Tailplane Patterns

Item details

Painter Fausto Fernandez tapped his love of layered colors and mechanical shapes to design a floor inspired by the outline of an airplane’s horizontal stabilizer, known as a tailplane. Fernandez used ten colors to create the platform’s rhythmic geometric patterns and sweeping bands. He heightened the floor’s reflective qualities by adding aggregates of recycled, crushed glass and mirror.
