GIOVANNI BARBIERI ARTISAN TILE AND STONE DESIGNER


HAND CRAFTED ARCHITECTURAL ARTWORKS

Established in 1975, the Barbieri Family of artisans have been on an eternal pursuit of perfection amusing with marble and for Giovanni, his enduring love of hand-crafting natural stone, has been a source of inspiration for many global brands, with many of his creations receiving multiple awards and recognition throughout the world. His 3-dimensional artworks range in style from simplistic forms that mimic the natural curves found in nature, through to more contemporary and geometric patterns. Giovanni draws his inspiration from his love of travel, museums and galleries and believes in the importance of being naturally aware of, as well as having the capacity to anticipate what his clients and the market needs. With exception of the gypsum designs, all Giovanni’s collections are suitable both internal and external applications and come in a variation of sizes.

Based in the small northern Italian town of Castlefranco, Giovanni has been blessed with a rich lineal heritage of master stone craftsmen. Often referred to as a modern-day renaissance artist, Giovanni handcrafts stone tile pieces that are not just your typical wall and floor coverings, but artworks in their own right. Consistently reinventing his products to create the most delicate and engaging designs, Giovanni also uses ceramic, engineered, porcelain and Murano glass materials to produce sophisticated timeless architectural masterpieces.
