The beautiful story of terrazzo dates to early Greek and Egyptian times. The ancient art of combining marble fragments and cement reached the height of its glory in 16th and 17th century Venice and was revived in the modern style in the 1930s and 40s. Today, terrazzo is once again enjoying a renewed popularity as the historic roots meld with innovation and technology translating into a cultured, worldly expression brilliant for contemporary architecture and interior design.
Walker Zanger has partnered with one of Italy’s oldest family-owned terrazzo tile makers to bring home the elegant and versatile Fragments Terrazzo collection. High-quality craftsmanship supports a tradition of masterfully balancing ancient craft techniques with modern production processes to form artful floors, walls, facades and other surfaces applications.
