VetroVivo is an Italian company with a new idea.
Their mosaics made their debut at Cersaie this year and I just found out about them the other day.
Their glass mosaics come in 18 individual shapes and there are 53 colors available in the entire collection. These mosaics have to be designed and they have to be set piece by piece.
It's an interesting idea and I like the fact that the grout plays as big a role in the appearance of these mosaics as do the glass pieces.
But in order to pull off some of the designs shown on their website, you'd end up skim coating an entire wall or surface with grout. You'd use a sanded grout obviously but I'm left wondering how well wide swaths of skim-coated grout hold up to use and time.
Aside from that, these mosaics are really beautiful. Don't you think?
Would you install these VetroVivo mosaics in your own home?
