Lithos Opus: Ready, Steady, Stone.
Date: March 3, 2014
An explosion of colour, an exciting modern-day expression of industrial stone design applied to the ancient art of inlay work.
Lithos Design opens up to colour with OPUS Collection, a new collection that will be previewed at the International Bathroom Exhibition 2014 – Milan, from April 8th to April 13th, hall 24, booth #C11.
The numbers of OPUS Collection: 25 types of marble, 5 patterns, 12 colour ranges, material wastage reduced close to zero: industrial design inlay work comes into the world.
The designs, the nuances and the productive approach of this new collection literally break down the classical idea of marble inlay work and its use in the field of decoration for floors and claddings by driving innovation into hitherto unexplored realms.
The collection makes its début with a variety of hues, from the brightest to the softest, in a series of modular, ready-for-use ensembles that do not forgo the preciousness of antique inlay work yet at the same time speak to the onlooker in a new language, linked to an exceptional mark of design.
Stonework design explores new avenues.
With this collection Lithos Design has switched its production focus from a sculptural approach to one which is more pictorial. In addition to the search for three-dimensional results which until now has been typical of the way in which the brand has evolved, there is now a desire to design with colours, with shadows and chiaroscuro effects, and with an emphasis on the primordial hue of natural stone as well as on its various shapes.
The creation of this collection has necessitated specific research into the structures, the colours and the compositions of stone materials from the perspective of the production runs which are typical of industrial design, in addition to research into the whereabouts, the quality and the ease of working with marble originating from all around the world.
