Product description Specification

Karst is a distinctive landscape shaped by the dissolving action of water on soluble rocks like the famous Dolomite’s mountains, Unesco World Heritage. The development of karst occurs whenever acidic water starts to break down the surface of bedrock near its cracks. The geological process, occurring over many thousands of years, results in unusual surface and subsurface features ranging from sinkholes, vertical shafts, disappearing streams and springs, to complex underground drainage systems and caves allowing for rapid and often turbulent water flow.

Alcarol retrieved pieces of local karst stone partially covered with native mosses and lichens, and has preserved this skin marked by time using a transparent resin resembling the water in which these stones lay submerged through various erosion eras. The section planes reveal the amazing shapes and cavities generated by the water, freezing the present instant and endowing the blocks with a new and eternal functionality.

Design: Andrea Forti & Eleonora Dal Farra
Material: Karst Stone, Natural Mosses, Extraclear Polished Resin. Natural stone not covered by resin on the section planes.
Swivel Castors or Felt hidden at the bottom.
