Inspired by architect Antoni Gaudí’s mosaic tile from the year 1906, this minimalist concrete paving slab is also innovative and hexagonal in shape. Two optical dummy joints divide the tile into three sections, one of which is characterised by a precise groove structure. This produces a noticeable, dark shadow effect. The main slab, with its symmetrical design, is complemented by two additional slab formats. Together, the slabs can be used to compose a large variety of different effects by orienting them in different ways.
Statement by the Jury
The design of the DEDALE concrete paving slab aims to offer versatility. It is also notable for its fascinating appearance.
