As the raw, textural aesthetic of Brutalism makes its return to architectural and interior trends, designers are seeking new ways of introducing stone to interior environments. While terrazzo tiles have always been the first choice for beautiful, durable flooring, their rich, textural finish is now making them an attractive alternative to traditional wall coverings.
Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles are produced finished and the thinnest available and perfectly suited for use on walls, either as striking feature panels or to complete a timeless interior scheme.
Michael Karakolis, Managing Director of Fibonacci Stone, says the trend to unify floor and wall finishes has been growing steadily overseas and within the more experimental Australian interior design practices in recent months. “We are seeing a wave of projects coming through that are exploring the potential of using terrazzo across the wall and even onto counter surfaces and furniture. The results are striking and sophisticated,” he says.
Celebrated interior designers, such as Melbourne’s David Flack, are among a leading group of designers setting the trend for terrazzo on walls. Flack’s Bendigo Residence project, for example, combines finely handcrafted joinery with Fibonacci’s Storm terrazzo tiles, which feature across floors and walls. Storm terrazzo tiles have pale aggregates of white, bone and pearl grey marble and stormy grey cement. The extension of terrazzo from floors to walls creates an elegant, bold yet calm aesthetic within the beautiful Bendigo residence.
Maria Danos Architecture is another design firm to recognise the beauty of terrazzo beyond flooring. The selection of Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles for feature wall panels at Mister + Miss Café in Melbourne’s Mont Albert creates added warmth and texture to the overall design.
Similarly, the Banksia development by leading Melbourne architects McBride Charles Ryan features terrazzo tiles on its floors and splash backs to ensure the interior design is just as striking as its distinctive exterior. A celebration of fine craftsmanship, each apartment features beautiful Australian timbers, such as Spotted Gum and Victorian Ash.
Fibonacci Stone’s elegant Nougat terrazzo tiles were considered the perfect complement and a fitting choice for the luxurious Banksia residential project. “The terrazzo tiles were specified because they provide that additional sense of luxury,” says Mario Ferreira, Senior Marketing Coordinator Residential with MAB Corporation.
As the timeless appeal of terrazzo tiles spreads from floors to walls, Fibonacci Stone is the number one choice for quality, durability and variety.
