/ Our Textures, For Reaching Different Looks and Benefits of Usages
Lava Stone is a living, natural material, with a distinctive gray color (in its purest form) which presents an array of different shades from silver to brown.
The properties of volcanic stone
The properties of lava stone are considerable.
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 chromatic movement of volcanic rock.
When analyzing its physical properties, the amazing strength of lava stone becomes immediately clear, both in relation to its breaking load and its degree of frost resistance.
Not to be discredited is its size and shape: lava stone pieces offer wide freedom of use for any design projects.
Lava stone slabs can be cut perfectly to a minimum thickness of 1 cm and a maximum length of about 300 cm.
The starting point of production is the quarry: it is here we pick lava stone blocks most appropriate for the project.
How we work the stone
Once the stone has reached our workshop, it is transformed to the size required by the client.
Special finishes can be applied during this process, which reveal different shades from gray to brown, all whilst preserving the natural characteristics of the stone. This adds texture and character to the final project.
Our stone design production is based on both hand chiseling and modern carving techniques.
The possibility to cut stone blocks in sizes of up to 3 meters makes lava rock a stunning design element for creating not only washbasins and bathtubs from monolithic blocks, but also bar counters, kitchen counter tops and islands.
Our workshops, located at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, employ stone artisans whose skills have been handed down over centuries, through in traditions that live on in southern Italy.
Special finishes can be applied on the bare surface, which reveal different shades from gray to brown, all whilst preserving the natural characteristics of the stone. This adds texture and character to the final project.
