“The interaction between steel and stone allows the latter to seem so light as almost ready to take flight. This is particularly true in our most
recent work, what we called Parabolithic: Sail; the project is part of a series of experiments to investigate complex geometries (such as
double curvature surfaces), applied to natural stone.
As the name itself suggests, our structure resembles an hyperbolic paraboloid
through the use of triangular shaped pieces of Caldia marble, held together by a steel frame. This bond creates an extraordinary architectural solution where stone loses its weight, in a perfect balance of traction and compression
