    Blow of heart: "Boulder Plate" alliance between stone and metal

    The studio of Spanish designer Andreu Carulla Studio realized this project for their client the restaurant El Celler of Can Roca in Catalonia. The realization of this project consists in choosing a rock in nature. This serves as a base for adapting the metal tripod. Each rock being unique, it is necessary to design each tripod so that it fits perfectly to the shape of the stone. The rocks owe their shape to the passage of water from the nearby stream.
