Penrose Aperiodic Tiles in Linoleum
by Dan Bernstein
Home Decorators Collection . . .
I am a big fan of Kirkcauldy linoneum. The real stuff made with chalk and linseed oil on a hessian back.
I love tiling and tesselation but want something that has no repeats to cover a large floor area.
I have discovered that Roger Penrose, a mathematician, has discovered how to make tiles that never repeat using only two forms a kite and a dart.
I want to use the water cutter to accurately cut my fine linoleum in two complementary colours to cut these shapes accurately so I can tile them together to make my floor which will be a real talking point.
I am going to use very similar tones with a small variance of hue so the floor is not overwhelming.
