Terrazzo is a traditional and timeless material that is as much at home in sixteenth-century Italian villas as it is in contemporary residences and restaurants. Robust and resilient, terrazzo offers visual texture and unique colourful variation – and Bentu’s Terrazzo range has the added dimension of utilising waste stone and ceramic off-cuts as aggregate, giving new life to the otherwise discarded. These are Remodern’s top products for introducing the joy of terrazzo into your project.
I Terrazzo Table is a composition of elemental forms and geometries. Designed and crafted by Bentu, the tabletop is made with recycled waste ceramics mixed with concrete to create the graphic vibrancy and texture of terrazzo. The pedestal table is available in five heights, two tabletop shapes and two base shapes (circular or square), allowing it to be used for a range of purposes. The table is available in red, blue, black, white and cement grey (some as standard, others as custom) and the powder-coated steel base is coloured to match.
Although terrazzo has traditionally been used for flooring and surfaces, the evolution of the material now sees it being crafted into more sculptural forms and varied uses. Substantial in size, Piece Pendant has three floating planes fixed with an internal brass framework. The angles and overlapping planes encapsulate light and cast dynamic shadows.
Bang has a long and elegant, simple cylindrical form that highlights the complexity of the terrazzo. Like all the Bentu lamps, it can be hung alone, in a linear arrangement or at different heights to create a chandelier-like effect.
O2 Terrazzo Wall Light is a decorative and functional wall feature, providing a sculptural installation by day and illumination by night. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, O2 is available in two diameters, two depths and four colours. The floating discs are back-lit to create an impression reminiscent of celestial spheres in eclipse and discs can be mixed and matched to create unique clusters.
The Yuan Plant Pot's simple geometric form highlights its refined craftsmanship and allows the textured terrazzo surface to be admired from all angles. Yuan is available in two sizes and four colours. Use singularly or arrange with other terrazzo or concrete plant pots by Bentu. The Tie Terrazzo Magnet has been expertly crafted and cleverly packaged, Tie Magnet has a hexagonal cellular form that multiplies across surfaces. Available individually or as a set of four in different colours.
