Tile - It's Alive!





I've recently discovered 2 amazing tile products that come to life with motion, touch, or temperature, and I had to share:


1.  Sensitile Scintilla Interactive Panels


"Each Scintilla panel is internally structured to have thousands of light conducting channels. These optical pathways activate the panels giving them a magically interactive surface which responds to the shadows, movements, lights and colors around it - no power needed!"


I saw the Scintilla system featured on Maison21 on the walls in this gorgeous powder room (unfortunately the Scintilla isn't highlighted well in this photo):



2.  Moving Color 

Heat and touch-sensitive tiles that change color:
