Why choose Piasentina stone
Piasentina stone, a natural stone from the foothills of the north-east area of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region in the province of Udine, has always fascinated designers and its applications seem to underlie the reassuring promise of eternity for which mankind has worked for thousands of years in its most representative products.
It has adapted to lifestyles and social customs to such an extent that it has become a witness over time, the Piasentina stone is an expression of that close bond with our land and our culture.
Using natural stone is therefore not the same as using any other material, it never remains anonymous, but on the contrary it tells us about the past, which is still alive and which we come from.
In its reappearance it looks different each time, becoming an expression of the duality that sometimes opposes, but more often integrates, “local” to “global dynamics”.
Even when it is cut into tiles, it never becomes a standardised product, but it accounts for the unique mechanisms of genesis and variety of genres that distinguish it, as well as the craftsmanship of most of its methods of processing and laying.
