Ashy tones and vein patterns in unpredictable hues dominate Salvatori’s Grigio Versilia marble, featured prominently in the Archiproducts Design Awards 2023 trophy. The pale grey serves as a canvas for an unmistakable mix of shades resulting from mineral impurities in the stone.
The synergy between Salvatori and the Archiproducts Awards has continued over the years. And for the 2023 edition of the ADAs, it manifests itself in an unprecedented interpretation of the iconic trophy designed by Michael Anastassiades.
“Four years ago, when Salvatori produced the prize for the Archiproducts Design Awards for the very first time, I never imagined just how deeply involved we would become with the event,” says Gabriele Salvatori, CEO and Creative Director of the Tuscan brand. “Every year, we work together with the Awards team to recognise and celebrate the extraordinary talent and creativity of the design world. We are honoured to have created the physical prize that symbolises the commitment and passion of those artists who are shaping the future through design. We’re looking forward to continuing this great adventure together.”

The design is the same series of lines drawn by the Cypriot designer, based on the graphic language of the Archiproducts Awards logo. This year, Gris du Marais gives way to Grigio Versilia and its streaks, caused by the mineral impurities in the stone, creating a mosaic of different coloured veins from grey to cerulean blue. The veins become precious inlays, accentuated by white occlusions and intrusions that give the marble a solemn beauty.

This revitalised marble prism, at once austere and ethereal, embodies the fundamental principle of the award: the profound alchemy between designer and producer.
Same language, different scenarios. Salvatori stone, combined with other materials, remains at the heart of the new furniture and surfaces collections. In the Wood Collection, a break with tradition unfolds, with wood appearing alongside Salvatori Stone in a series of wall coverings. The juxtaposition of their textures creates a harmonious interplay where one material, rigid stone, meets flexible wood, both originating from nature.

The Hito collection, created by Piero Lissoni, is inspired by the Japanese symbol ‘人’, which means ‘person’. Comprising a storage unit, washbasin, mirror, mobile chest of drawers and pouf, this collection emphasises the many ways in which it can be customised.
Lissoni’s Patchwork wallcovering collection interprets sustainability through the reuse of production waste, in line with a zero-waste philosophy.
In the spirit of recycling and zero waste, Salvatori introduces the Passepartout collection of wall coverings, an innovative range that combines different marbles to create unconventional solutions while minimising the use of stone.
