M+ offers a service of product customization both as an adaptation of its ranges a creation of customised materials for architectural and interior design projects.
We put in place a mix of refined skills, experimentation and cultural knowledge of mosaic to create tailor-made designs and replicas of inspirational photos, using the artistic technique of computerized mosaic and opus.
The colour range is virtually infinite, while the colours themselves are vividly brilliant.
The traditional mosaic can be created:
- indirectly, by working on a paper backing that is then applied onto the wall or floor
- directly, onto a permanent support or glass fibre mesh that is later applied to the final support.
custom artistic tecnique
This is considered the most noble of all mosaics. The chips are generally created in Venetian enamels, obtained by melting the glass in a crucible and then pressing it to transform the raw material into a rainbow of coloured disks.
The colours are limited to the standard range of production, so the final effect is somewhat economic compared to traditional technique, although rich in detail.
The fragments are assembled according to the drawing on sheets of paper of various sizes, which are then cut and numbered. Through their setup, the fragments generate an irregular pattern that follows the design lines.
custom opus incertum
A technique that is deeply rooted in the construction works of ancient Romans.
The chips that make up the mosaic are in glass paste in an industrial format and then cut by hand with special pliers into halves or quarters or irregularly, according to specific proportions and to the subject.
