The Stone House project is all about up-cycling stone waste by disclosing its beauty and considering different applications. Stefan Scholten and his team explored centuries-old techniques in the industry, known as Terrazzo, Palladiana, Mosaico and Marmorino during a collaboration with Morseletto, which inspired them to use stone waste in a unique and very aesthetic way. Saw residues, broken pieces, chunks and even marble grit are literally used to design and produce tailor made furniture, walls and even a stone carpet.
Collaboration is key in this project where knowledge and heritage are central. Stefan Scholten, with the support of Stone Made Italy, selected beautiful stones produced by quarries and companies which represent an excellence in the industry and have been making efforts during the years to enhance the value of their materials.
