Sikania

The stones of Sicily

The collection takes its name from the place where the material was extracted. Specifically, these are some and important Sicilian basins in which the famous Etna lava stone, the Modica stone and the Pece stone are extracted.

Lava stone is a highly resistant volcanic rock with particular structural characteristics that make it very popular also in interior design works.

The stone of Modica, a calcareous rock with a golden white color extracted in almost superficial layers, has excellent workability and has been widely used in the past in the Sicilian Baroque masterpieces.

The Pece stone, whose quarrying area is Ragusa, represents a variant of the Modica stone with a burnished color. It has a slightly softer structure and the particularity of being soaked in hydrocarbons present in the subsoil. For this particular feature, in the past, it was used as an insulating material in the entrance floors and in the boiserie of noble buildings. Within the collection, the Sicilian designer has created three washbasins, one with an oval shape (ESCHILO) and two with a circular shape (OMERO and TIRTEO).

ESCHILO

ESCHILO is an oval-shaped countertop washbasin designed by the Sicilian designer with precise proportions that enhance the materiality of Sicilian stones.

It is a large washbasin with a medium height profile, with attention to the smallest details and can be suitable for both private bathrooms and accommodation facilities. It is made of lava stone, modica stone and pitch stone.

LIFT

LIFT from the 'Sikania' collection is one of the products that best represents the synthesis of the Sicilian designer's long experience in the world of natural stones. Generated by precise and well-studied proportions that contribute to enhancing the stylistic code of the product, LIFT conveys a feeling of lightness contrasted with the strong materiality inherent in the stone material. Visual lightness obtained thanks to the system with removable stone and / or wood slats supported by a retractable structure obtained by extrusion from the base of the plate.

OMERO

OMERO is a circular countertop washbasin designed by the Sicilian designer with a slightly curved section to enhance the materiality of Sicilian stones.

It is a medium-sized sink, with a low profile with attention to the smallest details, and can be suitable for both private bathrooms with a minimal design and for hospitality facilities. It is made of Lava Stone, Modica Stone and Pitch Stone.

TIRTEO

TIRTEO is a circular countertop washbasin with a study of details that make it simple and elegant.

It is a medium-sized sink with a low profile and can be suitable for both private bathrooms with a minimal design and for hospitality facilities. It is made of lava stone, modica stone and pitch stone.
