Giovanni Barbieri has been carving a niche for himself in the stone business for more than two and a half decades. From modest beginnings working in his brother’s business he has grown into a master of innovation and technique in the design world, garnering many patents and awards along the way.
It is with great delight that New Ravenna announces our collaboration with this talented and dynamic artisan, and the introduction into our catalog of his hand carved stone, available in classic Lucido and Timeworn finishes. Classic Lucido is a polished finish with a slight surface undulation, creating a refined look that hints at the organic origin of the stone. Its edges are straight and tailored.
Timeworn finished tiles have a honed, slightly undulating surface with a more uneven, rustic appearance and evokes the feeling of ancient stone that has been naturally shaped by time and the elements.
Most of the Giovanni Barbieri collection will be stocked in both finishes and ready to ship for instant gratification, however it will still be possible to special order other materials, shapes, and sizes (even larger formats).
