More than 2,500 square meters, an eclectic space and a strong Italian or rather Le Marche identity. On Wednesday the first Eataly in Canada was opened with no other than Grandinetti chosen for the flooring.
A small habitation constructed at the end of the 19th century in the historical centre of Ostuni in the Province of Brindisi, the desire to combine tradition and innovation and focus on detail.
The challenge faced by the architects Oronzo Scalone and Giovanni Moro of MGSO Architettura&Design in the “Casetta d l’Ora” project was just this.
Turn your nose up at the thought of combining modern design with terrazzo tiles? You couldn’t be more wrong? Terrazzo tiles, highly traditional flooring that is often found in old houses, is still a highly elegant choice when combined with modern design.

Five exciting days, this was how it was for us at Cersaie, the international event for surface design and bathroom furnishing supplies.

Patchwork or “pieced work” is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. The larger design is usually based on repeat patterns built up with different fabric shapes (which can be different colors). These shapes are carefully measured and cut, basic geometric shapes making them easy to piece together. Precise joining by the most part with a quarter inch foot makes for a patchwork that lies flat without puckers. (Wikipedia).
This technique was born in an age long and it comes from common sense: from the same principle were born terrazzo tiles floor, an industrial product born after the invention of Portland cement as a binder, an essential component to combine residues from processing of the precious marble in forms of different sizes.

Il pontile verso rotonda ha il colore dell’acquamarina, se chiudi gli occhi e ti aggrappi alla balaustra ti sembra di aver poggiato i piedi sopra un’onda solida, ne senti il profumo ed il rumore, il frastuono a volte. Passo passo ti allontani dalla terra e piano ti tuffi in uno specchio d’acqua tondo che non bagna, senti col naso e con gli occhi il sale nell’aria, distingui il passaggio delle onde che vagano lontane dallo sbatter contro i granelli di sabbia; ti meraviglierai di come un orizzonte così semplice, una linea dritta contrastata di azzurro, porti con se migliaglia di poesie, di quadri, di amori, ti stupirai nel pensare che quella linea riflette l’iride di occhi che, come i tuoi, stanno scrutando il cielo, l’acqua e oltre, il mare.
Così nacque quel colore, frutto di uno lungo ed articolato studio sulle emozioni vissute in riva al mare, nato da precise osservazioni sui colori diversi riflessi dalle onde al mattino, alla sera e di notte.
