The Sculptural Concrete Tiles of Daniel Ogassian

Concrete has never looked so good, Daniel. Thank you for the dedication to its innovation as a fine facade, tile design, ceramic, and architectural product made at your California sun-soaked location. Without people like designer Daniel Ogassian, the material we typically see on flinty sidewalks may never emerge as it has in the past decade with artistic designs and patterns – like the Optic 1, Japanese Weave, and Penta Flora – that are comfortable coating both interior and exterior surfaces.

Featured on the Furfin in late 2009, it was said that “with the use of CNC technology, his studio of veteran designers create concrete tiles that reveal perfect curves and decisive edges”. Understood as an old-world craft, concrete has slowly been moving into our digital era of design. The advanced technology that Ogassian employs in his workshop allows him to custom-create surfaces for select projects or mass produce tiles like his Optic 1, Japanese Weave, and Penta Flora designs, among others.

Ogassian says of the Optic 1: “Sculptural presence with a seamless optic, kinetic flow – walk along the plane of view as the dynamic of light and shadow creates its own movement.” It comes in 22.4″ x 22.4″ tiles, and as he states, it plays with our depth perception. “A repeating pattern plays with graceful continuity – endless,” expresses his take on the Japanese Weave concrete tile that measures 16″ x 16″. Lastly, the beautiful Penta Flora draws on the softness of natural beauty and is described as “a play with symmetry and a splash of pattern” in it’s 14.25″H x 17″W sizing that fits together like wooden puzzle pieces.

Unlimited potential as a precisely designed surface, the patterned concrete tiles by Daniel Ogassian turns the traditional tide of tiling into a modern final product.
