Terrazzo has been the recipient of incredible breakthroughs in technology. Using Epoxy as a base allows for brighter colors, a thinner base material, and the ability to add an array of various and unconventional aggregates. The one thing technology has not answered is how to keep 2 (or more), different colors separate without using an often unwanted, metal strip.
Designers are the ones having the most fun with Terrazzo. It’s not just the bright colors which stimulates their creativity. The dreaded grid pattern which is ubiquitous with tile, will not be an issue with hindering their unique design. The biggest challenge remains not creating a design that is going to be EXTREMELY time consuming and not to mention sky-high priced.
Owners are starting to love it, too. Easy maintenance and incredibly durability are just a few of its attributes, however, they won’t pay an arm and a leg at the whim of some designer.
“So what does all of this have to do with waterjet”?
Excellent question. And an even more excellent answer……..still to come.
