«Pearl Terrazzo» – Concrete pearls by dade design
We call them “Black Pearl” and “White Pearl” and they actually have a soft, pearl-like shimmer. Responsible for this are the selected aggregates in the concrete mass, which, after pouring and drying, come to the surface during grinding and give our terrazzo objects a unique appearance.
Terrazzo is a special type of concrete
The additives already mentioned can be special coloured pebbles, mother-of-pearl, even porcelain, which ultimately give the natural or coloured concrete mass its appearance. Next to the special pattern that is created by the choice of grain, it is possible to play with colour contrasts, such as black and white, grey and green or beige and white, leading to a large variety of terrazzo variants. Sanding the concrete renders the surface extremely compact and therefore particularly resistant – a kitchen worktop made of terrazzo can withstand the wear and tear of daily life.
Terrazzo worktops or terrazzo cladding for kitchen furniture
Terrazzo – which was popular as floor covering already in ancient times – can be used in many ways today. In addition to worktops, entire furniture pieces can be covered with terrazzo panels and give a kitchen a cool and unique appearance.
Are you already thinking about possible colour combinations for your individual terrazzo? Our team will be happy to advise you and provide you with material samples.
