The centerpiece was a statue inspired by the mythological figure of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess symbolizing love, beauty, and sexuality. Designed by Natstone’s architect, Diogo Malanho, and a Cube using the latest techniques such as parametric design and technology like waterjet and thin layers of NAP and Marble stone. The result was a magnificent statue that, despite its grandeur, is both lightweight and easy to assemble and disassemble. The statue stood atop a cube created to honor Natstone’s founders, featuring the latest stone application innovation—a translucent marble that magically illuminated the busts of the three founders.
Visitors to the booth were captivated by Aphrodite and marveled at Natstone’s ability to set new trends in the world of stone, whether through innovative finishes or large-scale production with cutting-edge technology. Our booth’s wall illustrations showcased the possibilities of natural stone, from 3D facades to flooring and interiors. Thanks to an interactive diagram designed by Nuno Eusébio, visitors could easily explore our various solutions for projects involving natural stone.
Visitors also had the opportunity to experience the latest trends using QR code scans and augmented reality. They could visualize how Natstone products could be applied in real-time at their chosen location via their mobile devices.
Guided by our sales representatives, who provided personalized assistance, attendees were informed about the characteristics of both national and international stone, as well as new finishes developed by Natstone for architectural and interior projects.
The Portuguese representation at the “A Matter of Stone” pavilion was a resounding success, with many architects, interior designers, and international artists witnessing Natstone’s elevation of Portuguese stone to levels of excellence.
