Furniture Made From Terazzo

Italian designer Alberto Bellamoli has stepped up the growing trend towards terrazzo and unveiled housewares with colored marble stains. Terrazzo, which is made from marble scraps, has been used as a construction and surface material in buildings – most commonly floors – for centuries because of its durability.

Bellamoli’s interpretation of terrazzo is characterized by its large pieces of inlaid marble, rounded to look like dots. He used two different color combinations – a white base with marble patches in shades of green, and a darker base that is speckled with beige. The Collecta series includes candle holders as well as four bowls and two coffee tables in different sizes.

He tossed a large block of terrazzo and aged it for a month in the right conditions for humidity and temperature, almost like a handmade Italian salami. This is a truly Italian point of view – create furniture like you are cooking! He finished the process by hand and polished the parts to reveal the different patterns of the stones.
