Lithic Fabric, surface that can be curved in any direction.
PROJECT AND DESIGN: Prof. Arch. Giuseppe Fallacara – POLYTECHNIC OF BARI
MATERIAL: Marble of Apricena ‘Serpeggiante’
RETAILER: Stilmarmo – Apricena (FG)
Lithic Fabric is a stone or marble surface divided into tiles like a mosaic mutually linked by a continuous steel cable according to a triangular texture positioned inside the tiles. This creates a stone-based material capable of being able to bend and bend in all directions. The idea is to be able to ‘cover’ any building with a complex shape with marble (like ivy). The marble tiles become leaves to protect the large glazed spaces of the buildings from the sun. The size of the surface can be infinitely large as it is made up of modular elements.
