Painting With Mosaic


This lively abstract design covers a wall of the Bluespoon Restaurant, at the Andaz Hotel in Amsterdam.

The hotel’s entire interior theme was designed by Marcel Wanders and includes this purely decorative piece.

In typical Wanders style, this custom design breaks the mould of typical mosaics, being a free-flowing visual which looks at first glance like daubs and strokes from an artist’s paintbrush.

Closer observers are able to experience an entirely new dimension to the piece, as the rich colours and breathtaking detail of luxurious Bisazza mosaic tesserae reveal themselves.

The design is not only a beautiful, energetic, decorative artwork; it’s also an illustration of the limitless possibilities that can happen when you combine mosaic and pure imagination.
