Lithos Design is among the companies that the architects’ studio MAS has selected for the refurbishment and renovation project for the exteriors of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Bahrain.

The aim of the refurbishment was to extend the food & beverage area with an ensuing greater recreational offering for guests in the outdoor area, spanning 9,000 m2. To achieve the objective set by the customer, MAS architecture worked on the connection between the central part of the hotel and the beach, removing all physical obstacles and using architectural elements whose finishes were able to enhance the value of the atmosphere and the soft and relaxing colours of the new landscape.

The natural stone of Lithos Design proved to be the ideal material to emphasise spaces and architectural structures by means of feature walls that blend in with the natural setting, making the ambiance especially welcoming and harmonious.

The Onda model from the Muri di Pietra collection was selected to create an architectural element that acts as a partition: a free-standing wall of the utmost charm, especially when lit, that delimits the open-air restaurant and bar with extraordinary lightness, creating a partially see-through effect.

The use of the Virgola model from the Le Pietre Incise collection is also interesting. Virgola was used for an external cladding combined with vertical green: thanks to nature, expressed here with plants and marble, the resulting feature wall creates an overall effect of harmony and well-being, which is vital for the resort’s atmosphere.

This is an example of how the old and reassuring charm of natural stone is always trendy, thanks to the design, research and industrial production of Lithos Design.

Lithos Design was established in 2007 thanks to the entrepreneurial flair of two brothers, Claudio and Alberto Bevilacqua, who were able to develop the company’s business in the stone cladding industry, focusing on design, research and cutting-edge technological investments. Today, just a few years on, Lithos Design is known across the globe for its top-notch design, innovation and quality standards which epitomise the “Made in Italy” trademark, and especially as one of the leading companies to have introduced the concept of industrial stone design. www.lithosdesign.com

Onda, Muri di Pietra collection
Design: Raffaello Galiotto
Muri di Pietra is a modular collection of decorative self supporting walls. The wall is conceived as a functional element (to separate rooms, to create ornamental barriers, to organise exclusive spaces) as well as a decorative feature due to the extreme original appeal of the processing. Indeed, the solidity of stone blends perfectly with the fluidity and lightness of the lines and perforations which create games of chiaroscuro and partially opaque effects affording a strong emotional impact. As in modular games, the models in the Muri di Pietra collection can be height and width adjusted, starting with the standard module sizes.

In the Onda model, the presence of angular modules also permits the design of curves to the left and right depending on your specific needs. The result is an object that blends in seamlessly with the architecture of both domestic and contract settings. Muri di Pietra walls have an invisible steel frame which can be attached to the floor and/or the ceiling. The modules can be assembled dry or with a thin film of glue which proves almost invisible.
Dimensions: 60/90 cm x 20 cm x h 10 cm
Materials: this model is available in several stone materials.

Virgola, Le Pietre Incise collection
Design: Raffaello Galiotto
With the Le Pietre Incise collection, Lithos Design creates games of material and light, intriguing optical effects for stone claddings which are bound to astound. Le Pietre Incise are available on stone slabs which are machined flat or which feature a curved design to give the wall depth and movement. All the models and surfaces in the collection are modular, so as to increase extensively the creative and applicative freedom of architects and interior designers. The choreographic Virgola cladding is based on the graphic symbol of the comma, which is the starting point for the creation of an original and
tantalising cladding.
Dimensions: 60 cm x 60 cm x 2 cm modules
Materials: this model is available in several stone materials.
