Axolotl Stone is the newest, natural surface that is so lightweight and flexible, it revolutionizes how stone finishes can be used in architecture and design. The sheets are extremely flexible, allowing stone to be used in unique designs at a fraction of the cost of solid stone.
The genuine sheets are derived from natural slate and quartzite slabs. Each piece is unique and showcases the inherent beauty, texture and luster of natural stone finishes. The raw split surface of the slate and the interchanging colors of each stone layer are unique, meaning no two pieces are alike.
Axolotl stone surfaces are available in a selection of 21 different finishes and in two styles: Axolotl Stone and Axolotl Flex Stone. Both surfaces are ultra-thin at 1-3mm, they can be curved to a convex or concave profile, and can be bent to a minimum 200mm radius in some stone types, depending on the grain direction.
Axolotl Stone can be applied over nearly any solid substrate including concrete, metal, plywood, fiberglass, MDF, Masonite®, door skins and cabinetry. And, it is easy to work with using standard woodworking tools, sealers and adhesives.
By using Axolotl Stone finishes in place of solid stone, we save more than 80% of natural resources in the form of stone, sand and cement and leave a smaller environmental footprint. And, Axolotl Stone panels weigh up to 20 times less than that of a solid stone object of the same size, making them easier to transport and handle.
