What are the best bar top ideas for unique commercial bar tops? Discover the benefits of Sensitile Terrazzo for DIY bar design.
LOOKING FOR UPSCALE BAR TOP IDEAS?
I’ve worked with many great products in commercial bar design. Some very unique bar top ideas, made from terrazzo concrete, is offered by Sensitile Systems.
A PASSIVE, LIGHT-REACTIVE PRODUCT
The concept behind these products is rooted in light interaction:
- The material senses changes in light directly above its surface.
- Small optical resin chips (“points”) at the surface, are embedded into the terrazzo.
- A fiber optic network that interconnects the chips below the surface.
- Hand movement and changing light colors above the surface creates interaction between adjacent chips.
- The chips twinkle above the product’s surface.
In summary, Sensitile Terrazzo is not electronic in any way. The surface particles are purely light-reactive.
This is a very nice, upscale product that requires no maintenance. Sensitile Terrazzo is a passive, light-reactive slab of concrete that requires no special wiring or sensors.
TERRAZZO LUMINA FOR BACKLIT BAR TOPS
For an exceptional backlit bar top, consider “Terrazzo Lumina:
- Designed to enable light to pass through it.
- Install an LED light source along a turned-down edge and light will travel across the panel (see photo at top).
- Custom radius (see photo below).
- Chips can be arranged in various shapes, sizes and patterns.
BAR DESIGN TIP
Sensitile Terrazzo and Sensitile Lumina can also be used for bar fronts.
HOW MUCH DOES SENSITILE TERRAZZO COST?
In 2022, Sensitile Terrazzo costs US$225 per square foot and Terrazzo Lumina costs US$315. These prices compare favorably to other products in the same category, such as stainless steel and hammered copper.
