Drappi di Pietra selected for the International Design & Architecture Awards 2013


The Drappi di Pietra collection, created in 2012 from the design of Raffaello Galiotto, is composed by five models which names evoke fabrics selected for their characteristics of lightness and sinuosity: tulle, organza, chiffon, ottoman and foulard. The perfect folds created by the sophisticated processing and the painstaking study of the reflective properties of stone give these modular claddings an original aura of gauzy lghtness.


Drappi di Pietra by Lithos Design is an avant-garde design project because it makes it possible to create shapes similar to the natural undulations of fabrics from a block of marble, while minimising processing waste. The machine reads and translates the drapery, each cut producing the negative of a piece and the positive of the next: the result is a surprising cladding, a sequence of folds, waves and ripples with a great styling lightness and fluidity.


The stone claddings (carrara ghiaccio, beige canapa and pietra serena) take on unprecedented styling accuracy and technical proportions with a delicacy of lines, three-dimensional effects and a novel lightness.


A special, in-depth study was dedicated also to the application system of the modules, in 60×60 cm format for some models and in 120×60 cm for others, to make it as simple as possible despite the ingenious composition of these cladding models; in addition, this method also enhances their already excellent thermal insulation properties.


The excellence of the Drappi di Pietra project is the new climax of a production story that enhances the expressive abilities of stone materials re-interpreted by Lithos Design, which reformulates their styling and formal appeal with a touch of the contemporary, with unrivalled sensitivity and skill.
