Home News Walker Zanger imparts new take on linear design with launch of Stix

Sylmar, Calif.—Walker Zanger is proud to impart a new look to the design trends that call for exaggerated linearity and the employment of gray-and-hue color combinations: It’s the new Stix collection of poured and hand-cut glass mosaic tiles. As an extension of the Walker Zanger Weave collection, which introduced linear glass to the market, Stix is thin and slim, with a dynamic range of tile sizes that invites creativity. With its unique shape and iridized finish, Stix is at home in a wide variety of commercial and residential vertical applications, complementing styles from modern to spa to transitional.

Stix is available in five solid colors and six blends, pairing cool neutral grays with colors such as gold, bronze and white. The color is enhanced by the luminosity provided by the glass itself, which is further refined by a subtle organic texture visible through it, and the unique feel that can only be accomplished with hand-cut tile. “Stix plays to the popularity of linear shapes and patterns and offers on-trend color combinations for both indoor and outdoor vertical spaces,” notes Walker Zanger Vice President of Design and Marketing, Jared Becker. “Depending upon the other design elements with which it’s used, it can take a quiet supporting role, or play a charismatic lead.”

The mosaics which can be achieved with Stix are possible due to its variety of sizes; indeed, the line includes 1– by 4-inch, 3/4– by 4-inch, and 1/2– by 4-inch sizes in a linear blend, making it the ideal palette for fluid, almost graphical, applications.

Stix will be available nationwide in February 2012.
