Permeable paving tiles for urban water management

Rainaway integrates rainwater into urban design with the goal of creating a climate proof city. They have designed four tiles for urban paving; three 'Flood' tiles and one 'Ebb' tile. The 'Flood' tile has three varieties: open, closed and permeable. This tile’s main purpose is to store rainwater in a visible and original manner. The 'Ebb' tile is a supportive tile. It leads rainwater in a visible and visually appealing way to a desired infiltration or storage location. The Ebb tile is an especially great addition to an urban space when rainwater is collected at considerable distances.
