Bentu U Pendant, now available in Terrazzo
Posted by on
Bentu’s U Pendant has proven such a popular success that the Chinese design studio has recreated it in vibrant terrazzo. Like the lavastone and concrete pendants, U Terrazzo is expertly crafted and exquisitely finished with a simple geometry that allows the inherent beauty of the material to shine.
Unveiled at Milan Furniture Fair in 2017, the terrazzo collection is an expression of Bentu’s experimental and environmentally responsible approach to materials. The studio sources ceramic from construction and demolition sites and factories in Foshan City, which has a prolific ceramics industry that produces millions of tonnes of waste each year. Through rigorous research and experimentation, Bentu gives that waste ceramic material a new lease of life by using it to create the graphic vibrancy and texture of terrazzo.
Bentu mixes the ceramic aggregate with ultra-high-performance concrete that allows for slim profiles with maximum strength. The surfaces are machine polished to a smooth, refined finish, and the interior has a golden glow when illuminated.
Available in black, white and pink terrazzo, the pendants have a simple upside down ‘U’ silhouette which is appreciated from all angles, and are particularly striking in linear formation or chandelier arrangement.
