For the design of a prestigious apartment in Milan, the tiles of a new stone floor were designed and handmade by Venetian craftsmen. The challenge for these artisans was to create a floor tile which expressed the unique disorder found on site during demolition. Inserts of Thassos marble, irregularly positioned according to a rule, within a bed of white cement and Carrara marble chips, aims to recreate the image of the wooden laths which served as substructure for the original parquet floor.
