We have travelled, photographed and studied walls from the past in search of the secret of that emotional echo that still fascinates us to this every day...... and that we have discovered to be the value of time.
Here is where our idea of beauty transpires
Observing nature teaches us to detach from the idea of absolute perfection, in order to achieve authentic, spontaneous creativity, full of originality.
We are the product of places where stone recounts the stories of toil and pure art, of generations who have built and inhabited stunning architectural creations that combine form and function.
This was our starting point, gathering photographs and analysing the stone used to construct ancient, rustic and traditional dwellings. We then moved on to exploring very diverse regions and meeting the people with considerable experience who are the custodians of this ancient wisdom.
The stone walls inspiring our research were eroded by natural agents, shaped by the work of humankind, weathered by the centuries they have witnessed, express the wonder of instinctive creations that are spontaneous yet sage, and are rich with originality and ingenuity.
A long journey in search of natural beauty, the value of time, and our connection to Earth through the charms of texture, in order to reproduce these aspects in manufactured stone veneer coverings in a tangible, concrete manner.
A new material connected to the passage of time, to transformation into every and any thing, and to that idea of imperfection which is inherent in nature, such as the furrowed lines on a mature face that inevitably covers the features we use and love most.
PROUDLY MANUFACTURED STONE
There is nothing more complex than a material sculpted by nature.
It takes years of technological development to replicate the essence of the simple action
of the air or water, an incomparable feature of the passing of time.
A passion for stone has driven us for 25 years in the reproduction of an innovative material, which is capable of expressing the same sensations as its original predecessor, but has reached a level of maturity and exceptional quality that exceeds it in terms of technology and versatility of use. Indeed it is very much thanks to the realistic effect of ecological manufactured stone veneer Geopietra® that we can create numerous authentic stone features in the wide range of shades that nature offers. Each stone is coloured exclusively by hand and it is only by doing so that the hues and features of time can be reproduced, which is impossible even to achieve with a natural cut, turning it into a unique, craft material.
The innovative, inquisitive and creative spirit that underpins Geopietra® research enables us to continually develop the technical performance and aesthetic appeal of murogeopietra® made with ecological manufactured stone veneer.
IMPRINTS OF THE PAST IN THE FEATURES OF TIME
Stone is testimony to our link to places.
By observing ancient walls, studying construction techniques in different places and seeking out the best stone, we have selected thousands of shapes and colours. With shades typical of rust, leaching and moss, we have reproduced every natural, emotion-filled hue, and restored that special quality that only ancient materials possess in our ecological manufactured stone veneer. In a professional installation, stone gives walls rustic sophistication, enduring charm, and new stimulus for contemporary architecture. Deep-seated emotions are rediscovered in looking to the living requirements of the future, through murogeopietra®.
