Scale comes in three aptly titled categories—Greyscale, Colorscale and Freescale. With a wide assortment of textures and patterns, Greyscale and Colorscale keep it interesting but streamlined with a mix of four short and long rectangular shapes.

Freescale consists of more unique shapes designed to link seamlessly for an endless variety of orientations, from the elegant to the Escher-esque. The Crystal, Mesh and Partition shapes resembles obscure geometric designs more likely found on junior high math tests than under your feet, but with 16 different colors to choose from the only limitation of what you can accomplish is your own imagination.
