You probably think of terrazzo as a mid-century design material, and of course, it had a huge heyday from 1930 to 1970, when the poured and polished version of the cement and marble chip composite was installed in nearly every public building. In fact, though, like many timeless materials, terrazzo can be traced back much farther than our current reference point. In this case to 15th century Italy. Of course, back then it was never as colorful as our new collection of pre-cast, 8-inch tiles which are named after the rainbow – Arcobaleno. In nine soft and pretty nature-inspired color variations, all in a sophisticated matte finish, Arcobaleno brings all the strength and lasting beauty to an interior of poured terrazzo, but is so much simpler to install. Ask your Marble Systems associate about creating patterns out of multiple colors to create wayfinding, feature walls and other interesting modular designs. Suitable for all horizontal and vertical applications in residential and commercial interiors, Arcobaleno is brilliant in high traffic spots but quite at home in any residential design as well.
