Palladio and Lithic Design
The 500th anniversary of the birth of Andrea Palladio provided an important and motivating occasion to study a project inspired by the production of the most well renowned “Stone cutter” in the world.
Research, originality and creativity, which have always been the hallmarks of the Chiampo marble workers’ craft, together with the involvement of the designer Raffaello Galiotto, created an extraordinary working relationship. By studying the lines associated with Palladio and reprocessing them, the designer managed to create a collection of works in marble, stone and granite of contemporary design, offering a new demanding challenge to these companies’ technical and productive skills, giving life to a new industrial philosophy. The claddings collection “Pietre Incise Palladio”, which was created for this project, has been successfully integrating Lithos Design offer since 2008.
