Once again, at Stonesize, we say goodbye to the year with a summary of the contents we have published in this large format marble blog during 2021. As always, we take this opportunity to wish a Happy New Year to all our readers, customers and collaborators.
The articles written by Stonesize specialists are distributed in 5 main categories: large format, facades, furniture, backlit and Stonesize technology. Let’s get started!
And since it’s Christmas time, we begin the tour with the backlit block:
In our post “Large-format backlit onyx“, we talked about the extraordinary crystalline quality of onyx, which allows to illuminate structural elements of the building.
The post “Backlit onyx columns” followed the same argument as the previous one but focused on a specific project in which large columns became natural stone luminaires.
And although, in the post “Marble elements for architecture and interior design” not all the examples were backlit marble, we saw exciting pieces such as backlit marble lamps or translucent stone cladding in large format showers.
Another section we are very proud of is the one in which we interview designers and architects who work with us.
We have enjoyed the presence of Pedro Ayora and Ana Salinero, co-founders of INHABIT, an outstanding studio in Marbella with international projection.
We also had the pleasure of chatting with Jorge Rincón, founder of JRW Arquitectura, a renowned specialist in creating contemporary luxury homes in Marbella and Norway.
Another important section is the one dedicated to large format. One of the articles that generated a lot of excitement was when we talked about large format natural stone ceilings. We observed in detail the ceiling of the image, made in Pacific Grey marble and designed by Inhabit.
With the posts “Bookmatch of light marble for large format” and “Kitchen cabinets with marble fronts” also in large format, we discussed how the coatings with large sheets of unfolded marble confer a stunning magnetism to the space.
The technological aspect of Stonesize plays a crucial role because it combines natural stone, size, lightness and resistance.
For this reason, we carried out this comparison between lightweight marble vs conventional marble.
We also addressed the giant sizes with ultra-lightweight stone.
We dedicate a space to textures, explaining how we combine split-faced marble with honeycomb.
And we showed how we avoid breakage in large-format floors thanks to the excellent resistance of Stonesize panels.
We cannot forget the ventilated facades of natural stone, a technique to which Stonesize has contributed a great deal.
The last block is dedicated to natural stone furniture. During this year, we have written about the following:
Lightweight marble with a wrap-around effect capable of creating blocks that look like a whole and not the sum of several ultra-light stone panels.
Machined Stonesize elements thanks to which all fronts can be made of marble.
Floating marble furniture using Stonesize technology to reduce its weight by more than two thirds.
As a finale, we dedicate two articles to the impressive work that the renowned designer Vianny Sanguily carried out, resulting in these beautiful stools in natural stone.
Thank you for reading; we wish you a Happy New Year!
