Currently available in three colors from Heath Ceramics: midcentury-inspired house numbers, a collaborative effort with typeface designers House Industries.

Above: A combination of Heath Ceramics’ clay, kilns and craft with House Industries’ Eames Century Modern font family resulted in a collection of tiles featuring individual house numbers (0-9) and four special characters (an arrow, ampersand, star, and asterisk).

Above: A House Number Eames 5 is $38 from Heath. In addition to black, it’s available in yellow or red. Of the design, House Industries says, “In a nod to Charles and Ray’s infatuation with circus imagery, we penned three elephantine numeral fonts whose woodcut-inspired forms leave a tastefully pachydermic impact. “

Above: A House Number Eames Ampersand (L) and a House Number Eames Arrow (R) are available in black, red, or yellow for $38 apiece from Heath.

Above: Says House Industries: “The two companies designed the tiles to be modular and easily integrated within a Heath tile installation, as well as appreciated on their own as beautiful objects.”
