Marble and stone

Marble and stone

Stone – a hard, solid, non-metallic, mineral matter of which rock is made. At Vipp, limestone and marble are a recurring material choice in our furniture designs. The visual expression of both type of stone tells the tale of million of years of natural processing. Veins, fossils, and colour shades are the result of peculiar geological conditions and guarantee that no stones are identical.

Sky grey bush hammered marble

Sky grey bush hammered marble

 

The grey stone has a lot of unique details, like white veins, red marks from iron and miner¬als, as well as lighter or darker “dust/sprinkles”. The stone has shades of grey varying from al¬most white to dark grey. Fossils and other natural marks are often seen which gives the stone a nice play of colours.

Finish: Bush hammered meaning lots of white spots and intended dents in the surface sealed with natural impregnation slightly enhancing the color yet leaving a protected surface. The marble is hammered to break the top layer of the stone, creating a less uni¬form surface with small pockets and gaps, making each tabletop very distinctive.

As a natural stone, each piece of marble is unique with distinguished marks, veins, and spots.

Ocean grey marble

Ocean grey marble

 

The grey stone is a dolomite which is a hard and resistant marble. Vipp Ocean grey is a type of limestone which is compacted over millions of years, leaving a lot of details, like white veins, red marks from iron and minerals, glass veins, and long ‘cracks’ from ancient earthquakes which are filled with resin. The stone has shades of grey varying from light grey to dark grey. Fossils and other natural marks are often seen which gives the stone a nice play.

Finish: Honed (matte) and sealed with natural impregnation slightly enhancing the colour yet leaving a protected and matte surface.

As the Vipp Ocean grey tabletop is made from natural stone, no two pieces are the same. Each marble top has a unique visual expression.
