This ceramic range of panels is based on the idea of creating surfaces that have the delicacy of fired glazes. The tactile appeal of the surfaces is designed to engage the user to try and determine how the material has been created as closer inspection shows that the depth of the design is not a paint effect but a solid surface. Solomon and Wu loves the idea of investigating the possibilities with designers for commercial applications from bars to tables and whatever they imagine.
Following research into beautiful, traditional surfaces and contemporary high performance finishes, Solomon and Wu has developed Elenite, the base material of this collection, to meet the exacting requirements of luxury clients. Taking simplicity as the guiding principle, they have been inspired by organic textures for the Cast surfaces, bold colours for the Pigment range, tactile Ceramic finishes and crisp geometry for the Stencils. Colours and finishes across the whole collection can be tailor made. Solomon and Wu manufactures all the products by hand to the highest level of craftsmanship in the UK and have worked on projects in more than fifty countries.
