Marble Hexagon Tile Covering Material by Celil Kilinc

Home > Winners > #135169




DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Marble Hexagon Tile

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Covering Material

INSPIRATION:
Ceramic tile industries strive to imitate the look & feel of natural materials such as marble. There is a popular trend in different formats and shapes such as chevrons, trapezoids and hexagons in the ceramic tile sector, and these products are quite affordable. However, these shapes were not easily producible or cost-efficient in the marble sector. Ionic Stone's R&D team just wanted to explore if these shapes could be made using natural materials.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Traditionally, marble hexagon tiles are cut with waterjets. Waterjet cutting is very expensive and takes a lot of time. Ionic Stone's R&D department developed a technique by which rectangle tiles can be cut into hexagon formats with utmost precision in dimensions, and the cost of the process is a fraction of the cost of waterjet cutting, therefore marble hexagon tiles are now extremely affordable.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Cutting marble tiles into rectangle formats with precision is easy. However, any shapes such as hexagons are cut with CNCs-computer-controlled machines, which is extremely expensive to operate. Ionic Stone's method is to use an innovative technique that uses traditional disc cutting with utmost precision. This way, cost is reduced considerably and as a result marble hexagon tiles become extremely affordable.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This line of products have been in the American, Canadian and UK markets since 2019. The first mass-production was undertaken in 2018.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Building Materials and Construction Components Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Using traditional diamond disc cutting, Ionic Stone's R&D team came up with a technique that allows marble tiles to be cut into hexagon formats very easily and in high volumes. The cutting machine is the product of Ionic Stone's R&D department and completed it in 9 months, from conception to installation.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
It could be any size from 15cm (one side of the hexagon) to 30 cm.

TAGS:
Marble, Chevron, Hexagon, Tiles, Innovative formats

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Hexagons are popular in ceramic fields but they were expensive to produce with marble. Ionic's R&D division was charged with the task of coming up a method via which making marble hexagon was cost-effective. The challenge was to cut the tiles accurately in high-volumes. Many different cutting techniques were evaluated and a method using disc cutting was devised. A machine was designed and was made in 3 months. With necessary modifications it took 9 months to amend the machine. The result was perfect marble hexagon tiles at affordable costs.

CHALLENGE:
Cutting very accurately in hexagon format without NC machines (such as waterjets and CNCs) is a very drastic challenge. The process, for which we applied for the patent, encompasses a very unique and simple method, is the key to success.

I am so impressed with Celil Kilinc's Marble Hexagon Tile design! The concept of a covering material that seamlessly blends two different shapes is truly an innovative idea. The neutral tones of the marble provide a great contrast to the hexagonal pattern. The combination is both aesthetically pleasing and unique. It must have taken a great deal of skill and creativity to come up with this idea. Kudos to Celil Kilinc for creating this amazing design!
