description: Ciuri is a marble sink that can be freely installed, characterised by its cantilevered structure and innovative drainage system. Its curves resemble the shape of flower, hence the name (“ciuri” is “flowers” in Sicilian dialect), while the natural imperfections and the non-uniform structure of the material make each piece unique. Sophisticated treatment processes have enabled the realisation of effects of solid and void, patterns, ripples and engravings, satin and sand-blasted finishes that modulate the surfaces creating contrasts between matt and shiny areas. The uniqueness of the colour and the pattern of the veining from the quarrying, combined with the textures achieved using modern technology give Ciuri an added value of unrepeatability despite being an industrial product.
