vi elsker fliser…


Vi elsker fliser rigtig meget. Vi er så glade for den stilrene og smukke overflade at hvis det var op til os, ville hele verden være flisebelagt. Problemet er blot at fliser er flade. Det er verdenen ikke. Af praktiske grunde er det ofte nødvendigt at montere ‘væg møbler’ på fliseoverfladen (en tandbørste skal jo stå et sted). Vi har designet fliser som fører os et kæmpe skridt nærmere drømmen om en flisebelagt verden.

vores designere


I 2001 designede Arnout Wisser, Erik Jan Kwakkel og Peter van der Jagt fliser til en flisebelagt verden. De viste sig at være mere besværlige at producere end at designe. Erik Jan og Peter rejste verden rundt for at finde en fabrik der kunne producere fliserne. Ingen kunne. Men de opgav ikke drømmen om den flisebelagte verden. I 2010 købte de sin egen maskine og efter et år med forsøg og forbedringer, lykkedes det dem at perfektionere projektet. Fliserne kan produceres. Da det stod klart, stiftede de Dtile i 2011 og har ikke set tilbage siden.

fabrikken


At the DTILE factory in Velp, The Netherlands, we produce our rounded construction tiles and our expanding range of function tiles. This is a highly specialized production process that requires craftmanship and attention to detail from the small team in our workshop. You are always welcome in Velp to see how a bucket of dry clay transforms into shiny and virtually unbreakable objects - in a range of beautiful colors. And for a cup of coffee, of course.

The flat 15 x 15 cm tiles are produced by our partner in Italy.

vores hold


Sometimes there are some misconceptions about the size of our company - people tend to think that we're much bigger than we actually are. We are with a small crew, between five and ten people, depending on the projects we are working on. We like it that way, because we think that because of our size we are pretty flexible. We're able to work closely with our clients (Peter will answer all your questions and help you with your design, if needed), and regularly produce special tiles in very limited editions (Erik Jan is the Mad Professor in charge of production and lives by the motto 'everything is possible'). And Klaartje (pictured here) makes sure that all promises we make to you are met - in time.
