Sasha Bikoff Puts a Worldly Spin on Mosaic Tiles for New Ravenna
Interior designer Sasha Bikoff puts a fresh spin on a Eurocentric tile tradition, channeling American history and culture with The New World. The collection for New Ravenna includes Atlas Maior, a mosaic tile interpretation of
a 17th-century map by Dutch cartographer Joan Blaeu. Measuring 44 by 80 inches, the composition is animated with sea serpents, galleons, and dolphins ducking and diving.
A honed finish applied to the 12 hand-nipped natural stones simulates the aging of an antique map.
