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.

THE DETAIL OF THE SHOWER CLADDINGS, WITH ROUGH AND HONED GRAY LAVA TILES AND ALTERNATING RELIEFS

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:

Lava stone table top

Lava stone works well with wall cladding, wooden furniture, glass, metal frames, proving to be a creative and resourceful element in tables design projects.
Kitchen table can be part of a full lava stone kitchen project design consisting of lava stone countertops and sinks; or, on the contrary, lava stone kitchen table can match with different kitchen materials, as in the example:

Glazed lava stone table can be the key element in living room designs as well as for the outdoor scene, such as terraces or home gardens.

The lava stone top is in line with new home living trends: it can be frameless or fit into iron, wood, or rattan frames, with full versatility in playing with the home design project.

DURABILITY

Besides offering enormous potential for creative and custom design, glazing is essential for improving the durability of the countertop surface.
Indeed, due to the refractory nature of lava stone, the glazing and firing process makes the kitchen top resistant to water, chemical agents and to wear.

UPSIZE

A lava stone countertop can measure up to 3 meters, making it a center stage element and lending individuality to the entire kitchen design.

Lava stone’s versatility allows the client to use the stone in perfect harmony with other kitchen equipment.

COUNTERTOP EDGES

We offer a number of different countertop edge profile finishes.
This smallest of changes in detail makes the stone look very different, and can be the starting point for your countertop custom design.
