‘CRACKED EARTH’ Concrete Floor Mosaic

Designed by Hugo Bugg and Edward Forster for KAZA Concrete, the ’Cracked Earth’ concrete floor tile has won the FX International Interior Design Award 2014. The bespoke tile made it’s debut at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014 in the RBC Waterscape Garden which was awarded a gold medal.

Hugo Bugg designed the Waterscape Garden, one of 16 show gardens for RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014, highlighting global water issues by mimicking nature’s way of slowing down water. As feature of the garden Bugg & Forster designed a seamless cracked earth hard floor to establish the main theme. Drawing inspiration from the parched effects caused by extreme global weather, the design is layered with naturally-occurring geometric patterns.

KAZA Concrete, closely working together with Bugg, designed the technical background and manufactured the seamless cracked earth motive in form of refined and reinforced concrete mosaic tiles.
