Mosaic Decorated Bar at W Hotel Philadelphia

Bold blooms and decorative divergence at the new W PHILADELPHIA

US-based Marriott International Group’s unmissable new W Hotel in Philadelphia is located right in the centre of town on Chestnut Street.

The architectural design and contemporary interior of the tallest skyscraper on the block was recently completed by Designstudio Ltd and NELSON Worldwide.

The 7th floor lounge bar is a tour de force – its focal point, the abundant use of the Bisazza BOUQUET mosaic decoration. The colourful, outsize flowers of the motif bloom across the ceiling and walls of the bar, recreating a fanciful garden that harmonises with the lush green poolside landscape.

More reserved, but no less sophisticated is an exclusive suite which is decorated with the Bisazza DAMASCO OPALE pattern. Made up of elegantly detailed tiles from the LE GEMME and SMALTO ranges, the pattern is the perfect complement to the room’s eclectic mix of decorative fabrics.

The Bisazza Iridescent Mosaic Tiles In Detail

9 Million Iridescent Tiles

The Entrance Lobby at La Seine Musicale

9 Million Iridescent Tiles

Nine million Bisazza mosaic tiles decorate the dome and foyer of La Seine Musicale auditorium in Paris, designed by architects Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines.

Inspired by the wings of Japanese beetles, the BISAZZA mosaic, produced specifically for the new cultural centre, has an iridescent surface that changes from red to green depending on the angle of the light. Nearly 9 million tiles are spread over a surface area of ​​more than 4,000 square meters.

Located on Seguin Island in the western suburbs of Paris, the striking 4,000 seat, multi-purpose hall is surrounded by an enormous, triangular solar panel ‘sail’ that follows the path of the sun, providing renewable power to the complex.

Hôtel Madame Rêve

Hôtel Madame Rêve - the quintessence of Parisian elegance.

In the very heart of Paris, the recent renovation of the historical central post office complex ‘La Poste du Louvre’ into a major commerce centre, has paved the way for a new icon of luxury hospitality, the Hôtel Madame Rêve.

The birth of the hotel has been directed by renowned entrepreneur and hotelier Laurent Taïeb, with the assistance of Bruno Borrione interior design.

Taïeb used a motto of late French designer Andrée Putman, “life must be golden”, to influence the colour scheme for the interiors.

All of the hotel’s bathrooms are entirely decorated with Bisazza custom mosaic blends in shades of pink LE GEMME tiles, embellished with iridescent tiles from the GLOSS selection.
The same palette was selected for the spa and for the spectacular Grand Suite Jardin’s bathroom, decorated with blush-pink roses in full bloom from the MALMAISON floral mosaic pattern; the quintessence of Parisian elegance.

Gold Bisazza Mosaic at the Bulgari Hotel

Bvlgari London Pool and Spa

The Gold Mosaic Bulgari Hotel Spa

Bvlgari London Pool and Spa

As an entirely new-build property, the Bvlgari London was conceived and designed from inception as a luxury hotel.

Noted architect and designer Antonio Citterio was given free rein to create an environment that is representative of the Bvlgari brand and the status of London as one the world’s most dynamic international cities.

Regarded by many as the crowning achievement of the hotel, the award-winning 2000m² Bvlgari Spa is one of the largest and most exclusive spas in central London.

A 25m swimming pool is lined with shimmering green and gold Bisazza mosaic, whilst the ‘vitality pool’ is entirely covered by gold leaf tiles from the ORO BIS range.

The opulent perfection of the pool and spa truly reflect the exclusivity and design heritage of Bvlgari.

Bisazza Foundation

The Bisazza Foundation

Fondazione Bisazza

Pure theatre

The breathtaking entrance to Fondazione Bisazza is truly a celebration of the luxury mosaic brand.

Conceived as a cultural space dedicated to contemporary design and architecture, the Foundation hosts a Permanent Collection consisting of works and installations by internationally renowned designers, as well as travelling exhibitions.

