Ardesia has an unmistakeably elegant, heavy personality of metamorphic slate and sedimentary rock with a palpable texture.
Perfect balance and rhythm of delicacy and strength. Here you see it in different variations and colours, altering the general perception of form and space.
"The Arctic has a call that is compelling. The distant mountains make one want to
go on and on over the next ridge and over the one beyond.
The call is that of a wilderness known only to a few..." (William O. Douglass)
About the NATURAL collection
John Ruskin, the great English critic of the Victorian era, stated that 'Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty. If only we have the eyes to see them'. This is the essence of our Natural collection: to observe without judgement. Each day, we open our eyes to see the exquisite beauty of creative nature. From the inscription of leaves onto wet soil (Foliage), to the language bursting from within (Landscape), we are continuously inspired by aesthetic communication in nature.
.For example, our Landscape finish depicts the crust of the Earth, its subtle and semi-regular ripple pattern, as if it negates the perspective. One could pose the question: is it a close up or an aerial view of a vast earthly landscape? On the other hand, Dolomite, with its straight vertical lines, invites us deep inside the Italian forest to follow the ascending pattern of trees and nearby mountains. Conversely, the splattering bubbles revealed in our Pietra Serena finish simulates liquid metal in a natural setting.
