Nemo Tile + Stone
June 16, 2017
Torrone is a fine-glazed porcelain tile from Nemo Tile + Stone crafted to resemble traditional terrazzo flooring. Once common during Ancient Greek times, terrazzo was originally made from mixing chips of pottery and marble, setting these materials in a lime and clay mixture and then sealing with goat milk. Though technology has progressed, the onsite mixing and pouring of terrazzo is particularly labor intensive and costly. However, terrazzo’s durability and impenetrable nature have helped it remain a sought after flooring option.
Nemo‘s Torrone collection responds to the drawbacks of installing terrazzo – including time, manpower and cost – through the use of high-definition printing and detailed craftsmanship, which recreates the look of terrazzo, down to the slight shimmer of the marble chips when hit with light. This new line is available in four colorways and durable, large-format square and hexagon tiles.
