Eco Glass _ 100% Recycled _ 100% Made in Italy.
The material and its relationship with the places where people live are the underlying themes of the micromosaico designs to offer a new balance between man and nature. Discarded glass, crushed and ground into a powder, is blended with water as a bonding agent to become a new material to shape. mosaicomicro is a brand whose name derives from the intrinsic qualities of the product: mosaic and micro. Prized for its size and prized due to the material making it up: glass.
Glass powder, recycled from reclaimed television screens and computer monitors, is processed and shaped to create a “micro” mosaic. Its small size and light weight ensure the lowest possible CO2 emissions, thereby decreasing the firing time in production and also making it a lighter product to transport. The nature of recycled glass and the production process make every micro-tile unique and exclusive; each tile features a “dynamic” micro-surface: glossy, matt, velvety, polished or patterned.
The unique quality of mosaicomicro also lies in the colour. Every tile is a shade of the same basic colour family, whether blue or red, grey or black. The same tiles bonded to backing can cover flat or curved surfaces to create a continuous, seamless surface.
The nature of the recycled glass and the production process makes each micro-chip different to the others; each one of them gives life to a “dynamic” micro-surface: shiny, matte, velvety, smooth or textured.
The chips united together into sheets can cover planar and curved spaces, without any interruption, giving the sense of continuous surface.
The grout colour plays an important role in its application as it changes the perception of its colour and appearance. As a result, the grout is considered a fundamental decorative feature.
MosaicoMicro has chosen to emphasize the grout-tile relationship by implementing a random mounting process, thereby achieving the “Micro Random” version
By appropriating new chromatic languages, MosaicoMicro has expanded the Micro Multiplem collection especially for Milano Design Week 2O18.
The concept emerged from a study of the geometric shape of the square, deconstructed into its primary shapes, such as triangles and trapezoids, that come together to create architectural structures.
The year 2O18 marked the start of the new partnership of mosaicomicro with Piero Lissoni that resulted in the Sumi-e collection. Its absolute originality is entirely encapsulated in the desire to modify the proportions of traditional mosaics, introducing mixed formats in different sizes.
