COMPANY PRESENTATION

THE COMPANY (MARMISTS in LECCE):

Our company has been operating in the marble, granite and stone masonry business since 1970.
Having started out from a small artisanal workshop, as atrading individual business, it gradually expanded its manufacturing activity over the course of years.

After meeting with considerable success both locally and nationally, in 1990, it became necessary to operate from an adequately sized plant (an area of approximately 5,000 m2 comprising an industrial workshop, depot-warehouse – offices and showroom) in the industrial zone of the town of Matino, which now employs around 30 people, and has enabled the company to also make a name for itself in international markets.

ACTIVITY

The initial activity of the Firm consisted in the processing of marble and granite slabs to make finishing elements, such as the frames and sills of doors and windows, as well as surface claddings for stairways, which was extended over time to include indoor and outdoor floorings destined for residential, office and commercial interiors, as well as wall and floor surface coverings for bathrooms and kitchens. Once this new manufacturing phase was successfully achieved, also from a commercial point of view, the company went on to expand its business with a production, which continued to be centered on stonemasonry, but started to include wood and iron working processes, enabling the production of furnishings such as tables, chairs and kitchens decorated with stone and marble inlays, applied according to the mosaic technique on a wood or iron substrate.

One particularly noteworthy technique of ours consists in the application of a marble veneer to a special lightweight aluminium backing, enabling us to produce any form of surface cladding (kitchen and bathroom tops, tables, baptismal fonts, etc.), making the end product light and easy to handle, yet waterproof and resistant to all outdoor weather conditions.

TAPESTRIES

Recently, the creation of Tapestries has been experimented, using the mosaic technique on a canvas support. This product was presented at the Cersaie trade fair in Bologna, raising great interest among trade operators, and winning best new innovation of the exhibition.
The first collection of Tapestries was created in 2001 by the well-known designer Prof. Francesco Spada, and was titled “Stones Village”.
It consisted of seven tapestries which are still in production today, thanks to their outstanding appeal. Our company is the only producer of Mosaic Tapestries in marble.

Among other projects involving the collaboration with Prof. Spada was a reproduction the floor of Otranto Cathedral, the Tree of Life.
This collection of mosaic panels, titled “Il Bestiario”, was presented at Abitare il Tempo 2003, in Verona.

Our Tapestries have achieved outstanding success in the Arab Emirates where numerous sheiks have commissioned mosaic reproductions of their own portraits.

THE COMPANY

Our company has exhibited regularly at the Salone Internazionale della Ceramica and CERSAIE Arredobagno (Bologna) since 1995. It has also taken part in various trade fairs abroad: Bau – Munich (Germany), Spoga – Cologne (Germany), Saudi Furniture & Interiors (Riyadh), Covering – Orlando-Florida (US), during which a moving tapestry was donated to the City of New York, under the patronage of the City of Matino, to commemorate the firemen who lost their lives in the Twin Tower terrorist attack of September 11th.

The company has also exhibited several times at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, in Milan, and at Medistone Expo, in Bari.

Our clientele is varied, and we use several sales channels to market our products: we have a sales network of agents and direct retailers in Italy and Europe, and collaborate with architectural firms, distributors and importers both in Italy and abroad.

From 2003 to 2008, our company was an official supplier of marble to the MARAZZI Group (supplying: mosaic works, modular marble, capitals, Greek frets, trims and numerous special projects).

A MANUFACTURING APPROACH OF AN ARTISANAL NATURE

Our company utilise artisanal and/or semi industrial techniques in its production (according to the customer’s requirements) in its production plant in Lecce.

Our product range, as indicated in the previous paragraph, is extremely vast. All of our products may be custom-made to the specifications of the end-customer, no matter how “challenging” they prove to be.

So customization may start from the choice of colour and the type of stone and go on to involve the final design, enabling the end-customer to purchase a UNIQUE PRODUCT”, created especially to measure 

Size is not a problem either! In fact, even if the product requested by the end-customer happens to be particularly large, it will be packaged in numbered sections which may easily be “assembled” on site, like a puzzle.

IN BRIEF:

Marmisti Lecce“THE BEAUTY OF NATURAL STONE ARTFULLY CRAFTED..

..linear harmony, the kindling of fantastic geometric patterns…. create cornices, roses, simple yet effective trims, imaginative decorations.

Strength and elegance are the most evident signs. A closer look will reveal the artful, almost musical, rhythm and the masterfully controlled undulation ensuring that no note is out of tune or overly conspicuous with regard to the others…”

THIS IS HOW THE COMPANY DESCRIBES ITS WORK, AND THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO ENTRUST THE EXECUTION OF YOUR PROJECT TO OUR COMPANY.

OUR QUALITY SYSTEM & RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

ALL OUR PRODUCTS ARE MADE FROM NATURAL MARBLE AND STONE

Here is a brief operational description of how some of our core products are manufactured:

– MODULAR MARBLE: 3 cm thick marble slabs are used for this purpose. Once they are cut in the required format (e.g. 30×30), they are split and then calibrated to a thickness of 1 cm before being bevelled, finally they are polished or antiqued (using eco-friendly non-polluting products).

– MOSAIC: achieved using thick slabs. After the cutting-splitting and calibration to 0.7mm phases, the tesserae are then mechanically or manually cut (1.5×1.5 – 3×3 etc.) . They are subsequently arranged on a fibreglass mesh and attached using special glues.

