Raven is the London based, Northern European Distributor for Japanese Master Ceramists, INAX.
INAX have created a series of tiles founded on Japanese culture and tradition, with additional inspiration from nature and seasonal hues. This results in tiles instilled with the sensitivity and refinement of the Japanese people; including the distinctive timeless approach of omotenashi (spirit of hospitality)
INAX Founder, Hatsunojo Ina, was highly regarded for his skills in Yakimono (earthenware) and was engaged by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1919 to produce 2.5 million tiles for his new Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. Unfortunately, this stunning piece of architecture was dismantled in 1967 but a portion of the decorative tiles have been preserved in the INAX Museum.
Raven are delighted to offer these traditional Japanese ceramics to architects and interior designers throughout Northern Europe.
INAX ceramics contain a minimum of 40% recycled material and INAX complies with ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Systems.
