Terrazzo Project

The Terrazzo Project (TP) is a joint undertaking with fellow Switzerland-based Canadian designer Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard. Born from a common interest in working with uncommon materials, TP investigates ways to use terrazzo for furniture and object design.

TP Collection 2012 includes a table, a shelf, a suspended tube lamp, a stool, built from slim, sturdy and lightweight terrazzo pieces. TP uses a special terrazzo blend composed of glass fibers and steel mesh that allows for very thin profiles. Every piece is hand casted and hand polished in the region of Veneto, Italy; a feat of cutting edge craftsmanship. The terrazzo pieces are supported by simple powder coated tube structures, which are flat packed and easily assembled on the spot using only an Allen key.
