Terrazzo-magic

Normann Copenhagen presents Terra by Simon Legald, as a new take on a classic material

Using mesmerizing terrazzo, designer Simon Legald has designed Terra – a table with clear references to southern European craft traditions, but with a look that it is both nostalgic and hypermodern.

Simon Legald’s inspiration for Terra came from a visit to a small Italian terrazzo factory, where he fell in love with the expressive material produced there according to original Italian practices. Ground marble is mixed with concrete and cast in large blocks, after which it is cut up.

No two terrazzo sheets are alike - each one has a unique mix of flaked stone with distinctive shapes and interplay of colours.

The terrazzo material is generally used for flooring, but here Simon Legald uses it in a new context, as tabletops for small tables. Terra’s terrazzo tabletops have rounded corners that refer to the table’s twisted steel legs. The legs are painted in the same shade as the tabletop, beautifully binding the two elements together.

Simon has worked with the proportions between the solid tabletop and the more delicate legs, so that the overall expression is both elegant and rustic.

Terra can be used both outdoors and indoors. The legs are made from galvanised steel and the terrazzo top is treated with a sealant so that the table can withstand wind and weather. The product is available in two sizes: a low table with a large top, which is ideal as a coffee table, and a taller but smaller version, which can be used as a side table or plant stand. The two sizes are also attractive when used in combination.

Terra is available in four colours: classic grey and beige, as well as the more funky blue and green.
