Design showcase: top five interiors with terrazzo
In collaboration with TOPHOTELDESIGN we take a look at five exceptional interiors featuring terrazzo in their design.
Inspiring examples of how terrazzo can be used in interiors take us to hotels across Asia, Europe and North America.
Infinite creative scope
Terrazzo is a composite material, poured on-site or pre-fabricated in the form of tiles made of marble chips, granite quartz, glass, shell pieces and other similar materials.
This technique has been around since the mid-15th century when Venetian mosaic workers discovered a way to re-use marble remnants. After that, it became a matter of perfecting the levelling technique with different polishing methods.
Not only does terrazzo open the door to infinite colour, scale and material combinations, but it also offers the chance to re-use waste materials. This results in an unrepeatable pattern that can last for decades.
Today we bring to you five designs that brought this material to the main stage. There are murals that highlight the material, bright bathrooms where terrazzo is the protagonist and interiors where different types of stone interact through their various forms.
