This volume, aimed at art and design enthusiasts, is the first in-depth publication on the Bisazza Foundation's collection, giving readers a chance to appreciate its mosaic sculptures and artworks.

The book documents the exhibition spaces and collection of artworks on display at the Bisazza Foundation. This is one of the most important luxury brands in the design sector and a leading manufacturer of glass mosaics for interior and exterior decoration.

The volume presents a structured path through images in a lively photographic sequence devoted to the various artists who have worked with Bisazza to create the works on display, which have been rigorously handcrafted with refined mosaic tesserae. This varied collection of works, realized by Tord Boontje, Aldo Cibic, Sandro Chia, Jaime Hayon, Arik Levy, Alessandro Mendini, Fabio Novembre, Mimmo Paladino, John Pawson, Andrée Putman, Ettore Sottsass, Studio Job, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, and Richard Meier, gives a new voice and expression to the skill shown by Bisazza in rising to the challenge of art. Previously reserved for company production, over 80,000 square feet of exhibition space has been recovered and used for display thanks to the conversion project by the architect Carlo Dal Bianco.

The volume closes with the spaces devoted to the photography of architecture, which host works by authoritative figures from the world of photography.
