Crafted by nature
Larvikite is the product of minerals melting and mixing under extreme heat and preasure, before slowly cooling down, creating one of the worlds most unique feldspars.
LUNDHS Real Stone – 100% Natural Stone for kitchen work surfaces, originated between the Norwegian fjords and beautiful woods.
After months of harsh winter, the brief Scandinavian summer is a bright, lush and long-awaited time of year.
If you enjoy prepping pastry, pie crusts, and kneading and rolling out dough, a silk finish on your Lundhs real stone surface is the perfect choice for you. In bright daylight the surface will appear soft and subtle, still bringing out the gently sparkling bluish crystals.
Contemporary Scandinavian architecture and open plan living combined, emphasised by bright walls and light reflecting surfaces.
A modern family kitchen is the hub of the household. It’s the weekday launch pad and the weekend retreat.
LUNDHS Real Stone has very low water absorption
Areas like countertops, facades and flooring are all surfaces which is exposed to spill and environments that are affected by absorption. The lower value, the higher resitance to frost damages or discolouring from spill of liquids.
LUNDHS Real Stone has a flexural strength suitable for kitchen worksurfaces
Flexural strength (bending strength) is used to decide if a material is suitable for areas where panels are exposed to bending, such as façade panels and countertops. The flexural strength for façade panels should minimum be 10 mpa. Man made materials like Silestone will often have a higher flexural strength than natural stone, making it easier to produce thin worksurfaces.
LUNDHS Reals Stone has good resistance against abrasion (low value means good resistance)
Abrasion resistance is used to decide if a material is suitable for areas such as flooring, stairs or worksurfaces. Low value means good resistance.
