Lepic 22.3x22.3cm floor tile by Pamesa Cerámica (Spain).
A porcelain tile with a satin finish and frost-proof glaze. Named after the French Impressionist painter Ludovic-Napoléon Lepic, this square tile is a digitally printed patterned floor tile with a bold geometric print in a repeating pattern and pastel colours. The Lepic creates a modern centrepiece floor in contemporary bathrooms, kitchens and conservatories. Part of the Art series of floor tiles.
Although produced using modern manufacturing methods, the Lepic is sometimes referred to as an encaustic tile. Before the advent of screen printing (and more recently digital printing) one technique of applying different colours to tiles was to use different coloured clays. The Victorians called these encaustic tiles which were originally known as inlaid tiles. It is common for patterned tiles to be conflated with encaustic tiles because they share many similar features including bright colours, repeating print patterns and are often considered rustic.
Frost-proof tiles like this are an important consideration for rooms where the temperature may drop below zero such as utility rooms and conservatories. Tiles with a frost-proof glaze have a water absorption rate of less than 0.5% meaning they are ideal for such conditions. Tiles which are not frost-proof may absorb water which would freeze at zero and below, causing the tile to crack.
