Introducing this stone to the contemporary design world is a way for us to convey its endless and intimate qualities. A dense story for this unique material. Early used as a window or as a stained glass, used as a decoration or carved like a sculpture, alabaster has been seen as a creator of calm and serenity.
A specific crystallisation of the gypsum allowed the birth of this rare and unique translucent stone which is alabaster. Preserved underground, the stone comes out of obscurity, leaving to sculptors the opportunity of revealing its secrets and splendours, modulations and transparencies.
A RIGOROUS SELECTION
White translucent alabaster we use for our creations is rare. Moreover, it offers plenty of patterns possibilities – fluid or crystallised, white or ochre – and many transparency levels. Our requirements and experience allow us to compose harmonious sets.
ALABASTER RICHNESS AND ET SUPPLENESS
Alabaster is wonderfully tender, easily shapeable, and it is pretty simple to cut it or to carve it.
However, this is not a child’s play as it is also very fragile: this stone is extremely breakable and it is very simple to scratch it.
Thus, the different techniques of protection we developed prove our uniqueness.
Richness and constraints: a true invitation to creation.
THE STONE MAGNIFIED BY THE BACKLIGHT
The incorporated light highlights the material and reveals its patterns density: cloudy, fluid or crystallised. Our work consists in ensuring light uniformity and richness in order to enliven these patterns.
Immediately visible and seductive, these effects will be contemplated inexhaustibly. Lose yourself to this bewitchment!
