New Bisazza CEMENTILES

CEMENTILES - a brand new collection featuring a sophisticated, contemporary interpretation of traditional cement tiles

From modern geometric designs to classic motifs, the new decorative tiles from Bisazza bring breathtaking new possibilities to interior design.

Traditionally, cement tiles were a popular feature of the palaces and mansions of nobility and the privileged classes during the second half of the 1800s and early 1900s.

Entirely re-invented in a modern context, the collection is designed to celebrate the decorative style of the past through expressive artistic language that reveals the creative genius of each of the project designers: Tom Dixon, Jaime Hayon, India Mahdavi, Paola Navone, Carlo Dal Bianco, and the Bisazza Design Studio. More recently, the Campana Brothers have also added their name to this exclusive list.

Made entirely by hand and available in two formats - 20x20cm squares or 20x23cm hexagons - each tile is a unique creation. This detailed and highly skilled craftsmanship adds allure and personality to the collection, which features a rich palette of colours and a sumptuous wealth of contemporary and classic graphic motifs.

The result is a bold, modern and highly expressive new medium for interior design.

Bisazza ALBERT yellow mosaic by Ferruccio Laviani

2017 Preview: ALBERT by Ferruccio Laviani

Bisazza’s first partnership with designer Ferruccio Laviani has produced some astonishing contemporary mosaic collections.

ALBERT (pictured) along with GEORGE, WILLIAM and PHILIP are beautifully rendered, timeless designs inspired by Scottish tartan, which represent the warp and weft of woven fabric.

“The weave of a fabric is much like the grid of a mosaic, which is why I used it as the basis for what would become the collection. I broke up the structural lines of the design and reinterpreted them with mosaic tiles in order to create a textured pattern that would maintain the same vibe as the material itself…” Ferruccio Laviani.

ALBERT and Laviani’s other designs will be available in the Bisazza 2017 Collection.

All the new Collections will be on display soon at the Bisazza Australia website.


FLOW lagoon a Bisazza pool mosaic

FLOW: outer beauty, inner strength

Combining harmonious shades from the FLOW collection, FLOW Blends are beautiful yet highly resilient mosaic patterns, making them a superb choice for pools.

The highly tactile, textural surface allows the light to gently ripple across the design, whilst also contributing to the mosaic’s excellent anti-slip properties.

Additionally, FLOW has been proven to be resistant to thermal shock, frost, colour fade, chemicals and staining.

Durable yet alluring, FLOW is available in eight different blend variations with a tile size of 20mm x 20mm. Pictured is Lagoon with Grigio Azzurro Fillgel grout.

Bisazza Platino Mosaic

New Platino Mosaic: 100% Platinum, 0% Oxidisation

Created especially for use in or around water, there is a new, luxurious alternative to white gold. Bisazza’s new Platino mosaic offers the same exclusivity, but with a total guarantee against oxidisation.

The tiles are composed of 100% platinum - nothing else - which means they can even be trimmed or cut to size and still remain impervious to the effects of water.

The purity of the mosaic’s composition also means that the tiles have a completely uniform colour, for an added touch of perfection.

Platino mosaic is available in the Bisazza BIS version with a small bevel (the ‘wall’ configuration), in 20x20mm and 10x10mm sizes and with a choice of smooth or undulating surface texture.

Platino mosaic tiles are presented with a certificate of authenticity, which validates their composition – 100% platinum – and provides a total guarantee for their use in water.

Platino can be specified as a replacement for Oro Bis Bianco (white gold) in any Bisazza blend, shading blend or decoration, as well as any personalised designs, at no additional cost, for areas where mosaic designs come into contact with water or are completely immersed.

In swimming pools, showers and very humid environments such as saunas, new Bisazza Platino will completely prevent oxidisation.

Mira Moon bathroom interior design mosaic

Legendary meets contemporary

Central to Marcel Wanders’ design concept for the Mira Moon hotel in Hong Kong is the legend of the Chinese Moon Festival. Exploring traditional Chinese art and culture but with a contemporary twist, Wanders make startling use of Bisazza mosaic, recalling traditional Chinese painting techniques.

From soft and subtle watercolour-wash to vibrant floral hues and contrasting black outlines, Bisazza mosaic lights up Marcel’s design in spectacular fashion. Using a digital design technique for the Mosaic areas, Marcel truly pushes the medium into breathtaking new territory.

Characters from the Moon Festival tale are represented throughout the hotel’s many vistas, creating a potent cultural experience, whilst referencing a modern yet welcoming colour palette of orange, brown and light green.

Marcel Wanders and Bisazza have created for Mira Moon one of the most distinctive, vibrant hotel interiors in the region. If you’re passing Causeway Bay, why not take a look for yourself? Mira Moon Hotel.

Bayside Resort Garden Pool and Spa

A multi-award winning design milestone

With his signature flair and technical expertise, Steve Taylor of COS Design provided a truly breathtaking solution for the owners of this modern, Melbourne home with incredible views of Port Phillip Bay.

With 17m from street to door and a vertical drop of 5.1m, the space has been extensively terraced, placing the pool as a central part of the guest entrance experience with the incorporation of a large acrylic window. The views of the pool from the balcony above are equally amazing, particularly as the spa doubles as a night-time reflection pond.

His discerning clients having the highest expectations, Steve and his team concluded that only the very highest quality mosaic would do justice to the beautiful pool and spa, specifying Bisazza Gemme mosaic (GM20.77) for the spa and Bisazza Vetricolor (VTC 20.56) for the pool.

Steve commented, “the choice of material for the pool and spa was critical, especially with the large window in the pool making everything so much more visible. We wanted something that feels special and the aesthetic qualities of the Bisazza mosaic helped us to achieve the perfect look.”

Perhaps not surprisingly, the project has been recognised by a string of awards from AILDM (The Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers), HIA (The Housing Industry Association) and Landscaping Victoria.
