For Lithos Design marble is a passion: it is a material that is natural, ancient, alive, one which has lasted for millennia without growing old, and today, thanks to the industrial stone design for which Lithos Design is one of the foremost and most passionate advocates, it can satisfy modern-day production and project requirements.
Marble from Lithos Design, used to construct wall claddings, stand-alone wall panels and floors, retains the charm of its age-old traditions and yet at the same time it can represent an extraordinarily innovative and original decorative item and thus become a highly useful instrument for architects and interior designers, both for domestic environments and for public spaces.
Among the most “architectural” collections from Lithos Design are the Muri di Pietra and Le Pietre Incise, which have been applied in two refurbishment projects which, although they are extremely diverse in terms of style and purpose, have a specific requirement in common: the desire to create a strong link between the traditional and the modern. One case is the refurbishment of a private villa in Trapani and the other is the restyling of the Marciana Restaurant in Venice.
The architectural studio Driusso Associati handled the restyling of the Marciana Restaurant in Venice. In this case too the project aimed to bring out the best of the region’s traditions while still respecting the cosmopolitan patrons who frequent the premises. Natural materials such as stone and wood, designer items in Murano glass, mosaics, colour schemes based on sand, ochre and browns, all create a perfect harmony between contemporary design and craft-based taste.
A long wall is clad in marble using the Fondo model by Lithos Design, whose pattern is inspired by the patterns created by the continuing ebb and flow of waves on the sandy ocean floor. For the “now you see it, now you don’t” separation between two different zones the choice was made to use a stand-alone Traccia wall panel, which echoes the typical shapes of the Venetian style yet re-defines them in a totally new language.
