Two projects that demonstrate the importance of enhancing environments by choosing the right materials to embellish the space

The precious marbles chosen by Studio Henry to embellish the first Palm Angels boutique in Paris, in the iconic Rue Saint-Honoré, are from Margraf.

Inspired by classic themes, which run seamlessly with the creative and disruptive language of the brand, the 400 square meter space reflects the French Revolution of Palm Angels: the combination of apparently contrasting elements, the unworked and the refined, the nonconformist and the conventional, which mix to achieve a synthesis of great impact.

Palm Angels in Paris: classically inspired interiors

To achieve this result, the designers drew inspiration from both contemporary cultures and classic French architectural styles, incorporating raw and refined materials, such as metal, wood and marble, to create a harmonious balance of elegance and roughness.

The spectacular ornamental staircase, which connects the ground floor to the first, is made of Lipica Unito and Fior di Pesco Carnico, marble for which Margraf holds the only existing quarry in the world in Forni Avoltri (UD).

Graphic elements, in marble, inserted into the space

To embellish the rooms and make the experience unique for visitors, special graphic elements were included such as the skater, entirely made of Fior di Pesco Carnico marble by the skilled craftsmen of Margraf. This collaboration has confirmed Margraf as the ideal partner also in luxury fashion retail projects, supporting the designers starting from the birth of the project up to the expert installation of the materials.

Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini becomes the Six Senses in Rome

Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini reopens, after a thorough renovation in full compliance with the constraints dictated by the Superintendence of Fine Arts, and becomes Six Senses Rome, the first urban hotel in Italy of the international luxury hotel brand.

The historic building is located in the heart of the Eternal City and preserves the ancient charm of the period building combined with the best tradition of international hospitality.

In the complex renovation process, the ancient soul of the Palace was preserved with its classic elements that integrate perfectly with the new contemporary and eco-sustainable design elements of the architect Patricia Urquiola.

From Classic Roman Travertine to Cipollino Green Marble

The interiors are embellished and enhanced by the choice of Margraf coverings: from the Palladian, to the large presence of the Classic Roman Travertine, the local stone of Rome, the marble and the natural stones embellish the reception, the common areas, the café-restaurant and the Spa.

The walls of the tepidarium, covered in Travertine, are finely decorated with laurel leaves worked in bas-relief, with water jet cutting and inspired by the myth of Apollo and Daphne; the floor is made of Palladian with Verde Cipollino marble chips and recalls the Roman architectural tradition.

Margraf strategic partner of designers

In the circuit of Roman baths, the mighty portals shaped in Travertine, the coverings of the same marble with a ribbed finish, precious artistic mosaic inlays and a monobloc washbasin in Verde Cipollino also stand out.

Thanks to the uniqueness of a unique material such as marble combined with a design, consultancy and installation service at the highest levels, Margraf confirms itself as an essential strategic partner for architects, interior designers and international contractors who want to create not only unique buildings but above all highly distinctive and exclusive places.
