Girella, one of Salvatori Stone´s special edition pieces designed by Ron Gilad, was awarded “Best Domestic Design 2013” by Wallpaper*.
The curved form seemingly defies logic, begging the question “But how do you bend stone?”.
We are very proud to present our most recent collaboration, featuring Salvatori.
Since 1946, Salvatori has worked closely with architects, designers and builders to provide not only practical support, but also inspiring new ways to work with stone, which often challenge traditional thinking. This approach, combined with an innate solution-finding mentality and an eye for finesse and aesthetics, has led to the Salvatori name becoming synonymous with innovation, design and excellence the world over.
The head office is based in Northern Tuscany, on the coast just a few kilometres from the artists’ haven of Pietrasanta, and less than 30 minutes from the imposing quarries which are home to the famed Carrara marble.
Innovation is entrenched in the DNA of the company, and in fact it scored a world first right back in the earliest days when founder Guido Salvatori invented the Split Face (Spaccatello) finish in 1950.
Working with clients that count among them Armani, Bergdorf Goodman, Louis Vuitton and Boston Consulting Group, Salvatori prides itself in providing much more than mere product. Working alongside with partners right from the beginning of a project, with advice on the stone itself, design, installation and care, covering both practical and aesthetic aspects.
Today the third generation continues the story of innovation with CEO Gabriele Salvatori and his brother Guido at the helm.
We will post pictures from the collaboration soon. Below is a sneak peek.
