Project – Blocks
To honour a memory and commemorate history, timeless natural stone is the obvious choice. At Polycor, we are particularly proud of our contribution to the creation of these monuments.
Enhancement of urban heritage
- Residential clients
In Pennsylvania a little known quarry is turning out a black granite with dramatic veining, and it’s showing up in both living rooms and city parks.
Back in 2014 Hugo Vega, vice president of sales North America at Polycor, noticed that the architects he was calling on were lacking a thin stone veneer that was light enough and strong enough for cladding large scale architectural projects. After some R&D within the company, Polycor went on to release its 1 cm reinforced slabs and Vega returned to his architects in triumph. Only their response was, “That’s great, but we need a way to hang it.”
Cut it linear or on the rift, rough it up or make it shine. No matter how you slice it, this American limestone is the versatile, durable answer to all your soothing grey dreams.
