Big, beautiful and bespoke

Anyone who has worked with me knows that I have a penchant for stone, bricks, glass, in fact most hard, natural materials and the beautiful tiles and stone available from Artedomus are awe-inspiring. I can talk for hours about the wonders of marble or granite, however, on my trip to Sydney for Saturday in Design I was (almost) speechless when I spied a wonderful piece of furniture that takes natural stone to a whole new level.

Sitting at the entrance of the Corporate Culture Chippendale showroom was a stunning new reception desk made of, yes you guessed it, stone. Designed by the very talented Australian designer Adam Goodrum the desk is made from Bedonia natural stone from Artedomus and is an elegant signature piece for the high-end furniture retailer. Artedomus’s artisan stonemasons worked on the desk for more than one hundred hours and much of this time was spent on site, hand-shaping the complex multi-axis joint at each vertical corner. The three sides of the desk are made from 30mm thick stone positioned to tilt inwards and the finished product is both beautiful and elegant in it's simplicity. All credit must go to Artedomus’s talented stone masons for achieving a flawless result.

Corporate Culture is the destination to shop for architects, designers and anyone who loves beautiful furniture and Goodrum’s reception desk aligns perfectly with the many iconic furniture pieces on show. Artedomus also supplied handcrafted tiles from Inax, Japan and Graniti Fiandre, Italy for specific areas of the showroom.

It’s good to see two leading companies working together to enhance each others products especially when the results are as pleasing as this.
