Trend - for beautiful surfaces
As one of the world's leading producers of coloured glass mosaic, Venetian enamel, gold leaf tesserae and engineered stone surfaces, Trend Group works with today's most celebrated designers, architects and artists.
The stunning results are seen in residential, commercial and public buildings around the globe and the UK has a network of franchisees with a commercial sales team to answer the demand for these stunning, bespoke surfaces.
The Group, which was founded by Dr Pino Bisazza and Andrea Di Giuseppe, combines the 19th century alchemy of its Angelo Orsoni furnace in Venice with the 21st century innovations of its engineered agglomerate manufacturing plant in Sebring, Florida. With production and assembly facilities on four continents and operations in more than 50 countries, Trend is currently distributing over 1.5 million sq.m of glass mosaic tile and 800,000 sq.m of agglomerate surfaces each year.
The Trend Group is shaped by a deep commitment to environmental concerns and cultural vibrancy. On the one hand, Trend actively supports the contemporary art world, is a leading member of the Intrapresae Collezione Guggenheim Association, and funds the biannual Orsoni Prize for International Mosaic Art. On the other, the company moved early and aggressively to reduce the ecological impact of its processes and products. Production is designed to consume fewer raw materials and energy resources, to recycle otherwise wasted materials, and to increase the natural durability of its applications.
In the UK, the impressive Trend product and service offering is available via the head office in Tunbridge Wells along with the growing franchise network of Granite & Trend Transformations showrooms.
