Important new developments within Bisazza, specialised in the creation of glass mosaics for decorating both interior and exterior spaces: on occasion of Milano Design Week the company inaugurated its new flagship store at Via Solferini 22, in the very heart of Brera.
The display area, which is extremely well-lit thanks to the large windows that look out onto both streets, occupies a surface area of 200 square meters.
All of Bisazza’s collections are present in the showroom (Mosaico, Cementiles, Wood, and Marmo), contributing, along with three mighty columns decorated in gold mosaic tiles, to the elegance and sophistication of the environments.
Simultaneously, the company presented for the first time its new Pebbles line, created by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders. The collection is an homage to the fifteen year anniversary of the collaboration between the artist and Bisazza.
“When I think of these fifteen years of collaboration with Bisazza, the word that comes to mind is ‘surprising’. Bisazza’s love for beauty, together with the right amount of innovation, is in perfect harmony with my intention of lifting the human spirit and bringing value back to artisan craftsmanship in design. Together we make the world less boring,” says Marcel Wanders.
As the designer said, it’s impossible to call Pebbles boring, characterised by a sophisticated play of textures and vibrantly coloured flowers (scarlet, Delft-blue, peach, and gold) that audaciously blossom on the sinuous surfaces of each coffee table.
Manual skill and artisan craftsmanship are found in every piece of the entirely hand made collection, which combines glass and gold mosaic tiles. In the production of these pieces, Bisazza’s master mosaicists used the opus tessellatum artistic technique.
