The fine floral ornaments promote the clean and simple character of the space while adding a touch of warm and live contrast and highlighting the cold austerity of the material.

SOHO’s rectified, oversized, square and plank formats counterpoint the relatively simple, tone-on-tone nuanced colors of field tile with fanciful, three-dimensional decorative wall modules that transform the everyday into the extraordinary. Art converges with geometry in clean, modern, color body porcelain that suggests the large, open spaces of metropolitan architecture and the eclectic area of the Big Apple from which it takes its name.
