Atelier Flooring is cut from large ceramic sheets using a computer-controlled water jet containing a high-pressure mixture of water and sand; the pieces snap together like a jig­saw puzzle to create uniform patterns. According to the maker, the tiles are sturdier and easier to clean than most ceramics. Prices range from $635 to $970 per square meter.
