During Stone Week 2016 a large number of new materials were being presented in the impressive Stone Gallery of Antolini in Verona, Italy. Some of these materials I saw already at the natural stone fair of Verona in September 2015 but it is always nice to see all the latest materials nicely presented together. Antolini is based on the number of various materials on stock the biggest natural stone supplier in the world. They also have the best natural stone showrooms and when you visit them you get a clear understanding of the infinite possibilities and beauty of natural stone. I personally regret that the Stone Gallery is lately only accessible when accompanied by a sales person. It is one of the best places to get inspired for a new project or to look for a certain color or structure in a material and I rather do that by myself or just with my client. For this article I selected the following materials to bring under your attention:
The Patagonia (above) is through its translucent structure and its durability very suitable for a backlit bar. The Advan Fantasy VC (right) is a very classy marble and suitable for various interior applications. Gris de Roi and Nero Antico (see the photo slider underneath) are marbles with an exclusive appeal of a Port Laurent and will surely find their way to the luxury interiors. They are also spectacular used in book match. The Atlantic Grey is a type of natural stone that due to its characteristics belongs to the granites but it has a structure of a marble. Therefore very suitable as a kitchen top for people who like to have a durable material with a marble look. The Grisbrown Quartzite stands out by its simplicity and uniform structure and would look good in a very modern interior. The flamboyant Lavender VC does indeed reminiscent of a burgeoning field of lavender.
