Lapicida’s new 5000 sq foot London showroom in the King’s Road brings together the company’s traditional stone working skills and leading-edge technology. There are antique floors in marble, limestone and terracotta reclaimed from ancient buildings, but also examples of Lapicida‘s high-tech manufacturing capabilities: from 3D objects carved by the most advanced CNC machines in the world to vast walls of book matched and vein cut marbles. Water jet and laser cutting techniques allow remarkable new textural finishes on stone. Metals including silver, nickel and brass can be nano-bonded to textured stone tiles and architectural elements.
The new flagship showroom is a total environment in stone: on walls, on floors, on ceilings; as cladding, as architectural elements and as one-off panels.
This incredible 3-D bamboo wall cladding is carved from solid sandstone.
£12,000 per sq m.
The ancient art of Pietra Dura, using pieces of coloured and semi-precious stone to create highly realistic, almost 3D designs, is still alive today.
