“Props” have been featured in The New York Times T Magazine, Dezeen, Domino Magazine, Log, Design Milk, Architect Magazine, and Sight Unseen, and at INTRO/NY, the LA Art Book Fair, the LA Design Festival, and the San Francisco Art Book Fair.
Designed and handmade in Downtown Los Angeles exclusively by Besler & Sons. Each “Prop” is designed to be used in multiple ways; as bookends, doorstops, paperweights, serving platters or simply as accents for your home decor. Featuring a custom blend of colored glass and marble chips which are added to a cement mixture and cast in one of four distinct molds: The Classic Wedge, The Personal Pan Pizza, The Soupcan, and The Snubnose Wedge. After curing overnight, the hardened terrazzo is ground by hand to expose a smooth polished layer of colorful glass, marble and cement.
An update on an age old technique. Terrazzo is a durable composite material with glass and marble chips that has been used in buildings for thousands of years. Because of its strength and coloration terrazzo is typically used as flooring and cast in thin sheets. These objects take an updated view on the process to create a series of monolithic objects for your home or office.
Available in Classic White or Strawberry red matrix with black, white and red aggregate.
