Beyond decoration, beyond the traditional mosaic concept, beyond chip size, rigidly defined geometrical space.
The new range from Mosaico+ takes a fresh approach, extending the material’s expressive potentials and the languages used to convey them. Jointed, the collection the company is launching at Cersaie in Bologna, is a perfect example.
A collection that supersedes modularity
A new collection that symbolizes the Mosaico+ revolution, superseding the modularity of the mosaic chip and its repetition across the surface through the potential for breaking down every single element in 5 different ways.
In Jointed, the 5×5 cm chip is engraved with a graphic motif providing the basis for 5 different types of decoration. The random composition of each of the subdivided chips transforms the simple surface into a complex array, varying depending on the way the sheets are installed, which may be repetitive or in a random layout. The personalization continues with the option of using a tone-on-tone grout or a contrasting one, to enhance the material’s vibrancy.
A series that offers infinite combinations, an invaluable tool for architects and interior designers, for defining the identity of a surface, highlighting the architectural and spatial features of an interior, or telling a story with the aid of graphic signs and paths which render it unique.
The Jointed mosaic is produced in bright, luminous, artistic cathedral glass, thinner than other types. This artistic glass can be coloured with full tone and plain hues or can have a shaded and veined appearance.
Jointed reflects the determination of Mosaico+ to overcome mosaic and decoration stereotypes to explore new pathways, respond to requests for customisation, and offer unconventional scenarios and personalised solutions.
