Collaboration is key in 2016, and true to that trend Oceanside Glasstile and Island Stone launch their new marriage of glass and stone. Anchored in beach culture and driven by a passion to create beautiful designs, the two companies pair the best of their offerings to create one stunning collection. Using four natural stones – grey sandstone, mint sandstone, silver quartzite, and white marble – Oceanside Glasstile adds their molten magic to the union. The result? A beautiful Kinship of stunning stone and jewel like glass that will have you wanderlust for all corners of the great Pacific.
Drawing inspiration from the coastal bluffs and epic point breaks of these kindred spirit’s backyards, Kinship’s Crescent piece has inspired two new patterns. Converge features a gentle cascade of pieces, while Lineage mimics the mild rise and fall of an ocean’s swell. Fully customizable with the entire Oceanside Glasstile palette, the Converge and Lineage patterns will also feature mint sandstone, grey sandstone, and silver quartzite.
Inspired by the subtle sand dunes of Indonesia’s cascading beaches, the Wedge piece offers an understated dimension with its gentle slopes and rounded edges. With two new fully customizable patterns, Origin and Unison stand in opposition. Where Origin offers a random pattern, Unison offers harmony through a timeless linear placement. Whatever your design goals may be, the new Origin and Unison patterns are available in the entire Oceanside Glasstile color palette, as well as, white marble, silver quartzite, or grey sandstone.
Kinship’s third and final new pattern, Abode, is a nod to the timeless nature of an offset brick. Featuring a 1 1/4” x 4 1/8” mosaic rectangle, Abode is fully customizable with all four new stones and the entire Oceanside Glasstile color palette. Abode captures your eye through free-flowing movement of glass to stone, providing added flexibility to this collection’s design opportunities.
Oceanside Glasstile wanted to ensure Kinship was not only beautiful, but also easy to install. The dimensional pieces have a robust paint on the back, which is precision mounted with mesh and glue. This mounting system opens up their entire color palette – translucent and opaque – to the Kinship Collection. Enjoy ultimate design freedom with Kinship at the helm.
“Cheers!” It’s the first word Oceanside Glasstile products hear before beginning their journey to up-cycled glory! Each year they melt more than 2 million pounds of post-consumer bottle glass. The result – a gem-like substance crafted into stunning glass tile. They continuously strive for improvements in energy efficiency, and maintain a closed loop manufacturing process where they re-melt all of their own glass trimmings. Manufacturing innovative products with a sustainable process is an important business value, but . . . that’s just where the fun begins. Encouraged by the leadership of the company, Oceanside Glasstile employees support all kinds of causes both near and far. Embracing social responsibility, they find joy in restoring orphanages, building schools, planting new trees and collaborating with the generation of tomorrow. Both home and commercial designs will get a dose of good vibes when they incorporate this environmentally-aware, socially-responsible product into their work-in-progress.
