Antolini’s Cristallo Vitrum, Amazonite and Patagonia Vitrum Take Center Stage at Marmomac
Fifty-one thousand visitors from 53 countries are the numbers from the 2023 edition of Marmomac, the international Marble and Natural Stone Fair of Verona, where Antolini played a leading role.
Immediately upon entering the fair, visitors were greeted by Antolini’s gleaming booth, a new successful project by designer Alessandro La Spada. The dominant concept of the project has been the interpretation of the booth as a museum where the most valuable natural stones were displayed.
Walking through the Infinitum Museum visitors have had the chance to get a close look and to touch natural stones part of the Exclusive Collection – including Cristallo Vitrum, Patagonia Vitrum and Amazonite – the TEXTURES+ Collection, and, last but not least, the LadyA jewelry line.
Emphasis has been given to Crystals: Cristallo Vitrum, part of the Natural Quartz family, has been appointed by Antolini as main character both for the backlit entrance counter, for the seating designs and part of the exhibition. Patagonia Vitrum, another Natural Quartz, has been installed here as a scenic wall behind the counter, clear evidence of how the material represents the ideal solution for composing stunning walls.
Another stand setting spotlighted Amazonite, part of the Exclusive Collection by Antolini, and defined by a wide range of green and turquoise shades. Alessandro La Spada chose this beautiful stone for an elegant and welcoming meeting area, proposing different uses of the same material: in fact, Amazonite was used here both as a wall covering and as a tabletop.
Visitors also got a close look at the TEXTURES+ Collection, proof of Antolini’s ability to combine the power of nature with the progress of technological innovation. It consists of 51 different proposals for processing the surface of natural stone, each designed to meet functional and stylistic demands. Exhibited for the first time as part of a trade show, Antolini showcased the Silver Stream natural stone in Rock finish, underlining the scenic rendering of the texture.
Alberto Antolini, CEO of the company, stated his satisfaction regarding this edition of the fair: “For us, always proposing something new and innovative is fundamental, and fortunately we can count on a material with infinite potential. On one hand, to highlight the trend of crystals, which are increasingly elegant and sophisticated. At the recent Marmomac, the public had the opportunity to experience firsthand Cristallo Vitrum from the Exclusive Collection, a marvel of Mother Nature that restores the perception of a perennial layer of ice thanks to its transparency and translucency; Patagonia Vitrum, natural quartz enriched by the incursion of different types of natural minerals; and Amazonite, quartzite with enchanting turquoise tones that stand out with dramatic intensity on the green background. Then there are the new textures that add value by allowing further customization of the design.”
