Reduce, Reuse and Re-create
Consisting of skillfully selected combinations of patterns, color and textures, AZU is not only innovative, but also one of the industry’s most environmental responsible. The multiple- height texture is a result of discarded end-cuts from the production of marble slabs. This blend has achieved a unique and modern look.
Human Right & Equal Opportunity
AZU was founded by partnering and collaborating with an established 30 year old quarry and factory. While already having very respectable working conditions and 35- hour work weeks, AZU has opened up opportunities for women in Indonesia. Previously banned from working in this male-dominated trade- the AZU project has led to the first-ever female division in the factory that now exclusively provides the unique hand-placed blending that makes each sheet of AZU one-of-a-kind. The ladies that work in teams of 12 have an excellent eye for producing exceptional “random-appearing” marble blends.
