AN IDEA BE­COMES REALITY

Let the aes­thet­ics of mo­saics, once a priv­i­lege of an­cient civil­i­sa­tions, in­vade your en­vi­ron­ment with Quatome Mi­cro Mosaics.
The com­bi­na­tion of artis­tic ex­pres­sion and 21st cen­tu­ry tech­nol­o­gy opens up end­less pos­si­bil­i­ties for dec­o­rat­ing your liv­ing space.

THE HIS­TO­RY OF OUR RESEARCH

Mi­cro mo­saics are the re­sult of years of re­search and fine­tun­ing to find the an­swer to the wish­es and solv­ing the frus­tra­tions of our cus­tomers. This has led us to the de­vel­op­ment of the Mi­cro Mo­saics as a dec­o­ra­tion sys­tem that is el­e­gant, es­thet­i­cal, high­ly adapt­able, very plannable and easy to in­stall and maintain.

WHY IS IT SO DIFFERENT?

Quatome Mi­cro Mo­saics go one step fur­ther than a paint­ing or a pic­ture. The ever-chang­ing ef­fect of the struc­ture of Quatome Mi­cro Mo­saics makes the space come alive. You will en­joy the im­age of what you hold dear on many more lev­els.
Quatome Mi­cro Mo­saics give in­te­ri­or de­sign­ers and artists the op­por­tu­ni­ty to show­case their art­work and de­sign in a unique and im­pact­ful set­ting. The in­no­v­a­tive ma­te­r­i­al and our ex­treme­ly flex­i­ble, man­age­able and pre­dictable way of do­ing things help to cre­ate any project in a wide range of shades, sizes and with the de­sired im­pact.
Quatome Mi­cro Mo­saics brings free­dom to the com­mis­sioned artist as the art­work is no longer phys­i­cal­ly bound to a can­vas, but can be used in­doors and out­doors in vil­las, yachts, pri­vate jets, walls or ceil­ings or even swim­ming pools.…

CHOOSE FROM OUR

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.

Pattern-1

Pat­tern Pebbles

A dy­nam­ic ir­reg­u­lar pat­tern that is per­fect to ex­press move­ment re­minds some­times to a nat­ur­al surface.

Pattern-2

Pat­tern Circular

A pat­tern in a fu­tur­is­tic and math­e­mat­ic sys­tem – seen with the eye of today

Pattern-3

Pat­tern Digital

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. 

Pattern-4

Pat­tern Appia

A clas­si­cal pat­tern with his­tor­i­cal roots, flat head­ed ohne Glasur eine ide­ale Bele­gung von Tis­chen und Böden 

Pattern-5

Pat­tern Triangle

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.
