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.

Bisazza Rose Gold Detail

Rose Gold - A New Level of Sophistication

To complement the Oro Bis collection of yellow and white gold mosaic, an entirely new Rose Gold option has been created for 2016.

As with the other Oro Bis mosaics, the 24kt gold leaf is hand produced in Florence using a traditional craft method of beating the gold ingot with leather straps.

This gold is then gathered up and encapsulated in fine silica glass, to which a red resin has been added.

The resulting Rose Gold is a brand new twist on gold mosaic, with a warmth and sophistication all of its own.

The new Bisazza Rose Gold mosaic is finished with either a smooth or wavy surface, at a size of 10mm x 10mm.

Rose Gold is available as part of the Bisazza 2016 Collection.

Bisazza TULIPS GREY by Marcel Wanders

New Tulips Grey - The Beauty of Contrasts

The TULIPS GREY mosaic is a new interpretation
of the original TULIPS by Marcel Wanders.

Set on a contemporary, neutral background, Marcel's gigantic, swirling, brightly coloured Dutch tulips spring to life in vivid reds and pinks, yellows and oranges, adding a vivacious quality to any room.

In truly innovative Bisazza style, the design also brings together two contrasting techniques. The background pattern is a contemporary digital design, formed from 10mm x 10mm mosaic. The colourful tulips are skilfully hand-cut and placed using premium glass enamel mosaic, positioned over the background to form the finished design.

This combined technique allows the designer more freedom, so the tulips can be positioned to perfectly suit the environment. And of course, every mosaic piece is 100% pure Bisazza.

Tulips Grey is available as part of the Bisazza 2016 Collection.

Bisazza CHINOISERIE Decoration Mosaic

Chinoiserie - A Dream of China

Drawing inspiration from the delicate Messein porcelain of 18th Century Germany, Carlo Dal Bianco has created CHINOISERIE, a romantic and magnificent decoration mosaic collection.

Europe in the 18th Century was infatuated with a dream-like, idealistic concept of the Far East. The original Chinoiserie became a very popular trend which was most famously depicted in decorative porcelain tableware of the period.

Carlo Dal Bianco's 'imagined' China however, is manifested in six, beautiful panels which depict the characters and scenes of an antiquated Asian life.

Exploiting a combination of techniques, the images are created in sumptuous, 10mm x 10mm, 24k gold mosaic tiles, handmade using the famous Bisazza 'artistic technique.' These lie resplendent against the digitally created white mosaic background.

Carlo Dal Bianco comments:

I love mosaic. It's a technique that's part of me, like drawing, and I use it as an expression of the beautiful things I'd like to surround myself with. It's an ongoing personal research as an antidote against mediocrity. It's an extraordinary matter, shiny and full of personality. It's a little thing which can arouse big emotions.

CHINOISERIE will be available as part of the Bisazza 2016 Collection.

Bisazza Perished White - Design: Studio Job

Perished: Extravagant , Violent, Breathtaking

PERISHED is a brand new mosaic pattern by Studio Job, in a neo-Gothic style. The graphic pattern depicts real or imaginary animal skeletons caught in a fanciful dance of death. 

The digitally-created design comes in a black and white version - PERISHED White, and in PERISHED Rose Gold, created using rose gold mosaic tiles, introduced for the very first time in a Bisazza decoration.

We want to create a collection that is exclusive for the quality of the materials and techniques. Through the skeletons, violent and innocent, their direct graphic forms depict our times which are extravagant and violent... - Studio Job

Studio Job established in Antwerp in 2000, is a collaboration between Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel, both graduates of the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven. Studio Job's commitment to upholding traditional techniques of skilled craftsmanship reflects an ongoing interest in the revival of historical arts, but with a contemporary twist.

PERISHED will be available as part of Bisazza's 2016 Collection.
