TileVault: Convex Bathroom Tile at IKEA

What: Rectangular grey tile with a convex-arched profile.
Where: A bathroom showroom in IKEA Brooklyn.
Why: The warm, pale grey tile is simple and minimal, with a tiny twist — can you tell from the photograph that this tile is convexly arched? The subtle profile of the tile instantly adds a richness to the neutral space. More pictures after the jump...

Is there a proper name for this type of tile? In our research, different manufacturers have very different names for sculptural profile tile. Anyone?
