“Function Tiles” has been created by Droog Designers Peter van der Jagt, Erik-Jan Kwakkel, and Arnout Visser, it makes the tiles work more functionally, thus the name “Function Tiles”. Based on a familiar size and common module, each of these can be used to replace an existing tile in a given bathroom – a tissue dispenser slots in place of one while vents, hangers or new drains can be swapped in for others.
These tiles let you transform a small bathroom space into an interactive, multi-functional place with secret compartments, hidden functions, magnetic surfaces, built-in gadgets and more. We love the surprise of these guys and, of course, the fact that they give you a little additional storage in what is normally unused space.
