The Shard - Arabescato Orobico
October 11th, 2012 in Factory Visits, New Stone
Not long ago I was asked to find a marble I was not familiar with, Arabescato Orobico. It was to be for bar tops and wall cladding in the The Shangri La Hotel located in The Shard. Unlike the material more commonly known as Arabescato (featured in the product section on this site) the Orobico (grey version – there is a Rosso too) is a anthracite/blue silvery grey with some mustard/brown aspects all mixed up with the most incredible movement and markings.