– TABLES: these are made in an aluminium honeycomb structure and clad with 0.5 mm thick over the entire surface. In this way, the end product is lightweight and easy to move.

All manufacturing processes are carried out without using harmful and/or toxic products.

OUR PRODUCT RANGE

We make the following products:

1) modular marble: suitable for floorings and indoor/outdoor surface claddings – produced in a thickness of 1 cm, it is calibrated and bevelled like a ceramic product. The standard formats range from 40 x 40 to 5 x 5, but other formats and thicknesses are available on request

2) mosaics: mosaics may be supplied in standard formats or as artworks, made to customer specifications. Suitable for indoor or outdoor applications

3) Greek frets and trims: these are strips – small inlayed or mosaic tiles – suitable for finishing and decorating floors and surface claddings

4) roses and central floor decorations: these are produced using the inlay (laser cutting), mosaic or cobblestone (tumbled tesserae) techniques and may, in any case, be manufactured to customer specification.

5) trimm accessories: skirting boards – cornices with a rounded edge – moulded capitals and skirting boards

6) cobblestones: these are small tumbled tiles suitable for flooring or rustic claddings.

7) Palladian cobblestones: differently shaped tumbled cobblestones pre-arranged on fibreglass mesh.

8) tapestries: lightweight wall decorations used to embellish interiors (such as hotel lobbies).

9) masonry kitchens: modular elements in multiplayer marine plywood clad with small marble tiles and kitchen tops made from a lightweight aluminium honeycomb support clad with small marble tiles (wood components are excluded)

10) tables for gardens and verandas: what makes these tables remarkable is that they are as light as wood, due to the fact that they are built on an aluminium honeycomb structure. The table base is in hand-wrought iron. This product may be supplied without the iron base if the buyer is a company in the garden furnishing business. Moreover, they may be modified and customized to the specifications of the end-customer.

MODULAR MARBLE

Floor coverings, surface claddings and trims suitable for indoor or outdoor applications, which may be polished or antiqued, as for example:

MOSAICS

Mosaics, which belong to a great tradition, are reinterpreted to meet modern tastes. They may be produced in standard formats or as artworks made to customer specifications: these are works of extraordinary appeal owing to the surprising and marvellous nuanced effects that custom-made mosaics produce.

GREEK FRETS AND TRIMS

These may be polished, antiqued or produced in the mosaic technique. Here are some examples:

ROSES AND CENTRAL FLOOR DECORATIONS

These are produced using the inlay, mosaic and cobblestone techniques, also to the specifications of the end-customer.

FINISHING ELEMENTS

Here are some examples:

COBBLESTONES

Suitable for floors or rustic claddings, they may also be sculpted:

PALLADIAN COBBLESTONES

Differently shaped small tumbled cobblestones pre-arranged on fibreglass mesh.

TAPESTRIES

These tapestries are actually mosaics set on a lightweight flexible support. Our company is the only manufacturer of this product.

Each mosaic-tapestry is a unique piece of artwork, strictly hand-made according to the rules of the thousand year-old craft of mosaic making. Made from 4-5 mm thick marble tesserae, they may be traditional or modern in style to suit any type of interior.

Eye-catching tapestries that confer prestige and refinement to the interiors they adorn.

MASONRY KITCHENS

Modular elements in multilayer marine plywood clad with small marble tiles. Here is an example (wood components excluded)

Marmisti Lecce

GARDEN FURNITURE

Each piece we create has been specifically studied to embellish your gardens and terraces. What makes them truly remarkable is the fact that they are so lightweight, having been constructed on a lightweight aluminium honeycomb support, with a hand-wrought iron base. Like our other products, they may be customized.

 

A USER-FRIENDLY SYSTEM OF TRANSPORT AND DELIVERY COMBINED WITH SIMPLE, INTUITIVE INSTALLATION

High quality products delivered on time.

Even for products involving large surface areas, transport and installation become simple and intuitive since the components are divided, clearly numbered and shipped in the same packaging.
To install, just put them together like a puzzle.

Since all of our products are produced in thicknesses ranging from 4-5 mm to 1 cm, or made to look solid (lightened marble), this reduces transport and installation costs considerably, as well as providing a product that is easier to handle.

THE SAFETY OF NATURAL PRODUCTS

One of Egram’s strong points is the fact that no harmful products are employed in its manufacturing processes.

OUR TARGET MARKET

Our typical clients are wholesale distributors or real estate developers – while we don’t do business with customers operating exclusively in the ceramics industry.

End-customers, if required, may be assisted in their definitive choice with technical advice regarding the installation and maintenance of our products since we are constantly available to solve any problem or doubt that may arise.

We can draw up projects based on the presentation of a floor plan, consulting customers with regard to their choice of colour palette and the types of marble/stone they wish to use, and sending photos of the chosen colours and indications of their positioning.
Once each and every detail has been approved by the end-customer, we move to the production phase.

Our technique also consists in applying a marble veneer to special lightweight substrates in aluminium which allows us to create any type of surface cladding (bathroom and kitchen tops, tables, baptismal fonts etc.) and makes the finished artefact light and easy to handle but also waterproof and resistant to any adverse weather conditions when used out of doors.

MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITIES:
1 crate/pallet
