Natural stone surfaces and furniture for bathrooms, wellness & Spa

Wellness and Spa design requires top-of-the-line features, and long-lasting, luxury finishes.
We focus all our expertise on achieving high-end finishes for the home bathroom, Wellness & Spa projects.
Below we show some of our most compelling lava stone projects.

Home Wellness

The project of a bathroom fully conceived in lava stone enhances the true and pure structural and aesthetic qualities of the stone, revealed through the blending of Gray and Brown shades.

THE BROWN AND GRAY LAVA STONES BATHROOM, RESIDENTIAL PROJECT (JEFF LAMB DESIGN)

The gray lava collection is used for flooring and claddings, where the alternate use of rough and honed lava tiles gives a smooth gray tesselation, while the brown lava has been used for the washbasins and bathtub.

For this home wellness project, the twin washbasins and bathtub were carved from single blocks of lava, machined and hand chiseled.
The smoothness of the shape is brought out by the warm tone of the brown honed lava stone. In the words of designer Jeff Lamb, the project is “a collection of sculptural pieces that are related to the form and function of being human. A textural softness
contrasting against the smoothness of the ordinary”.

SPA Projects

The properties of lava stone and the benefits of using it for a Wellness project are considerable.
First, lava is a natural stone, it is 100% recyclable. Its aesthetic virtues reflect its intense organic quality, its association with nature, as well as the graphics and chromatic movement of volcanic rock. Natural lava surfaces bring a deep, pure natural touch to wellness Spas.

THE PURE NATURAL TOUCH OF GRAY VOLCANIC STONE

The volcanic stone fits well associated with different surfaces and materials, for a unique design effect, as in this exhibition design project:

The outside surface of lava stone is worked upon by hand using a diamond-tipped chisel on the surface, while inner side is perfectly smoothed in order to increase nonporous feature of the surface.
The application of rock face handmade lava stone, historically used outside, is evocative in interior design of bathrooms.
This stone can be dark and uniform in color or dotted with one, two or three different colors.
