Free the imagination with the new Liberty tile range from Trend
The Liberty collection of glass mosaic tiles from Italian pioneer, Trend, has been created to inspire the imagination when designing feature surfaces - tiling, walls, splashbacks, and customised artwork for example.
There are 20 vibrant colours in various subtle textures to choose from and they have been developed for brilliant modular designs in today's corporate and residential interior schemes. Darker Liberty shades range from Onyx to Noir; golden hues include Topaz and
Ochre; Red leads the vibrant colours. Pictured is Liberty Diamond which is joined by
White, Pearl and Opal for neutral backdrops.
Crafted by hand using traditional artisan techniques, the tiles are coloured throughout to achieve consistent shades and prevent fading. They are completely resistant to heat, impact, wear and chemical cleaners.
The collection comprises tiles which are made from recycled glass and recovered mineral products at levels? reaching 78% of total raw material content; enabling specifiers to obtain LEED (and other) points for sustainable building projects.
The modular mosaic tiles are laid together in a sheet format using innovative Trend Plus backing system technology which incorporates polyurethane support making the installation fast, effective and flexible. The tiles can withstand exterior and interior environments and are fantastic for creating accent walls, for example.
Trend, 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, the impressive product and service offering is available in the UK via the head office in Tunbridge Wells along with the growing franchise network of Granite & Trend Transformations showrooms.
