The terrazzo revival – modern concrete design by dade

Well known from palaces (Palazzi) in Italy, terrazzo is becoming more and more trendy and is often part of modern building design. Dade is able to produce true Terrazzo concrete  of SWISS Quality.
Terrazzo design is especially trendy in flooring. Today the materials used are no different than a few hundred years ago: marble, granite, chalk and gravel.

Terrazzo surfaces are extremely solid. To get the full Terrazzo effect, the surface needs to be sanded 5-6 times.
For this Project at the University of Zurich in Switzerland dade produced vanities for the whole building with our dade ROC concrete. The same stones as used in the flooring described above were used in order to achieve the (Terrazzo) look the architect was looking for (Architects Bhend & Klammer).
The modern design of the vanity with the trending slice, incl. maintenance loopholes has been designed by dade.
Have we piqued your interest? Are you interested in high quality custom concrete products? If so, we are looking forward receiving your design request.
