A large format stereotomy states all benefits of natural stone.

Two kinds of white marble with slightly greyish seams and three kinds of finishing to them. Polished, brush hammered and sandblasted, they supply altogether a range of ten different textures in a space full with contrasts even within its continuity.

Changes of colour in natural light reflect on their surfaces during day-time. Artificial light is introduced into a recess of the stone, allowing for backlighting. A night-time illumination rich in warm, almost golden tones.
