Lundhs Real Stone – natural stone from Norway
Bringing surfaces to life, Lundhs Real Stone materials combine exceptional practical properties with unique aesthetics to create distinctive visual statements. Crafted by nature millions of years ago, each piece of stone is a one-off and reflects the various shapes, colours and formations of Norway’s natural landscape. Norwegian Presence 2021 showcases Lundhs Real Stone through a new tile collection and four designer collaborations. Designed by Dybwad&Wyller, Stick is a coffee table with a light aluminium frame and a Lundhs Antique and a Lundhs Emerald top. Aluminium & Stone, by Ali Gallefoss, is an experimental piece that fuses aluminium with surplus stone from Lundhs quarry. NOK is an oak kitchen module by carpentry workshop Hamran with Lundhs Emerald worktops. The 2021 event also offers an exclusive preview of prototypes of Philipp von Hase’s new wooden Circus and Cabaret tables with an integrated Lundhs Antique plate in the centre.
