Creating luxury in 4 steps
- Selecting stone
- Creating visuals
- Crafting natural stone
- Installing stone products
Before we start creating a luxurious bathroom for a superyacht, we need to select stone. Our first step is to select and purchase stone that is extracted from a quarry.
We then convert the design provided by a interior designer or architect, into an achievable plan. Using the software AutoCAD, we split the design into different components.
We lay these components out to test how slabs are used in the most optimal way. This is done to keep the veining of the stone flowing throughout the bathroom components and walls as much as possible.
Before we start to cut any stone, we first create visuals that showcase how the marble slabs will look like in a finalized design.
By using a waterjet, our CNC-operator custom cuts components for the bathroom from the slabs.
Then, after the components are bonded together, our craftsmen start shaping and polishing the stone.
But before shipping the components off to a shipyard, they are double-checked by our craftsmen in our workshop.
After the components of the luxury stone products have been approved, they are carefully transported to a shipyard. They are now ready to be installed on a superyacht.
At the shipyard, our team installs the components in a superyacht. Which is the last step of creating a high-end bathroom made of natural stone.
The bathrooms at superyacht Book Ends are made of Pietra Grey and Striato Olimpico. In the centre of the large master bathroom, stands a standalone bath with a pair of hand basins to port and separate shower and head cubicles.