“If Lewis Carroll’s quintessential Victorian heroine Alice came to life, pressed fast forward and found herself slipping down a twenty-first-century rabbit hole, she’d no doubt feel quite at home if it culminated at the Bisazza Foundation on the outskirts of Vicenza, Italy.” – Ian Phillips

A purely private non-profit initiative, the Foundation is more than anything an expression of the Bisazza family’s artistic passions. The genesis of the Foundation can also be traced back to the appointment of Alessandro Mendini as the firm’s first creative director in 1995.

One of the joys of the Foundation is the sheer diversity of works on display. They come in 2- and 3-D, differ in scale and size, and range stylistically from Pawson and Meier’s minimalistic approach to more expressive creations, such as Jaime Hayon’s Jet Set airplane and Studio Job’s oversized Silverware.

International designer Carlo Dal Bianco envisioned the sweeping curves of the magnificent entrance, clad entirely in the SPRINGROSE NERO mosaic pattern, creating a theatrical contrast to the surrounding buildings.

Dal Bianco’s design represents in so many ways the idea that beautiful design and architecture can have a positive impact on everyday life.

Una Hotel Lobby Interior Design Mosaic

Hotel Una Lobby

Hotel Una Vittoria's Spectacular Lobby

With its unique floral pattern, wrapping around ceiling, walls and floor in a vortex-like design, the incredible lobby of the UNA Hotel in Florence creates a spectacular first impression.

The Fabio Novembre interior design utilises thousands and thousands of luxurious Bisazza mosaic tiles from the OPUS ROMANO range. OPUS ROMANO tesserae are sintered, making them much more hard wearing than most glass mosaic, and therefore perfect for flooring in high traffic areas.

Fabio Novembre says his design for the hotel is created…
“with the idea of capturing the Renaissance spirit of the city in a large communal home away from home, to provide a functional and inspirational stopping place for people from all walks of life.”

Hotel Side Bathroom Design with SMALTO Mosaic

Dazzling Simplicity - Hotel Side, Hamburg

This restroom is just a small part of the superb, contemporary overhaul of the Hotel Side in Hamburg, by Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun.

Around the hotel’s pool and wellness area, big slabs of bold colour are juxtaposed, creating a vibrant, refreshing atmosphere.

The colour blocks emphasise the simple geometry of the internal layout, whilst at the same time energising it.

The pictured restroom’s floor and central plinth has been covered with a single colour of 20mm SMALTO mosaic (SM 15), rich with swirls of pink pigments.

1.5 Million Bisazza Mosaic Tiles Decorate The New Swatch Headquarters

The new Swatch headquarters complex in Biel, Switzerland, covers an area of 25,000 square metres. One of the largest wooden structures in the world, it is more than 240 metres long, 35 metres wide and 27 metres high.

The complex is the work of Pritzker Prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban, whose innovative use of construction materials, rounded shapes, and large windows conveys a feeling of lightness, transparency and brightness to all spaces, which blend harmoniously into the surrounding environment.

At the centre of the the Cité du Temps, which houses the OMEGA Museum and Planet Swatch, an impressive elliptical dome of 700 square metres lies at the fulcrum of the structural frame. It is this central feature that Ban decided to cover with 1.5 million shimmering Bisazza mosaic tesserae, arranged in a customised shading blend created exclusively for this project.


Bisazza Mosaic at the Cartier Foundation

Mendini Bisazza Mosaic Plant Pot

A riot of colour for the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, Paris.

From the creative mind of Alessandro Mendini, this enormous, vibrant plant pot set on a colourful carpet, embellishes an ancient Cedar tree in the garden of the Cartier Foundation.

Mendini spent almost his entire professional life pushing back against pure functionalism. At one time he played a significant role in the Alchimia and Memphis design movements, which were committed to bringing design closer to the world of art.

The huge mosaic-clad flowerpot at the Cartier Foundation emerges from a ‘carpet’ of the same design. With Bisazza OPUS ROMANO mosaic pieces, Mendini created an energetic interplay of geometric forms, defined by bright, vivacious colours. In fact, a masterclass in colour theory.

Mendini said about his work:

I use a lot of decoration because I think decoration is one of the oldest things humanity did — before architecture, before object-making.

The installation at the Cartier Foundation is pure Mendini… a celebration of colour and ornamentation.
