Water Tiles are 15 different pavement tiles sized 30x30x5 cm inspired by the Dutch waterworks. A square, terras or playground can be changed into a river delta! The tiles with slopes and gullies can be arranged in different patterns. After a rain shower, the tiles will form puddles and streams. The pattern can also be connected to a drainpipe, rain barrel or water pump. Watertegels can be used to transport rainwater to infiltration areas (wadis) instead of the sewer as well as a natural motivation to play and learn. So Watertegels are a good reason to play outside after a rain shower!
