Through Collecta, his range of sculptural objects and furniture pieces, industrial designer Alberto Bellamoli breathes new life into Terrazo–a traditional material. Lifting it up from its classical two-dimensional application on floors, and into sculptural expression, he plays with the composition of the material and lends it a bolder, eye-catching pattern of spherical shapes. At the same time, Alberto celebrates and perpetuates this inherently sustainable material–created from the off-cuts and waste of marble production. For Collecta, Alberto returned to his roots–Verona, in Italy–where a community of local artisans and small companies have been working together, in synergy, to make Terrazzo for centuries.
