Van Dender Chocolatier in Schaerbeek
Chocolatier Van Dender – purveyor to the court since 2008 – has had a new, modern production area for several years now. For the new “chocolate factory”, the chocolatier wanted his logo and the text “Van Dender – from bean to chocolate” elaborated in golden mosaic stones.
A nice challenge for Impex: space was limited and the designer insisted that the stones should not be cut. After all, full stones can be grouted normally and that is easier to clean: in a room where food is processed, hygiene is a priority.
Drawing and text translated to mosaic
The Impex design team succeeded in designing the letters in a legible way, which cannot be taken for granted without cutting. In a base of black mosaics, the logo – the head of an Inca – and the text were “drawn” in gold-colored mosaic stones.
The gold-colored stones are made of porcelain, glazed on the top with shiny glaze. Both Aquacolor colors were carefully placed on nets, after which the nets were numbered. The mosaics could thus be attached to the wall in the correct order.
A classic Metro tile was placed around it, so that all attention goes straight to the mosaic.
