Terrazzo is an ancient decorative technique dating to Roman times. Marble chips, mixed with cement, created amazing patterns, art, and durable designs for palaces, villas and temples.
In the late 19th century terrazzo was prevalent in the USA and Europe as the mark of a quality structure. Schools, theaters, hotels, bank, etc., frequently had lobbies and public area floors in terrazzo with logos and emblems in zinc, brass and bronze.
In the 1990’s, terrazzo was revived with the advent of epoxy based resins and colors. Epoxy matrix was much thinner. more colorful, more flexible, and quicker to cure than cementitious types.
Since then, terrazzo floor coverings have flourished for large venues such as convention centers, airports, public buildings and theaters.
