'House of Stone' installation by John Pawson, in collaboration with Salvatori and lighting specialists KKDC, at the 2010 Milan Salone del Mobile

As project titles go, ‘House of Stone’ is, well, about as literal as you can get. At the Interni Think Tank exhibition in Milan during last month’s Salone del Mobile, renowned British architect John Pawson, in collaboration with Salvatori and lighting specialists KKDC, presented a highly graphic, archetypically house-shaped installation made of meticulously cut, recycled stone.

The project for Pawson was all about precision: ‘The planes in the dark stone convey a sense of essentiality and precision.’ The material itself consisted of a stone residue formulated by industry leaders Salvatori, which is made up of 99% stone scrap and 1% natural resin, the latter acting as a bonding agent.

Drama was provided in the interior of the house by concealed LED lighting, courtesy of KKDC, whose linearity served to underscore the structure’s planes.
