For 2011, leading Italian mosaic tile maker Trend has enriched its top-line Liberty collection with 10 sumptuous new colours, all handcrafted from stained glass and featuring the signature chromatic and iridescent textures of this exclusive design.
Composed of hand-cut tesserae in a variety of compatible shapes, Liberty reinterprets glass mosaic design, by presenting a selection of different tile shades and sizes, with both straight and sinuous lines, so that the reflective light of the material is the predominant decorative element.
The new Liberty creations
- Extend from the shimmering brilliance of Diamond and Pearl, through the contemporary look of Denim and Dove, to the dramatic, deep tones of Bronzite, (pictured here) Onyx and Tobacco.
- They join six existing colours that include tonal Black and White statements, as well as luminescent Blue and Red stained glass effects.
- Ideal for accent mosaic panels or flamboyant showcase walls and ceilings, Liberty is offered in film-faced modules measuring approximately 26cm x 31cm and retails from £275 to £320 per square metre.
In line with Trend’s ‘green’ ethos, focusing on the use of eco-sustainable materials, Liberty mosaics are made from up to 75% post-consumer recycled glass.
This allows architects, interior designers and builders to obtain LEED credits for sustainable buildings certification and enables homeowners to select Liberty glass mosaics with a clear environmental conscience.
Unique to Trend in concept and execution, the Liberty collection results from a design collaboration with celebrated Italian artist Giulio Candussio, creator of the dramatic ‘Iridescent Lightning’ mosaic mural at New York’s World Trade Centre, and enables his artistic vision to become part of today’s interior design language.
