Rapolano Stool/Side Table

Rapolano Stools are made of RAPOLANO'S TRAVERTINE with its cavities, preserved in EXTRACLEAR RESIN that fills the gaps resembling the water in which these rocks lay submerged through various eras. The stool is equipped with felt hidden at the bottom. The natural Travertine surface is not covered by resin on the section planes since alcarol always use a selective stone coating with a matt natural effect. The Italian town of Rapolano in the Sienese lands has been known since the ancient Romans who went there to take the thermal baths in its hot spring, and Rapolano Travertine rock was known since the ancient Etruscan times as a building material. Rapolano Travertine is a sedimentary rock formed by the precipitation of carbonate minerals from solution in ground waters, often at the mouth of a hot spring or in a limestone cave. In the latter, it can form stalactites, stalagmites, and other speleothems. It often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-colored, and even rusty varieties that distinguish it from any other Travertine in the world. alcarol -in collaboration with Vaselli- retrieved pieces of eroded Rapolano Travertine rock and has preserved its cavities marked by time using a transparent resin resembling the water in which these rocks lay submerged through various eras.Rapolano Stools are made of RAPOLANO'S TRAVERTINE with its cavities, preserved in EXTRACLEAR RESIN that fills the gaps resembling the water in which these rocks lay submerged through various eras.
