Pilkington Microwhite™ is a thin glass of extraordinary quality, manufactured through the float process: the extra-clear substrate, due to the low iron content, gives the glass a superior neutrality and a very high light transmission.
Today, a remarkable new design application uses Pilkington Microwhite™ to create stunning glass tile mosaics: thanks to the use of patented nanotechnologies, Mutaforma has created TILLA®, the smallest square glass tile in the world, measuring as little as 1.5 mm square and 1 mm thickness.
The product changes the optical properties of the glass and is used to create dramatic visual effects; it is inspired by the ancient culture of glass mosaic, conceived and produced entirely in Italy: the result is a stunning micromosaic artistic and decorative wall and floor covering.
A true architectural “second skin“, which due to its versatility and flexibility, can be applied to a wide range of surfaces, offering design solutions to satisfy every requirement such as retail, residential, yachting and swimming pools and spas.
There are no design limitations as each project can be customised to the client’s requirements so as to transform architectural surfaces by applying decorative designs or backlit panels to produce exclusive artworks with a strong visual impact, creating a unique environment using chromatic effects – unlike anything seen before.
Versatile and functional, Pilkington Microwhite becomes a synonym of the biggest evolution in the art of mosaic.
