    The synergy between Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and a team of leading companies will give life to an exclusive event that will make its debut as part of Bologna Water Design, and as a “sideshow” to the showroom of Cersaie 2012.
    From September 25 to 29, in the refurbished buildings of the monumental complex of the Former Hospital Bastardini, the spotlight will turn to STONESCAPE – the fable-like set-up installed for Agape, Il Casone and Mapei – in the form of a lytic landscape where natural and artificial elements coexist in an awe-inspiring scenery.
    Through a project concept and a sensual approach that interpret the embracing setting of Pietra Forte Fiorentina sandstone with the same refinement of the elements for the bathroom space that rise out of the water, Il Casone – leader in the industry of extraction and processing of Pietra Forte Fiorentina –, Agape – for 40 years now the benchmark for bathroom decor projects in the top-tier market –, and Mapei – the
    biggest manufacturer worldwide of adhesives and sealing products for architecture–, have chosen the poetic and essential creativity of Master Kengo Kuma to assert their avant-garde technological know-how and to experiment with their propensity for innovation.
    The water models the space in curve and convex lines, drawing liquid shapes that
    transform the surfaces from matt to shiny, and urges the onlooker to gently caress
    them. The body of water that takes center stage and is sculpted into the Pietra
    Forte Fiorentina is a magical and fascinating picture of soft and elegant domestic sculptures: large bathtubs and wash-basins, the latter a tribute to the work of Angelo Mangiarotti, who recently passed away.

    STONESCAPE will be officially inaugurated on September 25th (event strictly reserved,) in the presence of architect Kengo Kuma and with the appearance of Philippe Daverio, special guest of the event Bologna Water Design 2012.
