The natural stone of Lithos Design for the bedroom
Lithos Design creates unique, elegant claddings in natural stone and marble to give character to all spaces, including the sleeping area, where the properties of stone create a welcoming, salubrious and safe environment.
Natural stone helps fulfil all the requirements for the design of the sleeping area both from a thermal and acoustic point of view and in terms of safety, while facilitating maintenance in the long term.
Lithos Design claddings are entirely made of natural stone and marble that have low maintenance requirements and preserve their beauty over time.
Another aspect to be considered in this context is health and safety; natural stones are not flammable, are not affected by electrostatic charge and do not promote the development of micro-organisms, bacteria and mould.
Lithos Design claddings have attractive sound-absorbing properties due to the intrinsic porous characteristics of the materials and the special process applied, offering a large surface area of contact with incident waves, thus promoting the dissipation of a larger quantity of sound energy, guaranteeing high acoustic quality, perfect for the sleeping area.
With good thermal properties, stone cladding contributes to the energy efficiency of a space as it helps to optimise the amount of energy used for heating and cooling.
The Le Pietre Incise collection
Geometries in motion, glamorous and changing textures, games of light and optical effects that design space.
The models of the first iconic collection by Lithos Design, Le Pietre Incise, is supplemented with four new models that boost the bewitching enchantment of these claddings, capable of exploring the infinite potential of stone, skilfully interpreted with different décors to the limits of the most sophisticated technological potential and, in some cases, associated with light which becomes an integral part of the wall.
The models of the collection are forged on modular stone slabs which are machined flat through decorative expressions which add the skill of the processing technique to the company's profound knowledge of materials and of the impact of light on machined stone.
For some models are available the Curve Luce and Coni Luce complements, curved cone-shaped stone slabs which lend a three-dimensional motion effect and which house light sources within them.
Horizontal lines, small engraved furrows, such as brushstrokes, are following one another on stone. A contemporary aesthetic code for a cladding strongly emphasizing both the material and the decoration.
Le Pietre Incise modules 60/120cmX60cmX 2cm
Curve Luce and Coni Luce modules 60cmX60cmX14cm
Materials bianco cotone - bianco narciso - bianco pastello - botticino vaniglia - beige canapa - travertino latino - ocra sabbia - giallo dorato - silva oro - carrara ghiaccio - grigio cenere - gris st pierre - grigio tundra - pierre bleu
Gemma is a refined cladding inspired to the diamond cut shape. The repetitiveness of this form engraved on the material creates games of fascinating chiaroscuros exalting the beauty of natural stone.

As a fabric “stolen” from haute couture, Seta is an amazing cladding recalling the lightness of the drapes in silk warp. Harmonic curves, chasing each other in perfect balance between form and matter and thus drawing space.
Seta is available also in Curve Luce version

The Opus collection
The designs, the nuances and the productive approach of this collection literally break down the classical idea of marble inlay work and its use in the field of decoration for floors and claddings by driving innovation into hitherto unexplored realms. The collection makes its début with a variety of hues, in a series of ready-for-use ensembles that do not forgo the preciousness of antique inlay work yet at the same time speak to the onlooker in a new language, linked to an exceptional mark of design.
Broken down shapes focusing on the contrast between delicate shades of colour and bolder colourful brush-strokes, determined by wise and specific choices of stone materials. An echo of outlines, an infinite number of figures which follow one another in the perfect dose of colour.
Tangram is realised through an innovative production technique devised to ensure further and more considerable economies of scale and speedier deliveries.
Size: 60cm X 60cm X 1,8 cm
Materials: Marble compositions declined in 16 different colour palettes: Aloe, Ginger, Caffè, Sandalo, Artico, Smoking, Cappuccino, Zafferano, Memphis, Chantilly, Masala, Anice, Chaplin, Country, Club, Patchwork.
The Drappi di Pietra collection
Drappi di Pietra is an avant-garde design project because it makes it possible to create shapes similar to the natural undulations of fabrics from a block of marble, while minimising processing waste. The machine reads and translates the drapery, each cut producing the negative of a piece and the positive of the next: the result is a surprising cladding, a sequence of folds, waves and ripples with a great styling lightness and fluidity.
Tulle is a modular stone cladding which affords the styling lightness and plasticity of tulle fabric. The perfection of the folds, the light embossing and the games of chiaroscuro give the cladding an aura of gauzy lightness.
An avant-garde design project that makes it possible to create shapes similar to the folds of fabrics, while minimising the processing waste.
Size 60cm X h 60cm X thickness 9cm
Materials carrara ghiaccio, travertino etrusco, breccia oniciata, rosa dolomiti, grigio carnico
