Modern Cement Tile Patterns: Espiral Installations

The Artist Series is a unique collection of cement tiles created by artists from the Dominican Republic. Today we feature a design by Cándido Bidó — a Dominican artist renowned for his intense colors and attention to detail. He's also the creative force behind the bold Espiral cement tile design used on this open-air patio floor.

The Espiral cement tile brings in the beach and ocean with cool blues and creates a festive and fun floor using a bright red accent. This pattern is the perfect theme for a beach patio or open-air deck. Cement tile is a great material choice for this high-traffic, outside application. The pattern and field tile on this floor are all 10" x 10".

Cement tiles are a versatile building product and work well on wall applications, too. Here's two commercial applications showing the versatility of these tiles. Above, an indoor wall application. Below, the Espiral pattern is used for a Caribbean cabana bar in an exterior wall application.

These contemporary tile patterns reflect the boldness and personalities of the artisan that made the design. The Artist Series is a showcase of their skills and elevates cement tile to functional art. This tile line is designed to showcase the artist's work both nationally and internationally and give back to the community. Aguayo Tiles generously donates a portion of the proceeds from all sales of the Artist Series. These proceeds support multiple charities that promote art in the Dominican Republic and work toward the improvement of communities in need.
