 standard colours made in a uniform size of 100mm x 100mm and 5,5mm thick. However, there is a beautiful selection of designs in the Tozzetto range that are made on request with different finishes that include structured gloss, structured matt, pyramid, lines and circles, made to order, minimum order a quantity of 20m².
“We offer a specialised design style that is equal to anything produced elsewhere in the world, and our manufacturing processes meet the stringent standards and quality applied in the sophisticated European markets,” says Studio Del Mei.
The company has a comprehensive permanent display housed at its showroom in Koedoespoort, and offers a design service to architects and interior designers. Most of Studio Del Mei’s tiles are made to order, which ensures colour consistency during the manufacturing and firing.
