VIA Cement Mosaic Tiles – The Perfect Blend of Tradition and Innovation
At VIA, we believe in cherishing the past while embracing the future. Our essence lies in the fusion of tradition and innovation, a deep appreciation for history, and a vision that looks ahead. Inspired by the captivating patterns of cement mosaic tiles, we reimagine them in contemporary colors and modern contexts, breathing new life into these time-honored designs.
Our journey began in the late 1990s, amidst the bustling streets of Barcelona’s Tailoring Quarter. The VIA project was born, a multi-layered work akin to the intricate beauty of cement mosaic and terrazzo slabs. It all started when Norbert Kummermehr, a young machine builder and business economist, sought a suitable apartment in Barcelona. Fate brought him together with Almut Lager, a skilled carpenter and interior designer, both sharing a passion for patterned floor tiles. Their paths intertwined, and a family project was set in motion – VIA.
At VIA, we understand the allure of cement mosaic panels, with their charming patterns, delightful colors, and inviting texture that creates a unique atmosphere in any space. Our terrazzo embodies the strength of local tradition, crafted with an array of stone chippings, exuding elegance and durability, just as it has for generations. And with our pavement tiles, we offer embossed pattern panels designed for outdoor use – perfect for pathways, yards, and terraces, blending functionality with style.
Our commitment to preserving time-honored practices is evident in the meticulous craftsmanship of our materials. Each terrazzo tile is a testament to traditional manufacturing, ensuring enduring quality and timeless appeal. As for our chalk paints, they grace rooms with a characteristic matte finish, radiating beauty, and elegance. Highly pigmented and breathable, they lend an artistic touch to every surface they touch.
At VIA, we take pride in our extensive range of historic cement mosaic, terrazzo, and pavement tiles. Our mission is to carry forward a centuries-old tradition, ensuring that old-world patterns and manufacturing processes remain alive and cherished. Our versatile panels find their place in old buildings and modern architectural wonders alike, gracing private homes, cafés, shops, and hotels with their timeless allure.
