News from Milano Salone del Mobile 2015

Heath released a series of handcrafted clay tile House Numbers using fonts created by Charles and Ray Eames. Ceramics numbers are created by Heath in collaboration with famed type foundry House Industries. Like all Heath products, the House Numbers are subject to a refreshingly folksy, holistic, and low-impact (Heath’s clay bodies require just one low-temperature firing instead of the normal two, saving precious energy and resources) manufacturing process that has pretty much remained the same since the company was founded in the mid-1940s.
