Designers have successfully used Porphyry Stone for many unique architectural solutions.
The stone is very versatile and indeed we can work it into products far from its traditions. Architects can explore new surface finishes, new installation techniques, both for interior and exterior uses.
Porphyry stone is very durable and strong, with more than 30,000 ps compression strength.
The main characteristic is the variable thickness and the natural cleft surface which is non slippery. Porphyry is also available in blocks that we can cut to size to a gauged thickness for interior paving or wall cladding.
Architects can exploit these characteristics in various forms.
Designers can express the architectural idea with different range of colors, different surface or edge finishes, different thicknesses or installation techniques.
Above are some examples.
