Quatome Micro Mosaics are the result of years of research on materials and finetuning of high-quality manufacturing.
We endeavoured to answer the wishes and solve the frustrations of creators to delight their customers in a novel way. This led us to the development of Quatome Micro Mosaics, as a decoration system that is elegant, esthetical, highly adaptable, very plannable, and easy to install and maintain.
Quatome Micro Mosaics allow you to make the selection of the artwork that you want for your living space. We cooperate closely with designers and artists to execute these images with Quatome Micro Mosaics.
A dynamic irregular pattern that is perfect to express movement reminds sometimes to a natural surface.
A pattern in a futuristic and mathematic system – seen with the eye of today
A repetitive motif that your eye recognises quickly and soon forgets to discover the design that is presented on it. With every step you take however your eye refocuses on the pattern, to ignore it afterwards and rediscover other elements of the image.
A classical pattern with historical roots, flat headed ohne Glasur eine ideale Belegung von Tischen und Böden
A structured pattern that has slightly larger surfaces, great to evocate images with larger, coloured surfaces or for more linear artwork.
ON REQUEST OUR ARTISTS CREATE INDIVIDUAL PATTERNS
Our material is a durable combination of Alumina and glass, shaped in small mosaic elements (124 pcs/dm², 12.375pcs/m²) separated by joint filler (grout) no thicker than 1,2 mm.
The translucent effect obtained by reflection of light by each Micro Mosaic brings a different experience, no matter where you are in the room.
To add to drama the grout can be soft-toned, shiny or even self-lighting. Treated for outdoor use to stop fungi and algae.
These are the support for designs of artistic freedom in any form and colour, with size only limited to the limits of the space itself.
We have own mosaic patterns prepared for usage, but a bespoke pattern can be developed jointly considering the technical requirements for production and further finishing.
Both the material and the shape of each Micro Mosaic limits the risk of scratches.
HOW QUATOME CREATE MICRO-MOSAICS
Each realisation of a Micro Mosaic Tableau includes full project management by Quatome throughout the duration of the project.
The price includes all costs from the initial concept, technical advice in the creative process, pre-glazing inspection, production and installation within a radius of 1250 km.
1. MANUFACTURING CLUSTERS
From high-precision tools, we manufacture the so-called clusters in technical ceramics, the likes of which we are otherwise only familiar with in laboratory equipment, catalytic converters or dental technology. In the groupings of the clusters, we determine the design for the individually visible tesserae. These are then individually coated by hand with a layer of glass and fused with the ceramic. The result is an optic of the highest manual precision that offers the viewer a completely new optical resolution.
2. MOUNTING THE CLUSTERS ON A BASE SUPPORT
After a visual quality check, the clusters that are deemed perfect are mounted on a base support according to a previously determined pattern and thus prepared in a locked manner for colouring — a canvas is created, so to speak, for the ultimately designed motif from the artist’s hand.
3. GROUTING THE CLUSTERS
After the glaze colours have been burnt in, the clusters are installed as a large-format installation at the desired destination. As a final step, the recesses are grouted, the motif becomes an absolutely precise mosaic with the patented “sequin effect”. The effect between the cementitious joint material and the high-gloss reflective surface of the mosaic elements is what makes Micro Mosaic so unique.
