This project has an interesting tangent to it. William Roberts in 1989 discovered a disused mine in the Snowdonia National Park, Wales. His intentions were to encourage tourists to pan for gold, but the plan was refused due to its vicinity.
Alternatively, William Roberts decided to mine for more undiscovered gold in the mine. A small operation was brought into production and the first jewellery was fabricated continuing to ensure that Wales was at the focal point. In 2014, Clogau Gold diversified and opened its first flagship store in the heart of Cardiff.
We were asked to source a product that would compliment the interior concept and provide an expensive sophisticated durable surface.
With the theme based around unique gold and jewellery, we search our portfolio of tiles and presented a 1000×500 Onyx designed floor tile which blended with other materials providing a light reflectiveness concept to the main sales floor.
When photographing the project we could not believe how every aspect collaborated together so perfectly. The concept certainly created an air of affluence.
Joe Trickett of West Design commented “ The range of samples that Verde Ceramica brought to our office was overwhelming. We could have quite easily used around 90% of the options they introduced, but we felt the Onyx concept complimented other material use in the project. The service from Verde did not just stop at tile selection and delivery to site, they kindly travelled to Cardiff to take photographs of the completed concept!”
