The thought behind Mini Masters tiles is to present attractive ceramic sections for places for instance restaurants, retail outlets or the home, which hold integrated QR codes connecting to extra content. At present the company is present four 15cm x 15cm tiles designed by Dutch artist Jeroen van der Most, featuring explanation of iconic art images as well as one of Van Gogh’s self-portraits and Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe print.
QR codes embedded in the images erratically provide a comic or philosophical quotation from a database to smartphone client with a appropriate app installed. These quotes will then come into view to anyone scanning Mini Masters tiles everywhere in the world. Mini Masters tiles are a exclusive use of QR code technology and add a social element to a piece of beautification that might otherwise go unnoticed.
