Lime Rock is the perfect blend of natural inspiration and industrial technology. Its essence gives back the whole taste of limestone, a sedimentary rock with a strong and decisive character, which is always slightly different with every single and unrepeatable splitting of the stone. The result is a new material with dynamic energy: a force that radiates from the structure to the surface, where it expresses all the complexity of movement and layering and then emerges in slender, irregular veins that reflect the light.
Available in full thickness porcelain stoneware in 4 colours and in the new rectangular 75x150 cm format, suitable for laying floors and full surfaces on wall coverings; the range is completed by the 75x75 cm and 37.5x75 cm formats, herringbone mosaics and the 37.5x75 cm external finishing to ensure continuity between inside and outside.
Lime-Rock, the taste that did not exist in contemporary designs, is the result of an intense "shake" of research between graphics and structure as well as between industry and natural stone.
The innovative character of the collection is underscored by skirt, which contextualizes its origin: stone, stone. It is the first project to interpret a stone in which what you see is not what it is: the surface appears angular, but in reality it is soft; it seems firm, but it is not; it does not seem to reflect, but when you walk on it everything changes.
Inspired by the stone, X-Rock reinterprets it in an unconventional way. Download the catalogue of the collection. Let the collection inspire you.
What is literature for rockers? How do books contribute to the promotion of a musician's imagination? The Rock Lit offers some answers and introduces themes, inspirations and artists that we loved and still love. A reflection on how imaginaries, landscapes and themes that have emerged from the invention of authors such as William S. Burroughs, Albert Camus, Flannery O'Connor and many others have inspired and continue to inspire bands and songwriters: an intense journey accompanied by notes and books.
The streets of rock music and literature have crossed countless times, both explicitly and underground and indirectly. Dylan stroked on the path of beats literature until he won the Nobel Prize. The writing technique of William S. Burroughs - the editing - was influenced by Patti Smith, Michael Stipe of R.E.M. and Kurt Cobain.
But also a journey into South Gothic fiction, which is of fundamental importance for artists like Sparklorse or Nick Cave, and the role of Alice, the character created by Lewis Carroll, in the songs of the Beatles and psychedelic rock. This book is a journey along streets with intersections, a small encyclopedic and very imaginative path that collects traces of both poles - the literary and the musical - in a game of continuous references.
