Beyond 4 Sides of a Rectangle

How is this for your floor? If not indoors, then what about outdoors? Can you appreciate the surface finish of these multi-sided irregular stones?

I’ve observed that plenty of rooms are floored with the same kind of gigantic rectangular slabs of stone or marble, irrespective of the size of surface area to be floored.

Big slabs are faster and may be easier to lay, and therefore quite easily, also quite ugly to look at. The other day I was at someone’s place in Shahibag, Ahmedabad, and they’ve put huge glossy slabs on the walls! Alright!

One measure for those who are getting their interior/exterior design done:

Size of the surface area of the floor / Size of a rectangular slab (or stone piece)

The the greater the result, the better you would feel when the floor is done.

For example, if the room is 15ft * 12ft, and the slab size is 6ft * 2.5ft, it will take just 12 slabs to floor the entire area. Now think if the stone size is 1.5ft * 1.5ft, it will take 80 stone-pieces to floor the area.

Which is a better option? 16 or 80? For your eyes? For your feet? For creative floor surfacing? For the long term?

Rock Face as Name Plate

Preparing this substantial and considerably thick block of granite for a name plate. It’s solid and heavy. This will be installed at the entrance of a project. The name may be written in brass and fixed on to this. Can you visualize? Can you guess the size of this block? Looks good?

Grooved Cobble Stones

These cobbles have 10mm groove at the edges. These are different from the usual cobble stones we see. And will accord a different look to the landscape.

Over time, natural stone changes and finds its own look, as it interacts with the elements. Would be interesting to observe these.

Mint White Stone

Welcome to this view of Mint White Stone. There’s no substitute to this. Can’t be created in vitrified tile factories.

These are 50mm thick, no less. Where will you use these? Think. Wherever you do, it may give you great company every time.

Hill-shaped building

Transamerica Pyramid San Francisco

We are not ‘architects’. But since we supply material to building projects, it isn’t hard to keep wondering about the shapes these buildings take.

Of course, we don’t have a say in anything related to shapes whatsoever. We are mere suppliers of flooring material. At best, we may have a say in ‘quality’ of the flooring material we supply.

Why must a building always feel like a cuboid block? An efficiency-based answer is the best I can muster. That’s it. No more.

I would like buildings that are hill-shaped. We like hills, right? We love hills. If not hill-like they can at least turn out triangle-shaped if they have to be skyscrapers.

These guys in San Francisco named it Pyramid! Alright, let’s bear with it.

Fluid landscaping

Of course, for a mighty majority it’s a mighty luxury to have such space in this part of the world. There’s no space means there’s no land means there’s no landscaping.

And yet there are the lucky ones who do have such a space. What do they do? They slab it. They slab it with rectangles. Nowadays, with huge rectangles. And somehow the machiners are improving their ability to slice the rocks into huge rectangles.

I haven’t had the chance to be in very many huge bungalows and huge spaces, but I’ve seen some. And the use of natural stone slabs is not one bit pleasing I must say.

In the above picture, interestingly, they are slabs but not rectangles. Endearing work! Would love to spend a lot of time doing nothing much on those two chairs. Find a wealthy uncle, a lucky cousin.

Shapes of Tile or Slab

That’s Black Granite in irregular shapes

When choosing granite or other stone for flooring or paving, what really matters? It seems to me currently 2 major points play a role while making a choice:

  1. The color of stone
  2. The natural pattern of stone surface

Surprising when I pay just a little more attention.

Why isn’t ‘shape’ of tile or stone not considered at all! Typically it’s rectangle! Or sometimes, square. Why?

The variations of natural stone coupled with and cut in different shapes can produce a magic-like floor. No, I’m not talking about just outdoors or for landscaping. I’m talking about indoors too. Here, have a look at this indoor floor:

Plenty of variations and colors in Indian granite and other natural stone to create a floor like that. If you want to execute something like that in Ahmedabad…

Asymmetric Paving Stone

I love this arrangement. Aysmmetric and never boring! While typically such stone and pattern may be thought appropriate for outdoor laying, imagine such a pattern for indoor flooring. Endlessly interesting! Of course, for indoors, the type of stone and surface finish and method of laying may change.

Flooring with Triangles

That’s a multi-colored marble floor done in a restaurant in Tel Aviv by the designer Meir Guri.

Looks wonderful, doesn’t it!? Haven’t seen anything like this in Ahmedabad or for that matter anywhere in India yet. In fact, this should look amazing  in a mix of colors of India Granite too.
