Natural stone is a noble material of the most resistant in terms of construction and has been used since prehistoric times as a material of great durability. If it is true that over the years and the appearance of materials such as cement and steel, the use of natural stone has been a bit displaced. Likewise, one of its great advantages is the low environmental impact of the use of stone in terms of sustainable construction. The stone is characterized above all by the different finishes, among which we can find: polished, sandblasted, honed, flamed, anticatto, etc. These finishes depend on the different tones of the stone among which we can also find from dolomite, carrara type whites, calatta … even black cheyenne type or black zimbawe granite.

Within the most recognized decorative styles in the world, is the minimalist style.
Like natural stone we can find different finishes:
- By engraving: they are obtained by rolling with rollers engraved with drawings. This hardens the sheet and allows us to have thinner sheets. Ideal for coatings and large surfaces.
- By lamination: it is the process that is applied to all flat stainless steel products, maximizing resistance to corrosion.
- By coloring: applying color to the steel is achieved by electrolytic processes obtaining different colors.
