This timeless curved stripe design can be installed in two different ways. By arranging the tiles in vertical columns of varying direction, the tiles create a billowing stripe depicting rippling curtains or fabric, or rising and falling surf. The tiles may also be arranged in a “basket weave” arrangement, by placing the tiles in a checkerboard pattern of alternating directions. In this animated arrangement, Waving provides the pleasing visual effect of appearing to be a woven, three-dimensional, structure that feels ironically warm and soft while being constructed of cement.
