Since its foundation, Natstone has cared for the notoriety of Portuguese natural stone and its immense potential, namely, in its transformation and application in various styles or branches of design and architecture. We often have a reflection on how such a massive, colossal and primitive material can become something so fragile, sensitive and, consequently, interesting. Limestone is made of these particularities. None is the same suitable composition, whether it is a material with more or less grain, fossils and, in certain cases, veins and crystals. And this is extraordinary.
A project execution consists of several steps. In a first phase, we have the 3D mock-up of the structure, subdivided into 180 unique pieces and application of textures to scale. Each of these parts will be machined to measure using CNC milling machines, which are then forwarded to the manual finishing section. Of these manual finishes we highlight the brushed, flamed, polished, honed and sanded.
It was with this basis of inspiration that we thought of a concept that would show the human being what natural stone really is, and how its irregularity becomes such a peculiar and interesting art form. Basically, we studied a hypothesis to show a greater variety of natural limestone, of different tones, with irregular grain and veins and all possible finishes.
