New at Remodern: Bentu Jin Terrazzo Pendant

Posted by on

The Jin Terrazzo Pendant is the newest addition to Bentu’s beautiful terrazzo lighting collection, and demonstrates the Chinese studio’s approach to design, materials and environmental responsibility. Bentu debuted the Jin Terrazzo Pendant at Maison&Objet in Paris in January 2019 where it was received with great acclaim. Expertly crafted, the pendant effortlessly transforms from a cylinder to a cone, its minimalist, sculpted shape accentuating the striking visual textures and natural variances of the terrazzo.

The award-winning studio sources the recycled ceramic from Foshan City, which has a prolific ceramics industry that produces millions of tonnes of waste each year. The waste ceramics are mixed with concrete and machine polished to a smooth finish to create the graphic vibrancy and texture of terrazzo. 

Like all of Bentu’s work, Jin Terrazzo Pendant is not only an exercise in recycling disposed waste but is intended to bring attention and consideration to the cultural and environmental consequences of urban development. 


“The purpose of design is to discover the important problems existing in human society and to provide solutions. The speed of replacement between new and old materials is so quick that it is too late to even think about whether it is necessary for our society and environment,” says Bentu Design Director Chen Xingyu.“We pay attention to wastes and useless materials of the current industrial age and transform them into products and commodities by means of industrial production.”

Jin Terrazzo Pendant is available in black or white terrazzo with a brass cable fixing, and can be hung singularly, in linear arrangement or as a chandelier of multiple pendants. Exclusive to Remodern, Jin is now available for purchase online, or make an appointment at the Remodern showroom to view the pendant and Bentu collection in person.
