Is there a better way to introduce TERRAZZO by Diresco Belgian Quartz then a short play and a puppy!? We think not.  Diresco just dropped the hottest five colors mimicking the ever popular look of terrazzo.

 

Behind the Look

To capitalize on this trend, Diresco and Belgian Designer, Bram Bollen, of Studio PlanB teamed up. Bram is a product designer in Europe known for his sleek contemporary aesthetic.  Together they have injected modernity into traditional terrazzo.

The 5 trendy new colors are quartz based and have the same strength, durability and ease of maintenance as all of the Diresco products.

The detailed yet simple design of these colors allows designers to be flexible and use in both modern and classic spaces.

 

 

 

Do you have a favorite?

Prepare to fall in love! These new colors are available in both polished and velvet finish.  Polished surfaces provide a radiant finish with an impeccable linear reflection that presents a depth and sophistication to the material.

While, the velvet surfaces provide a matte or non-reflective finish that is much softer to the eye and touch. The luxurious look and feel of the velvet finish evokes a relaxed and natural feel.

The difference between Diresco TERRAZZO & Traditional Terrazzo:

Diresco’s TERRAZZO is different from traditional terrazzo in two significant ways.

The Aggregate:  Traditional terrazzo uses crushed pieces of marble, granite, glass, even mirror. Diresco’s TERRAZZO uses crushed pieces of previously pressed Diresco quartz slabs for their aggregate.

The Aesthetic: Traditional terrazzo is usually densely packed with aggregate and held together with a cementitious or epoxy binder.  TERRAZZO’s aggregate is more sparsely broadcast allowing the background color to stand out.

Applications

Certainly, this series is ideal for kitchen countertops, vanities, and furniture, but these slabs could also be cut down and used as a flooring option in a smaller residential application when traditional terrazzo is cost prohibitive.

We saved the best for last: Diresco TERRAZZO is also BIO/UV safe, making these the perfect option for outdoor use.

DIRESCO USA ANNOUNCES NEW DISTRIBUTOR PARTNERSHIP WITH TERRAZZO & MARBLE SUPPLY COMPANIES FOR THE MIDWEST.

January 4th, 2016 (Irvine, CA) – Diresco USA, the direct Partner and master importer of Diresco Quartz Surfaces of Belgium, has named Terrazzo & Marble Supply Co., as the exclusive Diresco Distributor for the Midwest. The official launch occurred in August, 2015 and replaced Aetna Plywood as the distributor in the region. “The creation of this Partnership is especially significant because it is a culmination of the learnings and experiences of both of our companies,” said Scott V. MacLeod, Diresco USA’s CEO. “Our customers’ guidance, feedback and support has allowed us to continue our success in one of the most progressive and highest growth categories in our industry. Our new Partnership with T&M will only elevate our ability to expose our premium quartz surfaces to hundreds of thousands of homeowners and industry professionals throughout the Midwest each year.” Prior to the official launch, the company held discussions with key customers in order to make the transition a smooth one. “The reception was overwhelmingly positive,” observed MacLeod. “In fact, the general reaction was more or less ‘you couldn’t have picked a better Partner’ and ‘we can’t wait to be a part of your Team’ ”

Diresco USA remains an independent, privately-held company with aggressive plans for national expansion over the next two years. “Despite the significant growth we’re embarking on,” says MacLeod, “the most critical aspects of our company will stay the same. Our management team remains fully intact, and the way we conduct business – openly, honestly, respectfully, and deliberately – will never change.” Everything we do must be about quality, not quantity. This is the only way to ensure we stay true to who we are and provide the Premium Branded Experience that we promise”, says MacLeod. “T&M allows us to continue to build customer champions throughout the Midwest market.”
