This is an actual floor tile in a pizza shop that I visited. The advantage of this
design is that the square tiles are easy to find. This tiling is pretty simple once
you understand the trick. The ratio of the large square to the small square can
be any arbitrary value. This tessellation is often used to demonstrate the
Pythagoras theorem. This tessellation method is also know as
OFFSET SQUARES.

The Japanese furniture design Shigero Uchida build a whole shelf like this for
books and memorabilia.
