The use of hexagonal design elements, in interior design is becoming hugely popular and, quite frankly, it’s just f&*cking cool.
It’s an ingenious way to add interest to a space and can take form in many elements.
Hexagonal Design Flooring
Hexagonal carpet tiles offset the stark plain white walls of this Minimal office space. They can be used to denote different areas. Corporate colours can delineate circulation while plain tiles indicate workspaces or meeting areas. This can be achieved with square tiles, but I think you’ll agree, the hexagonal add something not found in standard flooring.
Floor tiles are a great use of the hexagonal, they fit together perfectly while creating a pattern that seems random and considered, all at the same time. The addition of timber look tiles is a popular feature. This creates the division of areas, brings different colours and elements together and allows for seamless material changes.
Mosaics look fantastic in the bathrooms of the early twentieth century. Hexagonal mosaic is the perfect way to add character and interest to your Traditional bathroom. The care and craftsmanship it takes to lay all those tiles leaves behind the feel of bespoke quality. The small tile size allows for patterns of any configuration and even any picture the mind can conceive.
It is, however, important to remember the eternal words from Robert Browning’s poem, Andrea del Sarto, also called ‘The Faultless Painter’
Hexagonal Design Fittings and Furniture
Fittings, like wall mounted shelving, are for the purposes of housing keys or glasses and for displaying books and art. No one said the shelves themselves couldn’t be the art. A hexagonal shelf can be constructed from metal, timber or plastic, but let’s stick to wood and steel and stay away from plastic! The arrangement is up to the mind of the designer and client. The six-sided shape allows for the different sizes to be arranged in any configuration imaginable.
The addition of a honeycombed wall unit will add interest and focus to any space in any style.
Hexagons work perfectly for tables, both coffee and dining, as well as stools. The use and configuration is completely up to the designer / manufacturer. Timber and steel fit well with the Rustic and Industrial aesthetics while the sharp edges and clean lines scream Minimal.
Hexagonal furniture will catch the eye in any room and change something from ordinary to awesome.
Hexagonal Design Wall Tiles
The staggered rectangular tile pattern is commonplace in many Kitchens, and looks fantastic. Design, however, is about pushing the boundaries of the conventional. Hexagonal wall tiles add an edge to the conventional. To push it even further the arrow shaped tiles arranged into hexagons change the look completely and add a geometric pattern that draws the eye instantly.
Hexagonal Design Ceiling
The use of hexagons isn’t limited to the floor, wall or furniture. The layered plywood honeycomb ceiling of this Paris hair salon brings drama to the Minimal space. Once the lights are turned on the pieces seem to float in suspended animation adding different shades and tones of colour to the otherwise simple palette.
Hexagons are a prime example of taking a mundane convention and turning it on its head to create a masterpiece. Designers see where the ordinary can be made into something spectacular.
