Margraf is constantly carrying out research into the processing and presentation of stone materials, as it strives to create highly exclusive designer items and products. With this in mind, the Vicenza-based company has embarked on a new partnership with our office. The stand aims to bring out the best of marble and stone as age-old construction materials. Thanks to the focus on finishes, hues and full and empty spaces in the design, they come together to form a colourful, breathtaking stone garden.
The display has been deliberately created to enable people to both see and walk through it. Combining indoor and outdoor features, it has spaces that are outlined by panels, platforms, steps and tubs, which are complemented by the colours and tactile qualities of the marble.Careful consideration of the balance between the colours and the textures helps to highlight the wonders of the marble from Margraf’s quarries, such as Arancio di Selva and Fior di Pesco Carnico. The company has the only existing quarry in the world for the latter. A number of different finishes and surface processing techniques reveals the versatility of the materials and the variety of veins and colours produced by nature.
The edge of the space is traced out lengthwise by two parallel panels with a service area between them. Outside are platforms and standing surfaces on a range of levels. The long walls provide the scope for a playful blend of textures and patterns that showcase the fine properties of the marble thanks to Margraf’s cutting-edge processing techniques and more than 100 years of experience.
