When I came across the work of Vaselli, I was in a pretty good stooper of amazement. Their art of stone kitchens and bathrooms goes above and beyond what you typically see in a modern bathroom or kitchen. I don’t know that I could function in an all stone bathroom, only because I love the warm of wood grain. There are a couple of projects here that have incorporated wood and the results are stunning. I also appreciate the angles and curves they are achieving, truly artisan and sculptors.
“The stone tells ancient stories about people and generations. The Earth’s inner silence and its majesty are free to speak. Man reveals the hidden beauty of a Stone by handling, working, making it malleable and shaping it, so to let its soul speak. The work of nature, of water and its hidden motions appear with veins, sudden colour changes, and filled and empty spaces. When a stone speaks, it shows its soul, it tells about the land it was born in, and about the water that chose it. The experience of the Vaselli Company at Rapolano Terme spans over 100 years and is rooted in the knowledge of the travertino stone.”
