Fun and functionality meet in this fantastic project’s coloring-book-style sea creatures, seaweed and bubbles, all made on site and set within serene shades of ocean blue. Many of the oversized, cheerful forms run up onto the cast-in-place wall base and into the elevator cabs. This 27,000 square-foot installation, integrating 17 different colors with glass and mother-of-pearl aggregates, is a healing work of art. The installation vividly demonstrates the limitless design capabilities of epoxy terrazzo: the only durable, sustainable and nonporous medium that allows for such creative elements to be installed in a floor.
