Surface is Paris’ specialist tile shop. Its contemporary collection comes mostly from Italian suppliers, leaders in the world of ceramics. The shop has the most beautiful mosaics on show, plain or patterned and in many formats, industrial or handnished and always modern. Also on show is a collection of natural materials including stone, marble, slate and wood. One collection called XXL-SLIM offers stoneware tiles that are beautifully ne and generous in dimension. Also here are the Mutina collections for which Inga Sempé, Ronan et Erwan Bouroullec, Konstantin Grcic, Barber Osgerby, and Patricia Urquiola were able to combine traditional know- how and innovative technology.
