Stone Tapestry has been unveiled at Surface Design Show 2023 (7 - 9 February at Business Design Centre), designed by Squire & Partners to highlight the versatility of natural stone through surface finish and texture, celebrating stones from the British Isles.

Squire & Partners was invited by collaborators Stone Federation for the third year running to design an explorative natural stone showcase, which sits at the centre of the show’s Stone Gallery.

In line with the show’s 2023 theme of ‘shaping communities’, this year the installation has focussed on exploring some of the natural stones that have helped shape and create towns and cities across the UK and Europe. The design of the installation gives visitors a unique opportunity to explore the materials and be inspired to utilise the sustainable and aesthetic benefits of using natural stone.

The bespoke LEMA-designed table has been reused from previous years, fitted with a reinvigorated array of stones from Britannicus Stone, SolidNature, Albion Stone and Burlington Stone.

Samples have been finished by SolidNature in several different ways, from polished and sand-blasted to leathered and ‘pillowed’, to demonstrate the beauty and versatility of natural stone.

‘Exploring the Stone Tapestry’ talks will take place around the table during the show, exploring the concept behind the installation and the materials and methods used to create it.
