This is the message that has always been broadcast by PNA – Pietra Naturale Autentica, the network that brings together many brands of reference of the technical-marble value chain in Italy. Choosing marble means selecting a unique, authentic material that brings out territorial potential, thanks to its intrinsic qualities that bring added value to any project.
Raffaello Galiotto manages to translate voluptuous draped fabric into marble with Chiffon, created for Lithos Design. Chiffon is part of a wider collection, Drappi di Pietra, which also includes Tulle and Foulard, suggesting the fluid movements of fabrics, with a production concept that minimizes scrap. The technology interprets and translates the draping encoded in the software, where each cut produces the negative of one piece and the positive of the next.
Also on the theme of lightness, Salvatori has called on the designer Elisa Ossino to create Plissé, which means ‘pleated’ in French. This is a finish that stands out for its clean lines that play with the light to generate a sense of continuity.
Based on research conducted by Antolini, the SAFE finish is part of the design of the Textures+ Collection, ready to meet the needs of architects and interior designers in search of exclusive patterns and textures. Safe guarantees skidproof performance, while at the same time conserving the amazing beauty of natural stone. The secret lies in the subtle surface treatment that enhances the texture of the stone, making it safe to use and splendid to the gaze. Without altering the intrinsic characteristics of the material, the slender regular ripples of this finish prevent the formation of a continuous slippery surface.
The Margraf collection of bathtubs, shower trays and washstands, with various forms and sizes, transform the bathroom in the home or the wellness area of a hotel into a highly personalized setting, in full contact with nature. Like true works of art, the coverings, washstands, tubs and shower platforms in Margraf marble go perfectly with porcelain bath fixtures and provide architects with multiple decorative solutions.
The noble, timeless essence of Carrara marble is reinterpreted in an innovative way through the contemporary language of design in indoor and outdoor collections created to enhance exclusive villas, hotels and superyachts. The Cubic collection by Franchi Umberto Marmi, with its minimal, essential lines, offers furnishings like sofas, armchairs and cots, impressive pieces that can be customized, where noble Carrara marble becomes a design object, paired with fine fabrics and precious finishes.
