Picking the best impurities a stone can wear
One stone connects Italy; from counter tops to wash basins, chopping blocks to side units. Marble. Marble is the treasured stone of an Italian house; it’s our daily connection with something glamorous yet functional, beautiful yet having a place. Marble is the chosen material of the artisan. A harking to traditions and natural execution. It is its naturalness that makes it unique. From colouring to density , no one piece is the same making it a material that only experts should touch.
«A depth that man made stone can’t capture»
It’s why when we visit Luca in Chiampo, we don’t expect champagne but what we get is a treasure trove of delights; our Christmas come early and our birthdays uniformly rolled into one. Theirs is a laboratory, yet still a stone masters home. They select slates that capture how a mountain has evolved over time. A colour scheme giving a depth that man made stone can’t capture, one that we can build into our other experiences. Each vein that runs through the stone is a story; like the life lines that run over the palm of your hands, marble that is masoned to your experience represents your story. Our duty at Arketipo is to make your story shine through, consistency not only in colour, but of storyline in your furniture as well.
