From terrazzo furniture and a brand-new sneaker collab to “embroidered” cakes and fun ice blocks, these are VISI’s top picks of the week.
1. Apt X Huguet’s Terrazzo Furniture
Architecture studio Apt collaborated with tile manufacturer Huguet to create a terrazzo bench. The collaboration saw the combination of three new terrazzo types to create a bench, that if reproduced, would be entirely unique, made up of individual fragments that would otherwise have been discarded.
