A company named after the two eldest children of Stephen and Kristen Powers, Trikeenan - based in the Northeastern U.S. - launched Modulus just in time for the 2010 Coverings show. Offered in an assortment of 50 colors, coming in 16 shapes, with 5 trim styles, and in three different finishes, this versatile, large format tile works in commercial, hospitality and residential applications. If you've ever vacationed in Florida and stopped through Wellington's Whole Foods, you'll know exactly what tiles we are praising (this was one of their most recent projects).

Although Modulus keeps up with the thin, large tiles that have set the scene this season in tiles overall, Trikeenan offers a couple of simple, artistic lines of smaller, mosaic tiles that can be used with or without the larger pallette of Modulus at its side. The first is the Basics Collection, a line of smaller tiles that are fired for different lengths of time after applying a single color of glaze. This creates the spectrum of colors that creates dimensions impossible to achieve elsewhere.
The second line that lends itself to Modulus is the Glass Windows line. It is a unique line of sustainable tiles created using 100% recycled glass and ceramic in firing - a method that has been developed and used only in the factories of Trikeeanan. Each of these two collections, among the others Trikeenan offers, are moderately priced and proudly produced in the U.S.A.
