The simplicity and elegance of this unique 1,500-square-foot installation of functional art speaks for itself. The use of micro-quartzite as aggregate reinforces the design and keeps the eye focused on the original chain-link pattern, staid but dynamic, contemporary yet classic in its choice of colors. Water-jet technology was used to form the black elements of the interwoven geometrical shapes, while the white sections were poured-in-place. Water-jet technology allows for the creation of a monolithic floor with highly intricate patterns without expansion joints or metal strips for separating colors.
