For thousands of years, stone has been loved and sought after by people, and it has been enduring. Naturally, it is because it was collected from deep mountains and remote deserts. The cost of mining and transportation and the scarcity of its survival have doubled its value. But more importantly, stone has always exuded the original flavor of hundreds of millions of years, as if it had concentrated the essence of hundreds of millions of years of nature. The reason why stone can make people feel this way is due to its unique natural texture. Straight grain, twill grain, random grain, mesh grain, dot grain, no grain, landscape grain, wave grain, speckled grain, agate grain… Even in the current era of advanced technology, various building material manufacturers can imitate the beautiful texture of natural stone through high-tech means, but the ever-changing and dreamy texture of natural stone is still unattainable by any technical method or means.
We can even say that in the new era, it is the common mission of all stone people to explore the profound connotation of natural stone texture and reproduce the inherent aesthetic value of stone texture. When designing architectural decoration, it is often easy to think of color selection, spatial layout, and object display. However, if texture issues are not carefully considered in a design proposal, consumers are likely to miss out on a good design style.
Good textures can bring new dimensions and depth to buildings and spaces. Taking cultural stone as an example, compared to other stones, cultural stone has characteristics such as natural colors and lines, strong artistic expression ability, etc. When applied in wall decoration and decoration, it can better express the good aesthetic taste of the owner, allowing the space to better shape the visual experience of elegance, solemnity, luxury, and so on.
The texture is also a form of expressing architectural decorative art. The texture of the natural stone is not only reflected in the texture and color after polishing but also in many special processes that can produce unique texture effects on the surface of natural stone. Different surface processing techniques such as matte, rough grinding, machine cutting, acid washing, lychee, pineapple, chopping axe, burning, cracking, rolling, water flushing, sandblasting, grooving, mushrooms… can produce different uses and artistic effects for decorative stones.
In fact, texture can largely determine the direction of design ideas and the expression of design language. For example, to express a luxurious theme and a modern theme, the choice of texture is completely different. It is precisely based on the direction of design ideas and the expression of design language that with the resurgence of traditional materials and the development of design concepts, there have also been innovations in the surface construction methods of stone.
Different skin effects also bring different design visual sensations. If stacked, it is achieved by laying stones of different sizes according to a certain pattern, often giving people the impression of being rough, natural, traditional, and ecological; Like a stone basket, it is achieved by filling a cage made of metal wire with stone, giving people a natural and elegant impression; Like veneer and dry hanging, it gives people a modern and fashionable visual impression.
