In the entrance hall of a luxurious apartment, "iride" welcomes guests between art-work and marble partition.

The multi award-winning studio grupoarquitectura, established in 1980 by Daniel Álvarez in Mexico City, has picked the Lithos Design Primes line for a luxury project in his home city, a private residence in the Santa Fe district.

Departamento Basalto spans a surface area of 385 m² distributed over two storeys; multiple materials - Nogal wood for the walls, Basaltic Stone in the communal areas, Calacatta marble in the bathrooms and Bardiglio Nuvolato marble for the partition in the entrance hall - blend together to create a uniform and continuous space that is only interrupted to allow the breathtaking city views to seep in through the large floor-to-ceiling windows.

Iride from the Diaframmi collection was installed in the entrance hall to welcome guests upon arrival, acting as both a work of art and a partition. Placed right behind the dining table, Iride in fact defines the room and sets the entrance hall aside into a cosy space, creating an iconic backdrop for diners: the stone wall does not go unnoticed and is concurrently light-weight thanks to its silhouettes and perforations.

Through research and technology, Lithos Design revolutionises the decorative use of stone, which turns into a sculptural item of interior décor with multiple functions: from a decorative element that embellishes its surroundings like a work of art, to a partition capable of defining the architectural space.
