Cartier Mansion - Marble works

Beauty is in the details, that's the guiding principle we have when we are working with natural stone.

This video shows the production of the marble floor for the Cartier Mansion project.

This particularly unique floor has to go through an extensive manufacturing process. Three different types of marble are used for each tile: Calacatta Paonazzo, Botticino and Alicante Red Marble.

After the quarrying process, these elegant marbles are brought to the production facility where they are cut before undergoing the meticulous manufacturing process. High levels of technical skill are required to ensure that the result is flawless. One by one, the three types of marble are put together like a jigsaw puzzle, after which resins and adhesives provide the necessary stability. This ensures that the created patterns remain in place and can no longer become dislodged. Finally, each tile is polished by hand and checked for its flawlessness.

The entire floor is dry-laid in the factory, allowing the result of this hard work to be seen in its entirety for the first time. Marble and natural stone have been used for building purposes for thousands of years. Some of the ancient Roman marble buildings can still be seen today. Therefore, most people associate marble with terms such as robust and durable. Not everyone knows that this sturdy material requires so much attention to detail and craftsmanship. Each piece of natural stone used in building projects carries its millennia of history and represents meticulous and detailed work. After all, the beauty is in the details, remember?
