If Gemini tiles were any more achingly cool they’d come with a beard and tattoos. Here, they are declaring themselves bang on trend with the fashion for metro and industrial tiles, as part of Gemini’s new Savoy range. We’re less keen on the rectangular ones, but the hexagonal ones have a boldness and allure that we’re quite taken with – all in a strangely muted colour palette ‘inspired by earthy tones and trusty neutral combinations’ of Oat, Dew and Noir. The
tiles are finished in a sleek gloss surface to reflect the light and make them as robust as they are classic.
