Love You Navy - this collection was loved by interior designers and jurors in Dobry wzor competition
Our new product, the Love You Navy tile collection, has just been qualified for the finals of “DOBRY WZÓR” COMPETITION 2020 by experts from the Industrial Design Institute. It has also become the favourite of interior designers in a competition organised by Opoczno.
Good Design is the most prestigious and valued design award in Poland, and the oldest design competition in our country, which has been organised for 27 years. This year, 115 products and services that exemplify the best design on the Polish market have been qualified for the finals. One of the finalists is the Love You Navy tile collection by Opoczno. It comes in the most sought-after colour of this season and combines deep navy blue with a satin finish.
“The idea to create this collection was born at the beginning of 2019. My intuition was correct. When it was announced that the 2020 colour of the year was Classic Blue, our collection was already in production”, says Marcelina Skupińska, Opoczno Senior Product Manager, author of the collection. “The choice of the colour was based mainly on my observation of the market, international trade fairs and the needs of our customers. I was trying to create something unique to the eye that at the same time would not be completely insane. And that’s what Love You Navy is. It catches the eye, but it is also timeless.”
Colour, satin and chevron
Apart from its unique colour, the collection is even more attractive thanks to the satin finish. “What is key in this collection is the blue colour. I chose a satin finish because it gives this colour depth and nobleness. Satin looks great in wall collections because it is subtle and seems to be soft. Touch often plays a big part in choosing ceramic tiles and satin is unrivalled in this case”, explains Marcelina Skupińska.
The collection is made up of smooth and structural tiles with a chevron pattern, which has an interesting visual effect. They are complemented by two-colour mosaics with an original herringbone pattern, which have been designed to enable cascading patterns on walls. “Mosaics are the most surprising elements of this collection”, says its author. “We can arrange them in regular, mixed or cascading patterns.”

The choice of elements offered by the Love You Navy collection makes it possible to create many original patterns, and turns wall lining into a decoration in itself. “The format, colours, type of elements and surface consistent with all elements were developed in such a way as to give designers as many options as possible and enable them to create varied interior design concepts. Regardless of which colours or patterns a designer decides to put together, they will all make up a coherent and well-thought-out interior”, emphasises Marcelina Skupińska.
The colours and patterns that fit into the latest trends and a wide range of designing possibilities has already been appreciated by architects. Love You Navy tiles were included in a bathroom design that won the 1st edition of the competition #Opoczno and architects help, with works contributed under the hashtag #OpocznoandArchitects. “What charmed me was the deep colour of the tiles and the chevron pattern. The Full version of the mosaics looks great, whereas the Half version gives interesting design possibilities, as it creates a tonal transition from whiteness into wood”, says Aleksandra Sobiesiak from Kapa Studio, the author of the awarded design. “This collection makes it possible to design both a bold interior with intensive colours and its more delicate version in white.”
Justyna Król from Czerwona Cegła Design Studio, the author of another design distinguished in the competition, also chose Love You Navy tiles. “What we loved about this collection was the beautiful and deep navy blue colour combined with a warm shade of wood”, says the designer. “Moreover, various elements, textures and colours of these products offer ample design possibilities.”
The Love You Navy collection comes in two colour versions: Blue and White, in an impressive size: 30x90 cm. Apart from smooth satin tiles, the collection also includes tiles with an original texture and wood-like tiles. It is completed by herringbone mosaics which combine colour and wood and come in two versions: Full and Half.
