The execution of this project was demanding and complex. Starting with white terrazzo matrix, patterns were drawn using zinc and bronze strips and marble mosaics pieces, on which resin was subsequently cast.
It would seem as if the detail was engraved directly over the floor, but it is actually integrated with the bronze planks which are cut with high-pressure water jet, affixed to the ground. To ensure the perspective and accuracy of the original visual design, the numerous bronze strips were preserved from both the horizontal plane to the vertical plane.
To complete the compass, we used soda lite marble, specified by Jean Nouvel himself, for its unique shade of blue andveins of light colors. The floors were finished by casting white resin, then polished, a process which includes hand-sanding and hand-polishing, particularly close to the zinc and brass strips. We used experts for each task, every step of the way.
This is a representation of the quality of terrazzo epoxy work Fribel offers. Extremely high quality requirements and standards were met in the creation of the floor, with unbelievable attention to detail.
