Reclaiming the unnoticed

Terrazzo is a fascinating composite material produced from layers of cement interspersed by chips of stone - most commonly marble, glass or other appropriate aggregate. Since 2011, Terrazzo Project (⌂) creates tailor­made terrazzo furniture and offers interior and product design consultancy services focusing on the appropriateness of materials and their combination.

Throughout the years, ⌂ has developed various processes fusing modern­day technology and traditional craftsmanship, exploiting terrazzo as a lightweight material. We want to be known as the go-to people for terrazzo. In spite of its ubiquity, terrazzo remains a largely unknown material: it is everywhere, yet no one notices. This is precisely what fuelled ⌂'s interest in reclaiming such and ancient and unexpected material - it all started with memories of high school hallways and classroom floors.

I see tiny holes and cracks on the surface of my new terrazzo table, should I return it?

As terrazzo (engineered stone) is hand made, it may show slight variations in grain size, colour, cement mix and occasionally small superficial cracks. These variations are inherent to the nature of the material and should not be seen as defects or quality problems. Like any other natural stone, terrazzo requires basic maintenance and attention to ensure its longevity and beauty. Use only products which are stated to be suitable for engineered stone or natural stone care.

How can I clean and maintain my TP product without damaging the surface?

We only recommend pH neutral detergents for the care and maintenance of terrazzo or any engineered stone. Carefully read the instructions on the detergent’s label and if in doubt, perform a small test on an inconspicuous area. The use of acidic or highly alkaline detergents can damage the surface and should never be used. Wash surfaces with a soft cloth and a neutral pH detergent diluted in water following the recommendations of the detergent’s manufacturer. Acidic liquids commonly used such as vinegar, lemon, soft drinks, fruit juices, and wine can erode the material, causing stains. Avoid exposing terrazzo to chemicals and solvents, especially paint removers, that might contain trichloroethane and methylene chloride. Keep solvents, acetone, alcohol, paint thinners, detergents containing bleach, laundry bluing, highly alkaline liquids such as bleach, caustic soda or oven cleaners, acids, oily soaps, descalers, markers or ink, abrasive and micro-abrasive detergents and sponges away from the surface. avoid using any detergent not specifically designed for marble surface or engineered stone, especially acidic and highly alkaline detergents.

I did exactly what you recommended and it doesn’t work as expected. What are my options?

Material General Care Advice

We only recommend pH neutral detergents for the care and maintenance of terrazzo or any engineered stone. Carefully read the instructions on the detergent’s label and if in doubt, perform a small test on an inconspicuous area. The use of acidic or highly alkaline detergents can damage the surface and should never be used. Wash surfaces with a soft cloth and a neutral pH detergent diluted in water following the recommendations of the detergent’s manufacturer. Acidic liquids commonly used such as vinegar, lemon, soft drinks, fruit juices, and wine can erode the material, causing stains. Avoid exposing terrazzo to chemicals and solvents, especially paint removers, that might contain trichloroethane and methylene chloride. Keep solvents, acetone, alcohol, paint thinners, detergents containing bleach, laundry bluing, highly alkaline liquids such as bleach, caustic soda or oven cleaners, acids, oily soaps, descalers, markers or ink, abrasive and micro-abrasive detergents and sponges away from the surface. avoid using any detergent not specifically designed for marble surface or engineered stone, especially acidic and highly alkaline detergents.

Material Protection

There are many waxes, sealants and surface treatments specifically designed for marble based engineered stones. These treatments help to enhance surface brightness, improve resistance and to protect from casual contact with staining liquids. While these products do offer protection and can extend the resistance period, they do not make a stain proof surface and will require reapplication from time to time.
