As Seen In: PRODUCTS Magazine

PRODUCTS is a quarterly compendium of new building product launches, installation techniques, research and development news, and picks from industry professionals. The magazine and website offer one-stop shopping for the latest in building products and materials for residential builders, architects, remodelers, and kitchen and bath designers. We love what they do over at PRODUCTS and we were so excited to see that they shared our newest collection, “KIDDO: Wunderkammer Edition,” from New Ravenna’s creative director, Cean Irminger, in a piece entitled, “New Ravenna Introduces New Tiles Aimed at Spaces for Children.

Cean Irminger, New Ravenna creative director.

The six whimsical designs in this second rendition of KIDDO explore the essence of childhood and is made completely by hand from materials like stone, brass, aluminum, and 24k gold – all from our factory on the Eastern Shore of Virginia!

“The idea of a Wunderkammer, otherwise known as a wonder room, has always delighted me,” says New Ravenna’s creative director, Cean Irminger. “Essentially a trove of fantastic curiosities from the natural, scientific, and artistic worlds, it’s a collection that by its nature draws one in to look closer, to try and discover the story of each object. The aim of the KIDDO collection has always been to entice viewers and transport them to a place of childlike wonder.”

As Seen In: Egypt’s El Beit Magazine

Now in its 17th year, El Beit Magazine, the lavishly illustrated home, decoration and design publication from Cairo, has established itself as a way of life for thousands throughout the region. “The House” is what “El Beit” means in Arabic: a spot-on choice of title for the only monthly magazine of its kind published principally in Arabic. In a recent article on mosaics, El Beit included three mosaics from New Ravenna: Mod Palm, Chinoiserie and Ellen’s Fish. To read the full article, click here. Note: if you are using Chrome, there is an option to translate the piece from Arabic to English in the upper right-hand corner.

Of our “Chinoiserie” mosaic, El Beit says, “You do not need to use a brush and a paint to paint a panel on a wall. As long as you have small tiles in different colors you can make a dazzling mosaic, using random mosaic pieces of different sizes and bodies.” Chinoiserie is a handcut glass mosaic shown in Emerald, Tourmaline, Labradorite, Opal, Tiger’s Eye, Amber, Peridot, Champagne, Rose Quartz, and Pearl jewel glass with Marcasite Sea Glass™.

Per El Beit, “Mod Palm,” a hand-cut jewel glass mosaic shown below in Verdite, Peridot, Malachite, Chrysocolla, Savorite, Cat’s Eye, Jasper, Schist, Tanzite, and Peridot with Moonstone background with a Sea Glass™ finish, is “an innovative idea to use mosaic pieces of different colors.” Mod Palm was designed by Joni Vanderslice as part of the J. Banks Collection for New Ravenna.

Finally, “Ellen’s Fish” is a jewel glass mosaic designed by Ellen McCaleb for New Ravenna. El Beit describes it as “a practical solution to make the wall of the basin area the main attraction.”

As each New Ravenna mosaic is made-to-order, any of the mosaics in the J. Banks Collection for New Ravenna can be customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the project’s scope. The collection is available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Dubai.

We’re so honored to have made the list with “Tanzanian Squiggle,” a mosaic from our collaboration with J. Banks Design. This particular mosaic was designed with a wave theme in mind and was inspired by Joni Vanderslice‘s (principal at J. Banks Design) travels through and around Africa. Of this design, Saxon Henry said, “we love the name almost as much as we love the beauty of the pattern! The hints of navy provide the depth that are a hallmark of gracefully actualized mosaics.”

As each New Ravenna mosaic is made-to-order, any of the mosaics in the J. Banks Collection for New Ravenna can be customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the project’s scope.
