Cuban Style

In collaboration with global architecture and design firm Gensler, AKDO has launched Plaza Nueva, a porcelain tile collection inspired by the timeless city of Havana. Plaza Nueva combines the best of old world Havana with modern, clean design. The liveliness of the 500-year-old city is captured in three patterns (Miramar, Rampa, and Vedado) and three color options. Miramar adds texture and dimension with its intricate pattern of intersecting parallel lines. Rampa can be laid straight or rotated in different directions to instantly create a focal point in any space. Both have hexagonal profiles and are available in gray, navy, and white. Vedado is a 7”x7” square tile with a mid-century graphic, and you can choose from charcoal, gray, or navy. Shop for Plaza Nueva online at or in-person at one of AKDO’s authorized dealers.
