LSI Stone participated for the first time in the largest stone fair in the Middle East, Middle East Stone 2018. The fair takes place annually in Dubai, from September 10 to 12, 2018, and attracts consumers from all Middle East, such as Saudi Arabia, Oman, Yemen, Qatar and Kuwait.
The presence of LSI stone in the Middle East Stone 2018 goes against the strategy of increasing customers in the medium/long term in the Middle East market.
The fair was held for 3 days, with an extremely focused audience interested in Portuguese Natural Stone. Middle East Stone 2018 has provided LSI Stone many visits with new challenges for years to come.
LSI Stone was once again present at the outstanding ceremony of the 2018 Natural Stone Awards. The award-winning project was Clarges Mayfair in London, a work that combines contemporary style with the historic surroundings of Piccadilly.
The Natural Stone Awards is one of the most important awards worldwide in natural stone architecture. The ceremony took place on December 7, with more than 360 architects, interior designers, designers and suppliers, selecting the best projects in the UK every two years, with several independent judges.
The Clarges Mayfair is a natural stone project both interior and exterior, close to Green Park and Buckingham Palace, designed by the Squire & Partners Architects office. Faced with the historical surroundings of the site, Portland limestone was selected for application on the exterior facade of the building. The Portuguese natural stone provided by LSI Stone, Semi-Rijo Limestone, was chosen for application on the huge interior façade of the main entrance of the building complex, it is an interior wall of a lobby, differentiated by the curvature and high dimension of the interior façade.
In the previous edition, which took place in 2016, LSI Stone was also awarded the 7-8 St James Square project in London. We aim to continue with our growth path and contribute to our stone and knowledge to works of excellence.
