Retro Mosaic Tile Design – Wall

Retro Meets Mosaic Tile Design

We would like to introduce you a Retro Mosaic Tile design project that we created about 10 years ago, for a living room wall in a villa in Cyprus. The end result was just beautiful! Partially shiny Mosaic Tiles, which made themselves visible from matte colored mosaics. And that in a style from the 60’s. But how does such a process go? How long did such a custom made Mosaic Tile design project take?

Planning and design

The design, i.e. the shape and colors, that was used in this project is actually one from the 60’s. We didn’t really add anything great, that was the customer’s request. We just sat down together to find the best colors that could be used in this project. It is very important to find tiles that are also well suited for the mosaic process. For this we, as Art Studio, selected the colors according to the gloss and matte and prepared for our client, a part as a demonstration model mosaic. The goal of this preliminary process is to show our clients how the final visual result will look like.

Each custom Mosaic Tile design project prefers different skills that played a very big role in the final result. Since such a project is made with pure handwork, it is also our main task to show our clients where there might appear visual differences during the implementation. For this reason, it is important for us to show our clients the final result that will follow through the implementation. This way we can plan changes at the very beginning.

Production time

The time needed for the design and production of such a Mosaic Tile Design (Wall) is about 0.5 m2 / day. In other words, it took us about 3 weeks to set up such a project. The application takes less time, about 1 day for gluing to the wall and 1 day for grouting.

Smooth application Process

Through our experience we have accumulated over 150 Mosaic Tile Design projects in the last 20 years, will help execute a smooth Mosaic application process. Just imagine that the large wall mosaic is divided into numbered pieces and can be easily applied to any wall by your local tiler. The end result is irreplaceable as this mosaic project has turned into a handmade piece of art on your wall.
