This collection is a graphic reinterpretation of terrazzo flooring, to experiment with new approaches to planning and design. Terrazzo was created in the 15th century in Venice as a way of re-using marble, granite and quartz chips, mixed together with cement to form a single compound reminiscent of an uneven mosaic. It was often used both for its durability and its ability to create a “design”. The reinterpreted porcelain tile from this collection varies from fine to medium grain. It is also suitable for a variety of architectural settings, both period and modern, offering novel, stimulating perspectives.
