ANN SACKS® KANSO – A New Ceramic Design By ANN SACKS®

PORTLAND, Ore. (June 1, 2017) ANN SACKS, a leading manufacture and designer of tile and stone, unveiled Kanso, a modern ceramic tile with a smooth face and crisp edge to evoke a clean, minimalist ambiance. Offered standard in Winter White glossy or matte finish, Kanso is an inventoried tile with a lead time of only one to two weeks and with its ANN SACKS entry level price point makes it the perfect ‘go to’ for large scale commercial applications.

By design, Kanso’s concise edges allow for a tight grout joint to execute a neat, seamless installation. Tile field sizes of 3”x6”, 6”x6”, 4”x12”, 4”x24”, and 12”x24”, a netted mosaic (shown), and a beveled border and beveled bonded edge trim provide all the tools to take an installation from straightforward to more complex tile patterning when options are mixed and matched. Kanso is suitable for all indoor wall applications, including shower walls, and can withstand higher temperatures to accommodate behind-the-range backsplashes or fireplace surrounds.
