Drawing on his fascination with Suiseki, the ancient Japanese art of stone appreciation, Michael Anistassiades envisaged a trio of volcanoes and the natural choice was Basaltina, not only for its obvious geological link but also for the darkness of the material itself.
This is a limited edition series and only thirteen of each of the three designs will be produced.
Since 1946, Salvatori has worked closely with architects, designers and builders to provide not only practical support, but also inspiring new ways to work with stone which often challenge traditional thinking. This approach, combined with an innate solution-finding mentality and an eye for finesse and aesthetics, has led to the Salvatori name becoming synonymous with innovation, design and excellence the world over.
Our head office is based in Northern Tuscany, on the coast just a few kilometres from the artists’ haven of Pietrasanta, and less than 30 minutes from the imposing quarries which are home to the famed Carrara marble.
Innovation is entrenched in the DNA of the company, and in fact we scored a world first right back in our earliest days when founder Guido Salvatori invented the Split Face (Spaccatello) finish in 1950.
Working with clients that count among them Armani, Bergdorf Goodman, Louis Vuitton and Boston Consulting Group, we pride ourselves on providing much more than mere product. We work alongside our partners right from the beginning of a project, with advice on the stone itself, design, installation and care, covering both practical and aesthetic aspects.
Today the third generation continues the story of innovation with CEO Gabriele Salvatori and his brother Guido at the helm.
