Raw represents the ruggedness of hewn wood, translated into stone to generate a nuanced play of light and shadow. The production process for Raw tiles is designed to preserve the natural aesthetic qualities of the stone and so the tiles are not necessarily perfectly identical, this non-uniformity being intrinsic to the texture and to the nature of the stone itself.
"I worked with Gabriele Salvatori on this surface treatment for marble, to increase and extend the rough cut of pieces of stone. What we got was a series of stones cut like pieces of wood, transforming the precise, mechanical cut into a rough cut, creating an 'engraved' eﬀect on the surface of the marble. We revolutionised the technological element, turning it into a hand-crafted process, and the result was an even surface, which might, for example, be laid tongue and groove, like parquet.” Piero Lissoni
